For Maids Who Brew & Bake


Curious cures and delicious recipes from the 17th century are to be found within these pages. With syllabub and loblolly, pottage and spiced bread, this book describes a way of life long gone. It holds a collection of interesting and tasty tidbits with everything from dream interpretation to diet tips:

“use a measure of eating that thou mayst live long and if thou wilt be in health, then hold thine handes.”

Excerpts from old English manuscripts and Newfoundland letters paint a vivid picture of how Newfoundland’s earliest settlers might have lived.
