Back Victorian Food

The Victorians bought their food from small shops using: pounds, shillings and pence:
  • grocers' shops sold dried goods like: tea, coffee, sugar and rice;
  • butchers' shops sold meat;
  • dairy shops sold: milk, eggs, butter and cheese.
There were no cans or frozen foods so food was sold loose and stored at home in jars.

They would heat food on a coal-fired stove and cook it in large pans.
