Please enjoy our new Civil War food forum! This is a place to post and discuss recipes from the American Civil War era. Also, please welcome Donna, our new Foods of the Civil War Forum Host. How do I use this forum? We Recommend Starting a New Thread for Every New Recipe! Please give the title a descriptive name. Also, choose one of the following thread prefixes for your recipe: Authentic - right from 1800's era cookbooks, these entries can include a modern interpretation as well!Camp Food - use this prefix for simple camping foods, typically prepared without a kitchen.Recreated - modern interpretations of authentic recipes, this might be something used at a reenactment or living history presentation when authentic ingredients or methods are impractical/impossible.Modern - This prefix is for discussions of modern dishes, but we would suggest keeping these threads to a minimum. You can use a Modern recipe discussion for "Members Favorites" or something similar, but remember, this is a Civil War forum, so we prefer the majority of threads to reflect that.(No Prefix) - Threads with no prefix are for general food and cooking discussions. What Layout Should I Use? Please keep recipes neat by using a standard layout. Start with a prep time, cooking time, and oven temp (but many authentic recipes may not include these), next list your ingredients, any required hardware, and the procedure to prepare. Optionally you could include a description of the finished dish, adding a photo is always a great touch, and if you can create a video of the dish being prepared, as well as a review of how it tastes, that would be awesome! Get creative! Can We Discuss the Recipes? Of course! The first post of each recipe thread should be the recipe itself. Post a reply to start your discussions!
