18th-Century Fried Chicken

Warning: this video will make you hungry. The recipe for fried chicken was found in a 1736 cookbook called Dictionarium Domesticum by Nathan Bailey. It features a rather acidic marinade that ensures the finished chicken is tender and tasty. But probably different from what you’re used to. The video is from Jas. Townsend and Son, Inc., a business that sells living history products. Their YouTube channel has more on recreating history in your spare time. (via reddit)
