American Recipes, 1847
The patriotic covers on this 1847 American cookbook reflect a growing
national pride in a distinctly native approach to food and domestic economy.
The book contains advice on everything from how to revive tainted meat,
to how to rid the house of rats, to how to jump out of a wagon.
