I was just looking in the pantry and saw a dozen cans of B&M original canned brown bread. I have to lay off this stuff, because my weight still hasn't recovered from Christmas, and a knee surgery that's limited my running. The B&M Brown Bread always makes me smile and brings back pleasant memories of cold mornings in the North woods with Mom cooking up breakfast on the Coleman stove and Dad cutting slabs of the wonderful brown bread for dessert. He didn't skimp on the butter, and usually put on the butter like frosting on a cake. I don't recall ever seeing him slice it with a knife. The can was opened at both ends, with one lid left in place to push the bread out, and the other lid to slice pieces off with the end of the can as a guide. It was a most welcome treat in a tent camp. Another favorite winter food of mine is acorn squash. I can find them in markets year round nowadays, but as a kid I remember them most in winter. Quartered, and cooked with olive oil and butter. Mom would always put a big hunk of butter on each piece before she brought it to the table. The magic was to poke enough holes with your fork to allow the butter to flow all through the squash before it cooled. A little salt & pepper was all that was needed to make the flavor fantastic. Like most fruits and vegetables, I eat the skin of the acorn squash. It'll get you funny looks sometimes, but it adds something to the experience. For drinks you can't beat hot cocoa with water boiled in a Kelly Kettle. The only drink that brings back older memories is boiled beer and maple syrup. It's probably something like Moxie soda and other acquired tastes, but it was sure welcome after shedding wet winter clothes when we came in from a cold day of sledding or ice skating. Anybody else have a memorable winter time food item? Hmmm, why isn't there a wilderness/homestead cooking/food forum? Or did I miss it?
