War Time Cooking

Published: Tuesday, 03 October 2017

As part of our World War 2 topic we have been learning about the war effort in Britain. We found out how people would grow their own food, how food was rationed and the types of foods people would have eaten during the war. We then used recipes in class to create a war time meal of potato scones, marmite and lettuce and carrot and chutney sandwiches and a cabbage and raisin salad. 


War Time Recipe

Potato Scones – makes 14 pieces

450g floury potatoes (peeled and cooked)
