Amazing book. Quite old (1953)--Subtitle of book is "Not by Bread Alone".

Has many Shaker recipes, but gives a lot of narrative history of the culture of Shakers and why they developed some of the recipes they used; their philosophy about food preparation and dining, manners at table and why eating was considered important.

So, "shaker your plate" and let's have some goosebery catsup, pickled grapes, Kentucky Shoo Fly Pie, and Eldress Mary Whitcher's Okra Soup.
