Ration Recipes and Digging for Victory – 1940s

SKU: N/A Categories: ,

Product Description

Thursday 7th February at 7pm

It was a challenge-feeding a family when so much was rationed, women’s lives were governed by standing in queues, for whatever was available, for much of the day.

They certainly invented some innovating recipes.

Everyone was asked to dig up their lawns, take allotments, use any bit of spare ground to grow vegetables. Food was short.

Clothes were also rationed- so cut down that old shirt to make a dress for the little girl. Turn worn sheets to the middle…

Pamela McLellan takes a gentle look at the challenges and how some of them were conquered.
