Pineapples - part of our food heritage.

My sister-in-law, Colleen, recently recommended we have a look at this beautifully presented blog “The Cook and the Curator” from “the Historic Houses Trust and part of the Eat Your History project  which invites you to explore our food heritage.”

This site which was started in October is a fabulous source of information about our cultural history. Jacqui Newling and Scott Hill are the researchers and presenters and their style is inviting - a great way to make history come alive.

And, some of their recipes, such as oyster loaves and calf’s foot jelly, are worth having a look at!

A highlight for me was, naturally, a video on how pineapples were used to decorate a colonial table.
