Pioneer Farm Cooking
Gunderson, Mary. Pioneer Farm Cooking. (Exploring History Through Simple Recipes.) Mankato, Minn.: Blue Earth Books, 2000.
This short book gives a general idea of what farm life might have been like in the Midwestern United States as those states were being settled by early pioneers. The book discusses some of the chores that would have been involved and gives a few recipes which have been somewhat modernized. There's a recipe for apple butter that looks really easy to make and should be quite tasty that I may have to try. The book could be used to describe typical life on a farm during that period.
This is part of the Friday series on children's literature and genealogy.
