The American Frugal Housewife
Along with simply written recipes for roasting a pig and preparing corned beef, hasty pudding, carrot pie, buffalo tongue, and scores of other dishes, this fascinating book, with its lively and direct style, also offered 19th-century readers suggestions for treating chilblains and dysentery, cleaning white kid gloves, educating one's daughters, and advice for dealing with dozens of other domestic concerns. First published in 1832, it was a 'must' for brides of the mid-1800s. An intriguing glimpse into the kitchens of the past for modern cooks, antiquarians, and nostalgia lovers.
