Cellars or root cellars were common place when I was a child. We had no electricity.
There were no refrigerators or freezers. All that we had was the cellar.
There we stored
our vegetables, meat and eggs. The meat was usually mutton or moose. Also we had hens or chickens. There was plenty of hens
eggs and we also ate ducks eggs.
The cellar was where we also kept salt cod, dried
caplin, salt meat and pork.
