As many of you may know, I LOVE cooking recipes from the pioneer days, and even have some cookbooks from the early 20th century and a few from the late 19th century.

I have yet to delve into cooking anything earlier than that, mainly because the recipes are quite difficult to decipher, with strange language, and odd words.

That’s why I was so excited to find the youtube channel:

Townsends

This channel is run by the company Jas. Townsend & Son Inc. Here is a quote from their website:

“We manufacture and sell quality reproduction clothing and personal accessories from the 18th and 19th century.We service the living history community, historic sites, museums, and theatrical, motion picture, and television production companies.”

If you’re interested in pioneer cooking and old school living, this is the channel for you. It’s jam packed with wonderful and informative cooking videos. They have other videos as well. Thinking about a old fashioned barn raising? The Townsends have a video just for you! Other topics include:

  • block printing
  • setting up a wedge tent
  • knife care
  • candle making
  • tomahawk throwing
  • building earthen ovens
  • meat preservation
  • bed roll shelters
  • making a bed with dead leaves

If you’re interested in their videos, head over to their channel HERE. You can find their clothing and other products HERE. If you’d like to head to their blog, find some wonderful old timey recipes, and show it some love, you can do that at:

Savoring the Past

All week, I’ll be featuring a recipe video from the Townsend channel. I hope you enjoy learning about this period in our history as much as I do!


 

HERE’S TODAY’S VIDEO! This one includes two phenomenal recipes for asparagus. One of the recipes, Asparagus Forced in a French Loaf, is quite unique, and looks AMAZING! Quite frankly, I can’t wait to try it!

 

Until next time… Namaste my friends
