We had a faker’s dozen present for the kick off of our April meeting where the special program was an exposé as to how Colonials baked in the field for the heroes of the Revolutionary War. Apparently, ingredients included whatever the bakers (sic) could get their hands on. Bakers were just troops detailed to kitchen duty. Since the “baker of the day” stayed the baker until someone complained, they were motivated to be very creative with their ingredients. One diary shows that Private Milus Ryemann once remarked, “This bread tastes like horse dung. But good!” The jury is still out whether his quip was a complaint or a compliment.
