I came across this great series of 18th century cooking demonstration videos by Jas. Townsend and Son for those that like alternative methods for off grid cooking.  Enjoy!  The video below shows how to make 'mushroom ketchup' ..



Baked Beans

Gingerbread

Sourdough from Leaven

Mrs. Mac,

I've watched these videos and love baking and using these cast iron pots. I bake in them with fire when camping and just love how the food comes out.
