Throwback Thursday – February 6 – Cooking from the 1800s – Creamed Cabbage

You can follow our family on youtube on our many foster-adopt homeschooling adventures

Join us on our journey of creating 1800 and early 1900 recipes in a modern farmhouse kitchen. And learn to cook out of a cookbook from when my Great Great Grandmother was providing for her family. As we create, know that most recipes do not list out all of the ingredients and at the time, there were no temperature gauges on ovens or stoves.

Trying out something new can be difficult for kids especially. In our house, we don’t normally cook our cabbage. We normally eat ours raw in salads, coleslaw or use the leaves as wraps. But, this recipe proved to be well received by most of the kids.
