Some lacklustre beets, a snippet of greens and an earthenware bowl full of garlic don’t add up to much of a supper after a hard day in the fields. Our early colonial ancestors often had to scrabble for sustenance, as shown in this image of a late 18th-century kitchen. Perhaps there is some trapped creature waiting to be stewed with these meagre additions.
