  1. And now for something completely different. James Townsend, who has a long term Living History YouTube channel, illustrating food, drink, crafts, clothes, and books on 18th and 19th century living, also "does Dickens." James has read aloud Washington Irving's "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" during election season. For Christmas, he's Live at The Nutmeg Tavern, reading "A Christmas Carol" as author Charles Dickens did. So, get out the Nutmeg, pour some Hot Buttered Rum, and see what Ebeneezer Scrooge does when the ghost of Jacob Marley comes calling. (Two segments so far; it's expected to last through December.;)
  2. Submitted for your approval, a tale of an Indentured Servant in Colonial America. When the phrase "Indentured Servant" comes up, I picture a minor child serving a master in the 17th or 18th century American colonies. This tale is somewhat different, as a family of evicted Irish tenant farmers sign Indenture papers and end up in Philadelphia for sale to the highest bidder. If you have an ancestor who was an Indentured Servant, this tale will open your eyes to the "Pre-Steerage" Irish before the Irish Potato Famine. Warning: The "Onion cutters" are ready for even the most stalwart descendant.
  3. "Get ready boys, those 'Hessian mercenaries' are headed our way!" That's what the old history books said about the German soldiers who fought alongside British regular troops in the Revolutionary War. But Truth is stranger than Fiction; Hessians weren't mercenaries. Also, a large number of them stayed in the infant United States to add Sauerkraut and spice (Nutmeg, of course!) to the Republic.;)
  4. The year 2017 is fast fading away, so it's time to celebrate it's demise like it's 1783 or 1812. Invite "old Ebeneezer" for some "Cratchit Punch and let's see the new year in.;) If Punch is too tame, let's "go Wassailing" with roasted apples, sugar, warm Ale, and Nutmeg!
  5. Submitted for your approval, another journey to your ancestor's kitchen, when refrigeration happened during the Winter time and the food processor was YOU!;)
