I have written a cookbook to share my family's recipes and to encourage you to eat the fresh, seasonal foods of Gettysburg and the mid-Atlantic area. These recipes have been passed down through the generations.
I walk you through the steps for making everything from bone broth to scrapple to strawberry rhubarb pie. For the homemade pumpkin pie recipe, I explain how to cook a whole pumpkin and make homemade pie crusts using lard. For roast turkey with giblet gravy, I tell you how to reuse the bones and make soup stock. I even describe home butchering and how to use the whole hog, such as stuffing the stomach to make hogmaw and using the intestines for sausage casing!
Ok, so maybe you're not into lard and gizzards, but I also explain how to use wild edibles, and I share the menu from President Lincoln's 1865 Inauguration. There are plenty of grain-free and gluten-free recipes included, and it is all low sugar. I'm sure you'll find something interesting in this book.
