Whistleberries, Stirabout, and Depression Cake: Food Customs and Concoctions of the Frontier West, Federal Writers’ Project 1936-1942
Edward B. Reynolds (au); Michael Kennedy (au); Greg Patent (fr)
Federal Writers’ Project field workers collected anecdotes & history surrounding the food customs & concoctions of Americans. Written in the late 1930s, the manuscript for the western section of the country abounds with tales of miners, lumberjacks, ranch housewives, & range dwellers. Present are the old standbys of sourdough & son-of-a-gun stew, but you will also discover: the staple of Dutch oven-cooked whistleberries -- cowboy slang for beans; the Irish miner’s sweet, warming, filling stirabout served in lunch pails in mining districts; & depression cake -- an eggless, butterless, milkless, bubbling, frothing mass turned delicious cake out of Depression-era necessary. Includes a selection of favorite recipes from each state. Illustrations.
