Included are recipes for tasty breads and interesting baked goods, skillet southern fried chicken and really good poultry dishes. The reader will also be treated to many taste-tempting soups, stews and stuffings -- and, yes, even pickles as well as loads of other wonderful things. Or a reader may wish to try some buttermilk pie, an array of wonderful desserts, rhubarb punch and other delightful beverages. Then he or she may wish to make the unusual corn bread with a streak of delicious custard running through it. Yes, anyone can now enjoy a meal exactly like that eaten by those who wore both the blue and the gray during the War Between the States - or as some unreconstructed Southerners still refer to it - the War of Northern Aggression."--Page 4 of cover.
