(PCM) We have discovered a YouTube channel called Jas. Townsend and Son, Inc. that is dedicated to teaching individuals about what life was like for early pioneers living in the 1700’s. It is truly fascinating to study the way that people lived their lives before the advent of current technology began to take over.
The channel’s latest video teaches you how to make fried chicken in the way that our founding fathers would have done it! We are willing to bet it tastes better than much of our over-processed food that is currently available today.
The recipe comes from Nathan Bailey’s 1736 cookbook, “Dictionarium Domesticum”. Haven’t you always wanted to bust out your cauldron and cook over natural open flame? There is also a recipe for doughnuts as well, because who doesn’t want a little dessert after dinner. The doughnut recipe comes from the 1805 American edition of Hannah Glasse’s cookbook, “The Art of Cookery Made Plain and Easy.”
