Condensed Recipes Right from the Series,
This review is from: The Little House Cookbook: Frontier Foods from Laura Ingalls Wilder's Classic Stories (Paperback)As a childhood Laura Ingalls Wilder fan, I treasured every Little House book and delighted in the pioneer way of life. Now as a mother, I'm thrilled to find this book which contains excerpts from the series itself along with easy to use recipes.
Did you ever wonder as you read The Long Cold Winter how Ma made food that sustained them when they nearly starved to death? You'll find it in the Foods From The Barnyard chapter, not that too many of us will eat oxtail pot roast, but here it is.
In Staples From The Country Store you can learn to make Cornmeal Mush, Bean Porridge (along with the famous rhyme) and Corn Dodgers just as Ma did On the Banks of Plum Creek.
Are you wondering what to do with your bountiful garden of fruits and veggies? Turn to chapter 6, Foods from Gardens and Orchards. A wonderous story on Ingalls farming times and selection of recipes like Potato Cakes, Creamed Carrots, Fried Parsnips and Succotash. I was always curious about Ma's Green Tomato Pickles, now I can make them!
Any fan of Little House would delight in adding this to their collection. An excellent historical and whimsical book.
