Elvira was born in 1834, and started married life at 23 years of age. Shortly after marrage, she and her family moved to the wilds of Minnesota, secured a homestead and started a family.  Being a mother on the frontier in 1860 required lots of hard work & ingenuity when it came to preparing a meal, and many of these old recipes reflect such.
