Default Cookbooks

If you are of an age that you didn't get home ec in junior high or didn't have a mother or grandmother to show you how to cook, cookbooks would be something to have.

If we find ourselves with ration stamps or limited availability of pre-prepared food products, we'll need to find the best use for what we have. I'm not talking about outback survival-type food. I'm talking about cooking from scratch. Breads, pancakes, stews, soups etc. The best cookbooks are old and found in used book stores.

I can recommend early editions of Good Housekeeping, Joy of Cooking, Betty Crocker's Cookbook. 1950's or before.

The best one I have is Good Housekeeping published during World War II which has a section of advice for sugar substitutes, preparing game, and canning and preserving.

Depression Era Cookbooks are good as well but harder to come by.
