Period foods resource
If appropriate, I would like to share the website for a source of some foodstuffs that are appropriate to our time period. Items such as saleratus and pearlash for example. The vendor is Deborah Peterson who is an expert on historic foods and foodways. And if you order before May 4, shipping is free. (I do like that word!) While many of her offerings are suited to the 18th century, many are still used in 19th century receipt books.
