An evening pause: Something different tonight, from a cooking show that focuses on historical recipes from the American Revolutionary War era. Not only is this fascinating, it gives us a peek into life before refrigeration.

    Caveat– This only works if your strawberry’s are “clean & uncontaminated” to start.
    Pick them fresh off your own property, immediately clean & prepare, and your success rate will approach 90%.
