Finished reading The housekeeper’s book, Frances Harriet Green, 1837, which is the featured book on the foodways group. I enjoy reading these types of books. Each author has their own opinions about what they think is important for the " housewife" to know. Each book may cover different topics related to cooking and house keeping.
This particular book has a section on houseplants besides the regular cooking, laundry and cleaning instructions. Each chapter begins with general information. I found this book informative. She went into details others leave out. But then that is typical of the period.
