Making Mealtime Meaningful: Discover how we're giving back with the 12T Cares program →

Think back to how you used to talk when you were a kid. Chances are a lot of the slang words and shorthand you used have changed quite a bit since then, no? Well, the same thing happens to food terms. Recently we were looking through an old cookbook and we noticed some strange words and phrases we had never heard before. Some of them applied to units of measurement, while others were the names of actual dishes. So we decided to dig a littler deeper and come up with some of the more silly sounding food terms we could find. From a time when standard units of measurement were not agreed upon, and when everything was made from scratch, these old food terms are almost completely unheard of today. And while we’re far from being food historians, we want to know how much you know. Take our quiz below, and let us know your results in the comments section.
