Anyone else own old family cookbooks? Anyone want to see the great 'cuisine' of the 19th century?

I have all of my grandmother's cookbooks from the 50s and 60s where everything involves aspic and molds.

You can find that shit at most thrift shops, I'd bet close to half the population can't even read this

Not yet I just found it in my grandparents attic while cleaning it out. There are a bunch of cake and bread recipes if any brave anons want to try them. Also some mixed drinks revolving around beer that sound borderline disgusting.

Show me a bread recipe and a mixed drink recipe and I'll see how the mood takes me

Best Ginger Drops might be worth a go. Cooked like rock cakes or something I guess from the name

Not the anon you're responding to but my mother was a librarian and the basement there was jammed full of old borderline illegible stuff. Total nightmare.

Luckily we're now in the digital age where analogue hand-printed text has become obsolete and everyone will always be able to read everything forever hooray.

>implying digital text and images don't degrade over time

maybe in like another 10-50 years we'll have writing that will always be legible
