I decided to take a chance and create a separate blog from my campfireshadows.wordpress.com one. The reason was Campfireshadows is a blog consisting only of Old West short stories and I wanted to keep it as such. While in many ways, heritage and trail cooking is related to the old west but I wanted the campfireshadows to stand alone.
I also wanted a blog where I could freely write of my second love, cooking. So here it is.
(My fist love it eating!)
Since these recipes were from back in the day, in following them it would be a more accurate to use as much organic products as possible. Processed butters, flours and even sugars do have a different taste from the original ingredients used back then. I leave out my own personal preferences in meats, grains etc etc because it is not my position to comment on what a person decides what type of food is best for them. Food in any form is a personal choice.
Anyway, I hope you enjoy the recipes and humor I try to put into them. 🙂 JW
