The History of American Food

  • 122 Ice - A Curious Material

    19 JUN. 2024 · Histroy Cookbook you say? Check out https://a.co/d/aNRl4bjby Victoria Flexner & Jey Reifel to figure out how to make your dinner table a time machine.  Appreciate how we can travel through time and space through the grocery store & our refrigerators.  And give thanks for the wire whisk while you're at it. ----------- ICE!  How did we ever get by without it?  Well, turns out some people never really had to do without if they had enough money.  But for the little people - especially in the English speaking world, it took until the 19th century for icy treats to  move out into the masses.  Not a lot - but it was a start. And cool spaces for The People (rather than The Leaders) would only take off from there.  Becasue at the same time the Ice King was making deliveries world wide - the power of cold was coming under human control.   Come check out the earliest days of refrigerated America.

  • 121 Salt & Other Chemicals

    12 JUN. 2024 · Now that America is on the road to getting involved with the world and becoming a mechanical, industrial company, it's time to ramp up salt production and get in on the chemical revolution.   It's not just salt that matters but all the associated sodium compounds or sodas. So it's a turn about the kitchen chemistry kit, an explanation of where they all work - and the arrival of actual modern baking soda - and how it, and the new modern food systems made the modern coffee cake happen. So get salty - if you don't stay salty. Salt Potatoes Recipe: 1 gallon/4L Water 1 Cup/ 150g salt 3 lbs little potatoes - SKIN ON & unpunctured Butter or Sour cream etc. & herbs Dissolve salt, pop in the potatoes, bring to a boil - simmer about 30 min.  Until potatoes are good to eat.  Drain in a colander.  Eat with metled butter or sour cream and herbs.  No extra salt needed.

  • 120 Corn - The National Vegetable

    29 MAY. 2024 · Corn is so hot right now. No other crop even comes close in the 19th century.  This week corn grows up and shows up everywhere but on the fanciest of tables.  It's mush, it's booze, it's pork & beef and butter... and fancy pleated collars.   But wait, there's more! It was important in the Napoleonic Wars, and the power shifts in Ireland.  And ithelped drive America's first major economic depression. Pretty powerful for a little grain.  Music Credit: Fingerlympics by Doctor Turtle Show Notes: https://thehistoryofamericanfood.blogspot.com/ Email: TheHistoryofAmericanFood at gmail dot com Threads: @THoAFood Instagram: @THoAFood & some other socials... @THoAFood

Instead this episode talks about early bottling, the introduction of canning and how it was used in the early 19th century.  And there's lots of talk about botulinum toxin and botulism... a fear of my childhood, but a cosmetic procedure today.  Who knew? So to learn about the steps that lead to canned food coming in glass jars - tune in!

  • 117 The History of Glass - Mostly Translucent

    1 MAY. 2024 · (Want more Shogun? - jump over here to Prizefighters, Circus Freaks & Gangsters - shortcut: https://www.spreaker.com/episode/is-that-how-you-use-the-rules-to-win-shogun-ep-3--59537101 This week it’s glass - a history.  We talk sand (SAND!) fire, volcanos and sharp things.  Minerals, amorphous materials and how glass is a solid and not even a little a liquid.   What was glass before it was windows - or even see through?  And how badly did the early Americans want glass?  Bad enough that they lured European glass makers here - with the promise of plenty of fuel, plenty of sand (SAND!) and an apparently forever growing market.  Along with slightly less hard work with the promise of mechanization. So stand back, but look on at the shiny hot stuff and learn some facts about the history of glass.
