We've had quite a yummy time here lately talking about comfort food and Thanksgiving stuffing and the like. I've put on a few pounds thanks to our culinary rambling.

I was wondering, though, about foods of the Civil War time period. What foods/drinks sound interesting, delectable, or disgusting to you? Any favorites? Anything that sounds totally unpalatable to you? Any foods you wished were still around? Anything authentic you've tried and liked/disliked?

I once read this long, complicated article on how to make your own authentic salt pork. I'm not sure why I read the whole thing, but when I finished all I could think of was, "Yuck!" No salt pork for me, homemade or otherwise (can you still get salt pork??)!
