That is one of my subscribed youtube channels, but I haven't actually made any of the recipes.

My most old school cooking has been Laura Ingalls Wilder recipes.

I watch his videos, too. No, I haven't gone out of my way to make any colonial recipes.

I did sort of go old school once in the early '80s when I was camping with the boyfriend. We'd eaten all of the food that we'd carried in. He fished and caught our breakfast. The poor fishies were out of the water and in the pan in about 60 seconds.

Haven't used his recipes, but have done that style of cooking. I've done a fair bit of dutch oven cooking over coals, not just camping but in our back yard and for office potlucks. A lot of people are really stunned that you can cook that way. Growing up we cooked part of Christmas Dinner in the fire place (not because we had to, but because it tastes really good) and I carry that tradition forward today with the dutch oven. One thing I've changed though is mama used a lot of salt port and fatback in her cooking. Now days we leave that out for health reasons. But it did add a lot of flavor.

My friend Ken, God rest his soul, used to know his way around a dutch oven. I've cooked over wood fires and charcoal.

If I don't have to stand at the stove, it's fun for me.

Turns out that the 'studies' used to pillory fat were bought and paid for.
FAT IS HEALTHY
http://articles.mercola.com/sites/ar...olesterol.aspx
The latest science suggests healthy fats (saturated and unsaturated fats from whole food, animal, and plant sources) should comprise anywhere from 50 to 85 percent of your overall energy intake.

https://www.usnews.com/news/articles...-you-after-all
[R]esearchers wrote in JAMA Internal Medicine, that the sugar industry paid scientists in the 1960s to downplay links between sugar and heart disease, and instead play up the emerging science about saturated fat as a more likely contributor to heart disease problems than sugar.

You may want to reconsider the website Mercola.com as a source. It is highly questionable.

https://www.quackwatch.org/11Ind/mercola.html

https://sciencebasedmedicine.org/9-r...-natural-news/

https://mediabiasfactcheck.com/mercola/

And from wikipedia:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joseph...arning_letters
Mercola has been the subject of a number of United States Food and Drug Administration warning letters related to his activities:

02/16/2005 - Living Fuel RX(TM) and Coconut Oil Products - For marketing products for a medical use which classifies those products as drugs in violation of 201(g)(1) of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act.[6][44]
09/21/2006 - Optimal Wellness Center - For both labeling and marketing health supplements for purposes that would render them to be classified as regulated drugs as well as failing to provide adequate directions for use on the label in the event that they were legally sold as drugs.[6][45]
03/11/2011 - Re: Meditherm Med2000 Infrared cameras - Mercola was accused of violating federal law by making claims about the efficacy of certain uses of a telethermographic camera exceeding those approved by the FDA concerning the diagnostic and therapeutic potential of the device (regulation of such claims being within the purview of the FDA).[46]
12/16/2011 - Milk Specialties Global - Wautoma - Failure to have tested for purity, strength, identity, and composition his "Dr. Mercola Vitamin K2" and other products.[47]

I lead workshops cooking on an open fire. We make breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert in three hours from start to finish (minus building the fire; that's not part of the workshop). Breakfast is usually a fritata cooked in a Dutch oven. Lunch is done in a modern-day foil pack. Dinner is something like a whole chicken, meat loaf or pork roast in a Dutch oven with potatoes and root vegetables. Dessert is a cake baked in a Dutch oven or Hobo pies in cast iron. It's more time consuming than standing in the kitchen with heat the push of a button but it's worth it.
