    I've wanted to open an Irish pub for a long time- a place with decent food- and I know that food from the Isles doesn't really have a good reputation, but that's fairly recent. Older recipes look pretty good, but they come in quantities generally made for 6-8 people at a time. This is because when they slaughtered a sheep or a goat (much less a cow!) they invited all the neighbours over and made a feast of it due to no refrigeration. If every family did that once in a year, most everybody get fed pretty well. They would obviously preserve a lot of it in sausage, jerking, etc. But that left a lot of meat that needed to be used up right away. I would expect similar situations in a truly bad economy where electricity becomes unreliable.

    I have been craving sheep's tongue souse lately with johnny-cake. I guess it's time to head back to the Bahamas.
