Skilligalee ~1910

Skilly Soup Recipe.

Today’s post is as much a feast of colorful vocabulary as it is one of food. I can’t easily find the origin of skilligalee, but it comes up as a thin broth or porridge, quite the opposite of the description below. There’s a fabulous thread about it here on the Campfire Cooking forum that mentions it as a Civil War ration.

Voting time: Do we call it skill-eh-galley or skillah-gah-lee?


Here’s a link to Camp Cookery, more to come.

Happy camping!
