What secrets do historical recipe books hold? Some of them have recipes for food and drink. Others include recipes for medicines, soap, toothpaste, and ink. Earlier recipe books often contain recipes of all types: culinary, medical, and household. How did people use available ingredients to treat illnesses? What did past home remedies for coughs and colds involve?
