Rural American Recipes, Wisdom, and Farm Lore

By Barbara Swell

Climb down off your tractor and dig into some old-fashioned, farm-fresh comfort food! We've got cranberry beef stew simmering on the old wood cookstove and some sweet corn just pulled off the stalks. Try a dab of this farm-churned golden butter on the orange rye bread still warm from the oven. Whether you're a born farmer, or a country-minded city person, you'll enjoy these creative rural American recipes from a time when the food was wholesome and life was full of fresh air and sunshine. These recipes, stores, jokes, advice, farm lore, and illustrations were collected from a wide variety of American agricultural sources from the 1880s to the 1950s.οΎ
