Yesterday Year 2 enjoyed a visit from Wartime Jo. She taught us about rationing during wartime and told us about how people had to be rather inventive with their food to make it last! We made and tasted lots of different sandwich fillings such as Mock Banana (made with parsnips), pilchard and leek spread and cheese and cabbage spread. We used rationed foods and vegetables that could be easily grown on British land in gardens, allotments and farms. Then we tasted pickled eggs before making some of our own and tried a pudding made from apples, fresh orange juice, condensed milk and nuts.
Some of us loved the food whilst some of us thought that we would have struggled to live during wartime Britain!
