@AB .. yes interesting. I acquired about 6 boxes of old papers from my Aunt's old attic and have been looking through them from time to time.

I recently found where in 1842, my ancestor had a receipt for 40 cents paid to a black smith for shoeing his horses. I don't know if that was 10 cents a hoof or was for more than one horse.

But one of the most interesting was a paperback booklet of "Lydia Pinkham's, Ailments Pecular to Women" and on the inside cover it said since the booklet contained information of a delicate matter, it should be read in privacy and was not for public viewing. LOL My how times have changed.

I just now looked up Lydia Pinkham on the internet and it said she lived from 1819 to 1893 and suffered from many women's ailments and concocted some remedies in her own kitchen.

You are always coming across the most interesting things. I would love to go through some old attic treasures. Especially old newspapers and documents. I looked old Lydia up and was quite interested in her story. You can still buy the book for $12.98. lol
I liked how they compared her to modern day Dr. Ruth and Ann Landers:

She was the late 1800s version of Dr. Ruth and Ann Landers. She was a pioneer who was praised by women, yet often ridiculed by the male dominated "establishment", whose feathers she often ruffled by her outspoken common-sense approach to women's health and sexual matters.

Lydia is, however, most famous for her herbal formula for women. A product that she began selling in 1875, which has been used by millions of women.

Herbal formulations sold today for PMS and hot flashes owe much of their acceptance to the amazing efforts of Lydia and her company.
The effort Lydia made to provide women with an alternative to the poor medical services available in the late 1800s, lives on in our modern day version of Lydia's vision, LydiaPinkham.org .

@AW, thought you would like this article in today's Courier Journal since today is the anniversary of the attack:
Artifacts help pinpoint key Hatfield-McCoy battle
Artifacts recently unearthed during the filming of a new National Geographic Channel show appear to pinpoint the location of a turning point in the yearslong feud between the Hatfield and McCoy clans.
On New Year's Day of 1888 in eastern Kentucky, the Hatfield clan set Randolph McCoy's cabin ablaze and gunned down two members of the rival family.
Excavators have found bullets believed to have been fired by the McCoys in self-defense, along with fragments of windows and ceramic from a cabin.
Kim McBride, co-director of the Kentucky Archaeological Survey, also says the deed to the land was traced back to Randolph McCoy.
The property is owned by Bob Scott, a Hatfield descendant who suspected for years the land was the site of the attack.

Hi AW.:) Your kraut sounds good too, as well as the fried cornbread. Is it "hot water cornbread?" I love that stuff. My boyfriend was in the grocery today and he said at least half the buggies in the store had a head of cabbage in them. lol

Ok, since you guys are having a violent time here perhaps you can assist in my search for a Finnish soldier who is credited with 21 confirmed knife kills. I've been digging for an hour with no luck. Sure you may think it's good ol boy Simo Häyhä, but no. He was quite the sniper but I recall this dude who took out 21 Russians with his blade. The only reference I found was from Col Rex Applegate, who has a few knife kills, 7 I think,, and mentions this Finn soldier by deed not name. This dude is hiding, but I'm set on finding him.
I know some chicks from the hood that I bet could teach him a thing or two about using a knife. lol

I was going to cook some cabbage and pork today, but we went with Chinese instead, LOL! Spicy Mongolian beef to be exact.. Broiled fresh green beans on the side.

But tomorrow it's gonna be fried cabbage with crumbled bacon and onions, and a slow roasted pork loin with smashed garlic/sour cream/cheddar taters..
(AKA, loaded smashed taters, hehe).

How do you make this "hot water" cornbread? I've never done that before! I've made Polenta and sliced it up then fried it in bacon grease.. I've even added finely diced green onions, cheddar cheese and bacon crumbles to it when I felt like going "exotic", hehe. But is that the same thing as this "hot water" cornbread?

My grandmother use to make hot water cornbread. You have your grease hot in the skillet then stir together boiling water and corn meal and spoon it into the skillet making small patties. Sounds easy enough but I still can't make it taste like my grandmother did. I like it a lot better than regular cornbread baked in the oven. It's greasy but I use olive oil so that's not a big deal. Have you ever tried "Mel Tellis Cornbread?" Now that stuff is like a dessert!:)

NO! I've never heard of that, and that sounds interesting!! Is there an internet recipe for it, or do you have a secret family one you'd not mind sharing?

I have a big collection of cast iron skillets. So my cornbread especially is always made in one of them with the oil heated enough to sizzle when the batter hits it. I've even got my Grandma's huge cast iron chicken frying skillet with the cast iron lid too!! I'd not take ten thousand dollars for it.... Seriously, it's that special to me.

I hear ya! All I use is a big skillet and a smaller one, both cast iron. I don't have one with a lid though but I've been aiming to get one. I can't wait to try some recipes from my, "The Lodge Cast Iron Cookbook" that I bought myself for Christmas. lol Looks like some great recipes in it.
That's not the recipe I was thinking of. Let me go find it and I'll post it.

another way to derail a thread from any meaningful discussion of relevant topics is to flood a thread with meaningless banter about such nonsense as cornbread recipes and cast iron skillets. This is a tactic used by dis/mis-information agents when truth is exposed and they cannot think of anything to say as a counter-argument.

WOW, now that's some exotic cornbread!! I have everything here to try out a batch, too. I'm sure I'll like it because I like all the ingredients in it, hehe! Thanks!! I'll let ya know now it turns out after I make some for us.

I've read where you mentioned that cookbook before. Where did you get it?

I ask because also have a big cast iron stew pot, guess modern folk would call it a Dutch oven, with the lid. Those skillets and pots are priceless as far as I'm concerned. As long as you keep them seasoned and NEVER, EVER, let a drop of soap touch them, they'll last till the end of time...
