Eating Weird Food from the 50s (with Katherine)

Eating Weird Food from the 50s (with Katherine)

Katherine got a sort of recipe book that her grandmother put together in the 1940s and 50s. It was fascinating enough that I decided we should cook some of this REALLY WEIRD STUFF!

So much Jello you guys. *shudder*

    I never knew popovers were weird. My mom makes them whenever we have people
    over for brunch, so I’ve had them quite a few times. That jello looks
    disgusting though.

    Popovers are my family’s traditional Christmas morning food. We’ve made
    them as far back as I can remember. They’re excellent with honey butter
    while still warm.

    It’s videos like these I remember how awesome Katherine is. Also food from
    50s is weird? But our grandchildren will probably find most of the stuff we
    eat strange and gross as well.

    The last one like you eating a live liver

  15. Neceros says:

    People didn’t know wtf was good back then, and experimentation was
    expected. Of course, through the ages, some food never goes away because
    it’s just such a hit. But a large portion of what we eat today will not
    make it towards the future.

    Further, people had to do with what they had. People today have it so much
    better, and have far more conveniences, than even the people from 25 years
    ago, let alone the 50’s.

    The world is getting better.
