I was born in 1937 and the depression was still making everyone miserable. The depression ended only when WWII broke out at the end of 1941, and the country mobilized to manufacture war materials. Up until then it was pretty bad. My mother cooked apples different ways until she couldn't stand to look at them. She and my dad went many times to eat with her sister who had a jar of peanut butter, and was willing to share.
Clara, the cook and narrator has 22 other videos sharing her cooking and thoughts of those days. Check here for her video's.
I was led to these little gem's by our friend Kim Kommando.
