Marie K. found the Cookit! web site, that offers a “History Cookbook” which is categorized by time periods (such as Prehistoric, Romano-British, Saxons & Vikings, etc.) Within each time period, videos of individuals costumed for the era demonstrate how different recipes were prepared. They show how to make Girdle Bread over the fire (Medieval recipe) or Beancakes (Saxon/Viking recipe) or Roman Lentil Casserole also known as Pottage (a Romano-British recipe).

Parachute cord (commonly called “paracord” or “550 cord”) has umpteen uses, from lanyards and bracelets to rifle slings. Serious preppers always keep it around, especially when hunting or hiking in the back country. Braiding paracord is a fun hobby where you can inexpensively produce practical gifts that your friends and relatives will appreciate. The folks at Camping Survival tell me that they have been selling so much parachute cord that they have launched a spin-of web site: ParacordKing.com.
OBTW, Tom at Camping Survival also mentioned that they’ve added several new Honeyville food products that are now in stock and are shipping the same day or the next business day. For a limited time, you can used the 5% off coupon code “survivalblog“.
