<<< Hey, everyone--- I'm looking for stories about your attempts to try
period food preservation techniques. Yes, this is for my class.

I know about Lord's Salt and am going to use it for some beef...
Adamantius, you had very good luck with one of the compost recipes
keeping for years in your fridge, didn't you? Which one was it, do you
remember? >>>

You can find some stories and personal experiences in the various  
files in the Florilegium having to do with food preservation.  
Unfortunately, in this case, I tend to have such stories buried  
within the general files on food preservation, so you have to wade  
through each file a bit to find them.

This is one I can think of right away which might be of interest:
Lrds-Salt-Exp-art (15K)  9/11/00    "Lord's Salt Experiment" by Lady  

I would be interested in hearing of others experiments and tales, as
