Wow I just read the article about potting meat. I mentioned this in my thread the other day about cooking a bunch of deer sausage and storing it this way. People who responded sayed they had never heard of it and I was risking my life if I do it this way. Now I'm going to have to dig my thread up and mention this same website on it. Thank you very much for this new website.
I just love the stories about the depression and reading the old timers stories! And the links they give are pretty good too to other websites for homesteading.
Click on the recipe sections to find the stories of the two ladies during the depression. I understand that they add stories and information all the time so keep checking back. And they accept stories too so if you have a story you want to share, email them at the web address on the website.
I just love that website. I have been reading it on and off for two days now and still have plenty more I want to check out. It reminds me of the foxfire books only on the internet.
If someone else knows of other websites like this one with stories of the olden days, please post them here because I love these kinds of sites. We can learn so much from the old folks who have lived through the depression and their hands on experience is so valuable. God bless them for sharing their stories and knowledge.
