Early American Cookbook

Chapter I: Soup From early colonial times soups were a method to combine several ingredients available at the time. This chapter shares some of the soup recipes that were popular then and now.

Chapter II: Breads From early kitchens, breads were a mainstay of each meal.  Usually prepared and baked fresh in the colonial kitchen each day.

Chapter III: Vegetables Most families raised their own produce and this lead to some very tasty dishes that accompanied each meal.

Chapter IV. Meats: Many of the meat recipes were developed as a result of game that was locally available. With no supermarkets the early colonists had to make do with whatever they could catch or raise.

Chapter V: Fish & Fowl Many colonial cooks were very capable and chicken, game birds, and local fish plucked from streams or lakes were served on many tables.

Chapter VI: Relishes Many cooks created wonderful relishes that could be saved and used later.  Relishes were a way to add flavor to many of the bland dishes if fresh herbs were not available.

Chapter VII: Desserts The early colonial diners had a sweet tooth just like we do today.  Many of the desserts from that era are still delicious on today’s table. Chapter

VIII: Libations Early colonists were fond of their libations.  We include several of the popular punch recipes that have made their way to present times.
