This reminds me- totally OOP, but I have a book written by Ezra Meeker, 
one of the more important pioneers to land in Washington state. In his 
account of the trip out from the Midwest, he noted that his wife buried 
eggs in the flour barrel, too keep them cool. Sounds like Eliza Jane 
wasn't the first one to think of this!
