Food the old fashioned way

So you may be wondering why I'm talking about food. For our ancestors, the hunt and preservation of food stuffs was critical.  It's not like they could go to the grocery store and get peaches out of season. If the family did not obtain and preserve enough food they would go hungry.  Much of the preservation effort fell to the women and children. And if there wasn't enough food, someone went hungry!
