The Foxfire Americana Library brings you back-to-basics recipes for breads, cornbreads, puddings, cakes, and pies that are just as easily baked on a modern oven as the traditional Appalachian woodstoves where they began. For adventurous cooks, this volume also includes instructions and diagrams on how to build a churn and make your own butter.
