A Collection Of Tried And Tested Depression and WWII Recipes

A Collection Of Tried And Tested Depression and WWII Recipes

One of the ways folks seemed to get by back in the day was because they learned to “make do, or do without.” They learned to make a meal out of whatever was on-hand, even if it meant finding a use for stale bread or wrinkled, old vegetables.

No matter what, nothing went to waste. Necessity was the mother of invention for these creative cooks and they came up with soups, stews and casseroles that used every single morsel of food available to them.

Many of their recipes are treasured family favorites that are still enjoyed by us today.
