    Re: Rationing the Food

     I stick the small pieces of soap on top of my new bar.  It works and although at first the bar is a bit larger it still works.  Or if you save the small pieces and when you have saved enough grate the pieces into a bowl of some sort (I use plastic bowl some things come in) and add just enough water to make it like a slurry and using a travel soap dish as a mold pour the slurry into it and allow it to dry for several days.  Remove from the mold and allow to compleatly dry for about 2 week or more if you can.  You then have a new bar of soap.

    I would love to get some of the recipes and  information that your family has given you.  I love the old recipes and the older the better.
