I covet this book. I found it free online and you can take a boo at it too. Household Discoveries: An Encyclopaedia Of Practical Recipes & Processes (1913) Published.
More than one thousand pages of useful advice from numerous contributors just like you and me. This is not just a recipe book, this is a homesteading how to guide covering every topic one might need more information on to become more self sufficient. I am humbled and thrilled with the information in this book. Home decor, cleaning, daily schedules, prepping for baby, hygiene, food preservation, recipes, how to deal with leftovers of all varieties, baking, leatherworking and more. This is an all in one must have book!
One of my favorite things in the book is the fact that many of the recipes do not waste food. Every section seems to have a corresponding section dealing with leftovers. Talk about zero-waste!
Check it out, you will not be disappointed.
