"Valuable as a footnote to Middle Atlantic States folklore of the early nineteenth century."—Publishers Weekly
One of the finest sources for studying authentic American fold diet, the 1853 facsimile edition presented here contains a wealth of recipes and folk wisdom from the Quakers, Tidewater South, and Pennsylvania Germans. This volume, with an extensive introduction and glossary, is the first attempt by an American food historian to analyze the cookery of the Quakers.
