Some nice types have archived a bunch of handwritten recipes (so you can have a go at making 1900s-era fudge, if you like).
Once upon a time, way before the internet was even a glimmer in the milkman’s eye (or should that be IT person’s eye?), folks had to scribble down instructions for making all their favourite foods, lest they lose the information to time immemorial. Some nice types have archived a bunch of handwritten recipes, and have gone to the trouble of typing them out, too – so you can give some person’s chocolate cookies from 1965 a whirl, or have a go at making 1900s-era fudge. Take a scroll to see some of the cute paper-based artefacts amongst the collection, then pop over to the Handwritten Recipes website to have a squiz at more.
