In Granny's Time
Told to me by my granny from Milltown
In my granny’s time everything they ate was home grown. Everything was grown by the people of the house. The mother of the house would always make the bread and not from the shop. The cows were milked morning and evening and they used their milk and sold it. It was pasteurised. The people saved the cream from the milk to make their own butter.
Some families killed a pig and used that as their meat. Bacon and vegetables were often what they had for dinner. Most households had chickens and ate lots of eggs.
