Vintage Living Today For A Future Tormorrow
It's as easy to romanticize the past as it is to demonize it; instead, let's learn from it. More than living simply, more than living 'green', thrifty grandmas knew the importance of the 'economics' in Home Economics. The history of home ec, lessons in thrift, practical tips and ideas from the past focused on sustainability for families and out planet. Companion to http://www.thingsyourgrandmotherknew.com/

Newly-discovered 12th century recipes to be recreated : Archaeology News from Past Horizons

Newly-discovered 12th century recipes to be recreated : Archaeology News from Past Horizons | Vintage Living Today For A Future Tormorrow | Scoop.it

Newly-discovered food recipes from a 12th century Durham Priory manuscript have been found to pre-date the earliest known ones by 150 years. The recipes are to be recreated at a Durham University event later in the month.

 

The Latin manuscript mainly consists of recipes for medical ointments and cures and was compiled and written at Durham Cathedral’s priory around 1140. The work was recently been re-examined and found to contain the food recipes, which experts believe are amongst the oldest in the western medieval culinary tradition, preceding the previously known examples from circa 1290. The manuscript is now held at Sidney Sussex College, Cambridge University.

DIY Tea Tin Herbs

DIY Tea Tin Herbs | Vintage Living Today For A Future Tormorrow | Scoop.it

I love cooking for family and friends, and as all the pros will tell you, food always tastes more flavourful when it's made with fresh herbs. This quick, kid-friendly project lets you get a head start growing an herb garden before summer comes and will afford the luxury of fresh ingredients year-round. And after a long winter, I'm starved for spring greenery, and these pretty tea tins, brimming with plant life, add welcome colour to a windowsill or kitchen shelf.

Deanna Dahlsad's insight:

A great idea of recycling tins; even vintage rusted ones (in condidtions too bad to be desireable collectibles) can be used to add good taste and charm to your home.

Bek Atkins's curator insight, March 7, 2013 6:52 AM

This is an easy project that students of all abilities can achieve. This activity would develop skills in line with statements in the Australian National Curriculum: science - biological science for years F- 2. [(ACSSU002), (ACSSU017), (ACSSU211) and (ACSSU030).] These statements call for students to observe the biological processes of a variety of different organisms. The positive point for using plants is that if they are roughly treated or neglected the consequences are less traumatic then if it was a guinea pig. 

 

This activity would also translate to Home Economics where students could use their herbs to create nutritional meals. Special needs students (and in fact all young children) can be very picky about their food, especially if it is green! By growing, nurturing and then using their own produce, students have ownership and this may make students more likely to try and like the foods. 

 

Through the teaching of Home Economics skills students can begin to acquire the necessary life skills to become independent.
