poverty cooking


Recommended Posts

Pinto bean pie was a substitute for pumpkin. It can also be made with black beans or navy. There are so many variations, adding coconut, pecans, etc.  Though it does not sound good everyone I know that has eaten it, rave over it. It does not have a beany taste.

Some of the coolest poverty recipes I have ever found were not invented due to poverty, but due to rationing!  WW2 rationing was so total that even BATH WATER was rationed...you were allowed to put 3

This is the thread that keeps on giving!

I found this.  Pinto Bean pie that tastes like pecan pie. There are a lot of versions, but basically put you make a flour crust, then the filing a can of pinto beans (or about 1/2 cups cooked pinto beans, a cup of brown sugar, 1/2 a stick of butter, 2-3 eggs, a few pinches each of Cinnamon, Nutmeg and Clove and a dash of vanilla, put the mixture into an unbaked pie and bake at 350 degrees for an hour.

Salad Dressing for Immediate Use

  • Blend 1 level tablespoon of household milk powder with 1 level tablespoon of dried egg powder
    (just don’t sniff the dried egg or you’ll never use it again...)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, a little pepper and dried mustard powder
  • Add 1 tablespoon of water and 2 tablespoons of vinegar and mix until smooth and beat well until thickens a little
  • Place in fridge until chilled and then use

 

Found this recipe. I think it could be adapted to be a "Ranch" type dressing if you added some garlic and onion powder, some DILL weed, and use pickle juice instead of the vinegar. And, IF you happen to have some Buttermilk powder you could possibly cut down on the amount of dry milk. :cook:

As a matter of fact, if you make these subs you probably wouldn't even have to use the dried egg powder at all. :thumbs:

Most likely, the egg is in there because the age of the original recipe.  Pre 1930s most non oil & vinegar salad dressing recipes contained raw egg.
