Depression Era Cooking

A post on Motherload, one of my favorite blogs, led me to this Youtube channel starring Clara in Upstate New York. Clara is in her nineties and shares her wisdom and experience about the Depression through lessons in cooking. History, cooking and old ladies...three of my very favorite things!!!



There is a blog too!

Oh how I wish I could have captured the wisdom of the Elders in my family in such a manner. If you have people in your life like this I urge you to capture their wisdom and experience in some way for future generations. Then share it with all of us on Youtube!

Thanks for sharing this wonderful older mentor woman. I will enjoy looking thru her blog and all.

You asked me a question on my blog. Yes I do freeze dough. In fact yesterday morning I took out pizza dough I'd frozen. I'd suggest taking it out the night before to begin thawing. I had to microwave thaw the dough, but it still worked. And frozen bread dough is still sold in stores I think for just putting in a bread pan to rise. You might look for one and read their suggestion on timing and all.
