Money is tight and food prices are rising. Tasty Depression Era recipes connect us with past generations and offer a great way to eat cleaner and cheaper!
If you’ve had the privilege of knowing someone who lived through the Great Depression, more than likely you heard about the food they ate or didn’t eat. Learning how to cook creatively with minimal ingredients became the challenge of the time period.
Today, more and more food is processed, full of preservatives and other ingredients that most of us cannot pronounce let alone understand why it is in the food. What if we started reconsidering our choices and making more meals at home? Taking a cue from our Depression era relatives and re-learning how to cook with what we have on hand might be a challenge at first. The bonus of saving money is great, but what if the true reward could be the change in perspective on what is needed vs what is desired?
Let’s take a look at some Depression Era Recipes that require less ingredients, most of which you might already have in your cupboards!
