Experience is the best teacher; the modern world is filled with pseudo-experiences produced only through the electronic screen. By the way, if a critical mass of people reconnected with these kind of skills, or retook to self-sustaining, self-reliant ways, the power of the corrupt system would dwindle, and new associations would form… for a number of reasons, these are skills that could save your life.
In less than years, civilization spread across a vast continental wilderness. Into wild country went hunters, trappers, fur traders, miners, frontier soldiers, surveyors, and pioneer farmers.
The farmers tamed the land and made it productive. Every part of America had its pioneers. Whatever their surroundings, the pioneers had to depend on themselves and on the land.
Self-reliance was a frontier requirement. Game provided food and leather clothing.
New settlers gathered wild fruits, nuts, and berries. For salt they boiled the water of saline springs. Maple sugar was made by tapping maple trees in early spring and boiling the sap until it thickened into a tasty sweetening.
Substitutes for tea and coffee were provided by boiling sassafras root and brewing parched corn and barley. With an ax and adze for cutting tools, the pioneers made beds, tables, benches, and stools. They split logs into rails to make the zigzag fence that enclosed their clearings.
Soap with some work and luck could be made for free. Soap making was performed as a yearly or semiannual event on the homesteads of the early settlers. As the butchering of animals took place in the fall, soap was made at that time on many homesteads and farms to utilize the large supply of tallow and lard that resulted.
On the homes or farms where butchering was not done, soap was generally made in the spring using the ashes from the winter fires and the waste cooking grease, that had accumulated throughout the year. Soap making takes three basic steps. Making of the wood ash lye. Rendering or cleaning the fats.
Mixing the fats and lye solution together and boiling the mixture to make the soap. Not having a refrigerator his only way to maintain the food edible was to preserve it.

Rub Morton Salt Sugar Cure liberally over the cut surface of the hams. There is a place in the hams where you can put your finger in, so be sure that you fill that cavity with the sugar cure. For your smoke, use hickory, sassafras or corn cobs.
Smoke about four days. Some people smoke them for up to two weeks. You can tell how brown the hams are getting.
The fire is for smoke only, a very small fire.THREE Cheers for FIVE Stars! What's all the fuss about?
