New Video: How to Make Your Own Salt Pork

Our fourth installment in our 18th Century Cooking video series demonstrates just how easy it is to make your own authentic 18th-century style salt pork. Salt Pork was very common in military, navy, and homestead settings. And you’ll understand why it was so popular after trying it in your own recipes. Be sure to check this video out as it lays the foundation for other videos to come.

Even More New Products

And there are even more exciting new products around the corner!

New! Music!

The air was as crisp as a freshly picked apple. The glowing leaves of the ash trees blazed against the deep blue sky. The promise of food drifted aloft on the smoke of nearby campfires as the blacksmith’s anvil rang like a dinnerbell. And like the Piper’s call, sweet music from years gone by enchanted the heart of every child young and old. Yep. That’s how we met Hillary and Rick Wagner at Mississinewa 1812. We liked their music so much, we asked if we could use it in our videos and sell their CDs on our website. So here it is. Their music is a delightful mix of violin, hardanger, mandolin, Dadgan guitar, viola, bouzouki, hammered dulcimer, tin whistle, badhran, djembe, kora, harmonica, flute, piano, and even a little bagpipe here and there (they drip with talented like a maple tree in spring). There are three CDs that are each nearly as charming as the Wagner’s themselves, sold separately or as a set.
