Ingredients of these recipes include onions, honey, spittle and cobwebs, mud, toads and frogs, enemas, apple cider vinegar, bacon grease, cat skins, and powdered deer antlers. M.F.K. Fisher, one of Americas most distinguished stylists, finds that these ingredients are transformed by the addition of incantations and mystery, and ageless faith: the essentials of healing.
