Pease porridge hot

Finally — at long last — I understand why I grew up eating creamed peas.



Georgia Brooks

Finally — at long last — I understand why I grew up eating creamed peas.

I didn’t realize this was one of my life’s mysteries. In fact, I never thought about creamed peas at all.

And then, I read the book “A Square Meal” by Jane Ziegelman and Andrew Coe and all came clear. The subtitle of the book is A Culinary History of the Great Depression. During lean times, food was stretched by pouring a white sauce (two tablespoons of flour, two tablespoons of butter and one cup milk) over vegetables, cold meat, seafood, eggs and macaroni. It expanded limited quantities of food and disguised bland foods. Home economists called it the workhorse of the American kitchen.

My mother was a child of the Depression. By the time my mother served it to our family, she wasn’t stretching food; she was dressing peas from my father’s garden. He, too, was a Depression child and always grew a kitchen garden.

So what I was eating for supper was social history.

The book’s title is misleading. I was about one-third into the book before it got to the 1930s. Before that, it was a troubling history of how we in the United States have hated/helped our hungry citizens. The national attitude was set by the Puritans who brought with them England’s notion of poor houses as punishment.  

Then, as now, we want to help the deserving poor, but the question is: Who is deserving? Widows, orphans, the elderly and the ill, of course.  These are victims of bad luck. The rest of the poor might be morally corrupt beggars on the slippery slope to sloth. Gosh, once a guy finds the road to the free soup kitchen, he might never take the higher path to hard work and self-sufficiency. 

Sometimes, other factors are influential. In the South during the Depression, poor whites were given food assistance with no strings, but poor blacks had to do road work to earn their food.

The first breadlines in the nation were in New York in the early 1900s for “Bowery bums.” They were open only in the winter and only between midnight and 1 a.m. to make sure only the truly desperate and destitute showed up to get dry bread and coffee. Breadlines were listed in tourist guidebooks as entertainment.  

The breadlines spiked following the Financial Panic of 1907 and then again after 1918 when returning Doughboys raised unemployment. A decade later, Herbert Hoover ran for president with a boast that the nation was near “the final triumph over poverty.”

Oops. 

In 1929, the stock market crashed, followed by a series of droughts, crop failures, failed business and unemployment of unimaginable numbers. By January 1930, New York soup kitchens had sprung up across the city, operated by religious communities, political clubs, business associations, veterans’ groups, socialites and even crime bosses. 

The storm crested in March 1930 on fashionable Fifth Avenue. Hungry people five abreast lined around the block for the soup kitchen at the Church of the Transfiguration. Shoppers were startled, but merchants were so distraught they protested to city officials and the mayor threatened to have the church rector on grounds of creating a public disturbance.  

Hungry citizens? Frightened shoppers? Angry retailers? Hello Tulsa!

The villain of the book is President Hoover who ate caviar off of gold plates in the White House while blocking funds for federal relief. He favored self-help and local relief. Before him, Grover Cleveland refused drought aid to Texas farmers, saying “the people support the Government, the Government should not support the people.” 

Federal policy changed when Franklin Delano Roosevelt became president and said that providing victims with shelter, clothing and food was not charity, but social duty. From this tumbled new ideas of relief — food stamps and school lunches — and a new approach to how Americans eat — canning, casseroles and white sauce.

Not all has ended happily ever after. When it comes to our attitude about feeding our hungry, I think of the philosopher Friedrich Hegel who said, “The only thing we learn from history, is that we learn nothing from history.”

 


Editor’s Note: Connie Cronley is the former executive director of Iron Gate, a soup kitchen and grocery pantry located in downtown Tulsa.
