I have a sneaking suspicion that I am not alone.
With that in mind, we here at mylittleprairiehome.com have started a cheeky little series of how-to videos . . . with a bit of a twist. YouTube is chock full of instructionals on how to do just about anything you can imagine. Sometimes, there are hundreds of videos on a single topic. But there isn’t a whole lot of attention given to the stuff that really interests me!
I think that’s what they call a perfect opportunity!
I’m going to look at recipes and various prairie skills that the settlers would have actually utilized way back in the day. I’ll try to keep it as real as possible and give you as much supporting information as I can. I have a tendency to be curious about strange questions, and to always dig a little deeper into the history of a recipe or skill, so, hopefully, you will learn something you never knew right along with me.
Ready for our first one? We’re going to look at how the settlers clarified pork fat for use in pastries! Yee-haw!! Let’s go!
