WELCOME TO THE PARTNERSHIP OF HISTORIC BOSTONS

Join us as we recognize and celebrate the unique historical connections between Boston, Massachusetts, founded in 1630, and Boston, Lincolnshire, England, founded in 1086.  We are dedicated to education about the two Bostons in the seventeenth century and to preserving our legacy.

This collection of Puritan and Native recipes from nasaump to samp, venison to succatash shows how Massachusetts 17th-century people cooked and ate. Find out more in this original booklet of 17th-century recipes, with their modern equivalents for modern cooks.

Through the words of 17th-century English cookbooks for English "huswifes," the recipes of travellers to early New England, and modern-day Native American foodways preserved through the centuries, we offer you a chance to savor and enjoy the pleasure of the taste of early Massachusetts.

Try these recipes in both original and modernized versions, and see for yourself what was delicious in the 1600s!  The booklet makes a great gift!
