Travel back in time to an era of home-cooked meals made from scratch with nourishing, real foods.

With recipes ranging from breakfast dishes to hearty stews, from homemade breads to rich deserts, this cookbook is perfect for anyone who loves history and for anyone wants to return to the simplicity of traditional, old-fashioned home cooking.

This cookbook includes 40 historic recipes, all sourced from antique cookbooks from the mid-19th century. The original recipes are included along with modern adaptations to make the recipes easier to follow for modern kitchens with standardized measurements and oven temperatures.

The recipes focus on using the sort of traditional ingredients that would have been commonly used during this historic period with an emphasis on natural and organic produce, humanely-raised pastured animal products, and properly prepared grains. Recipe categories include: breakfast dishes, breads, soups and stews, side dishes, main dishes, desserts, and cakes and confections.

* Why 100% whole wheat flour is not as traditional as it may seem.
* How to make historic favorites such as buttermilk biscuits, apple pandowdy, and Concord spy cake.
