War time cooking!

We have begun learning about World War 2 and what life was like in the 1940’s. We have talked about rationing food and how people adapted favourite recipes when some foods were hard to come by. In war time, people used up their stale bread to make something more tasty! Nothing was wasted. This week, back in 2013, we have made a ‘Bread and Apple Pudding’ using a war time recipe. We measured our ingredients in ounces, not in metric grams that we would normally use. Here are some photos of us busy in the kitchen, cooking up our bread pudding, using slightly fresher bread than they would have done in the 1940’s!

    Wow! Well done HG. It’s terrible teaching close to the kitchen when all those wonderful smells are emerging. If the food tasted as good as it smelled then it must’ve been fantastic. I hear that you’re also making pasties. I’m beginning to wish that I’d lived during the 1940s.
