Ship Slops – Meals of the Charlotte Jane

Hope you are hungry!

So, what was for breakfast and dinner aboard the ‘Charlotte Jane’ – the first of our first four ships?

Things were much more palatable for those in upper class, complete shocker!

Breakfast was at 8.30am and consisted of roast beef or beef steaks.
Dinner was at 3pm and consisted of soup, hot boiled beef, cold duck, potatoes, hot apple pie and macaroni pudding.

For those in steerage, most of their boiling of food was done in sea water. If you were really lucky, you may have some washing water left over that you used instead…yum (gag)
