For centuries newspapers have been helping us become better cooks. During lean times, they have given us recipes that stretch our food budgets; during abundant times, they have provided recipes for new and unusual ingredients. This blog will feature recipes found in the New York State Historic Newspapers. This online database includes newspapers from 1795, Otego Herald, to the present day.
Along the way, we will also feature “news of the day,” the day the newspaper was published.
