I cook on my old wood cook stove most days. It is so much easier to cook on than an electric or gas range. I have cooked on all types of stoves in my life. Believe me, cooking a whole meal on this stove is a breeze. The only thing is that you must have enough wood split down to the right size for your cook stove. You can’t run outside to split some wood in the middle of preparing your meal.
Woodstove Cookery by Jane Cooper is a cookbook I found to be useful when I first had my cook stove hooked up. Learning to use it is the secret to good cooking! My own stove does not have the water reservoir on it. To be quite honest with you, I don’t think I really need it. Some people might find it useful and want one.
When I started looking for some good cookbooks for my wood cook stove on Amazon, I found many! I didn’t think I would. The Home Comfort Cook Book 1925 Reprint caught my eye of course, as anything to do with old stoves is of interest to me. I would love to create a museum of old cook stoves. If I could afford them, I would buy them just to look at them, even though I’d probably be itching to fire it up and start cooking! I am not sure if this particular cook book is for wood cook stoves or just old cook stoves from 1925. I have added it to my wish list on Amazon and will find out all about it as soon as I can.
Old Stoves Are Hot! was the first book on Amazon I spotted that was about old stoves. Now I may be weird or something but I love even the old gas and electric stoves such as you see in the picture on the cover of this book. Stoves look so commercial nowadays. I guess I like that “homey” feeling when a stove reminds me of the big white one sitting in my Grandma’s kitchen.
