Recipe Websites and Books
This is the list of recipe websites and books mentioned in my own book of Gettysburg Recipes. These are my favorite resources that I love and use all the time.
I decided to list them as a webpage linked to from my book so that I can keep this list updated and accurate. If you notice anything broken here, please let me know immediately.
The Weston A. Price Foundation
My favorite website! Search through articles from past issues of the quarterly journal to find information on a variety of subjects. There are recipes for sourdough, cheese making, lactofermentation, and much more.
A Campaign for Real Milk
Figure out how you can obtain raw milk and how to give everyone the right to drink this healthy historical food.
If you decide to purchase any of the books through the Amazon links provided here, I will receive a small percentage of the sale. Thank you in advance for your support!
Just South of Gettysburg
This book was written by a distant cousin on the Legore side of my family. He included an interesting story in the book about a Confederate prisoner of war who got out of line to walk up to our ancestor’s house along Taneytown Road and buy a pie!
This book covers the history of sugar, its connection to slavery, and its health effects.
Plant Identification Books
My personal favorite is the one by Steve Brill or Botany in a Day if I’m totally clueless, but there are many good books on this subject.
Herbal Remedy Books
How to choose a favorite? There are so many good ones!
Nutrition and Physical Degeneration
This is the classic work by Dr. Weston A. Price where he traveled around the world to photograph isolated groups of healthy people and see what they were eating.
Because it is a vintage book, it’s also available through a free online library:Nutrition and Physical Degeneration
These books also contain a lot of information and historical background, but they focus on traditional recipes.
I use this book daily. One of the many things it explains is how to make whey and how to use it.
This covers a variety of live cultured foods. My favorite chapter is the one that describes sauerkraut from around the world.
If you are looking for more historical information, here are some popular books.
You could also look at Mrs. Beaton’s Book of Household Management first published in monthly parts from 1859 to 1861 or the historical American cookbooks in the online Feeding America project which is sponsored by Michigan State University. These are free online cookbooks with authentic Civil War recipes.
