Good resource for Age of Austerity cooking recipes together with some prehistoric recipes.

Interesting recipe.

But I'm wondering about that "1lb [of] swede". Can I substitute German or Italian and still have the recipe come out. There is a vendor of Mexicans down by the local Home Depot if I could substitute so freely. I didn't see any prices but given that the recipe only calls for one pound I would think your average 170 pound person would go a long way and might be quite a bargain.

I'm afraid not as they aren't as flavorsome. The very best Swede in question (we call them neeps in Scotland) has to be hunted down using packs of Haggi. Once the neep has been discovered by the Haggis, the Haggi are also culled and served up with the neeps usually with some potatoes. The long tradition happens during a festival called Burns Night. Yes I know it sounds quite barbaric, but then so is Scotland.

Haggis racing can sometimes be seen as various venues in the UK.

It's probably better known in the US as rutabaga.

Cooking and home economics seems to have become a lost art today despite the prevalence of many a cookery show on the TV, which many folks seem to watch avidly or is the phenomenon just more vicarious thrills.

The lost art of cooking

Out of interest is home economics and practical cooking skills still taught in schools today or has this been dropped for other subjects in the curriculum. Budgeting for and preparing 3 square meals a day with limited finances may become an important skill in the next decade of austerity together with supplementing food resources with some hunting and gathering. Storing and consuming MREs and cans of Mountain House isn't really realistic and it is very expensive and after a few days and weeks rather unpalatable in the medium to long term.

I'll have to find my recipe for roasted Snipe.

As everyone knows, the best Snipe are caught in burlap bags in a forest during the full moon. You shine a flashlight into the bag and make a noise like a snipe and the little buggers run right into the bag.

I wonder if a Haggis could beat a Snipe in a race??

That only works for the common Snipe. Do you know how to catch a Unique Snipe?

Unique up on it.

And how to catch a tame one?

De tame way.
