Get a free download of the Food in Kansas Kids’ Cookbook offered by the Kansas Historical Society. Originally published in 1986, this colorful pdf cookbook highlights both historical and nutritional information, and includes lots of pictures and really neat recipes!
See how you can make beef jerky like the Plains Indians (except you’ll use the oven), the gingerbread of the Early Settlers, Hardtack of Soldiers and Officers, and many more recipes with strong ties to Kansas history. One notable inclusion: the fast food hamburger, which was first introduced to the world in Kansas in 1921!
