Imagine being at sea for weeks on end. The supply of food and water is running out. No major port will let you in to restock. For pirates, finding food was often more important than finding buried treasure. In this episode of Rogue History, we bite into the creative ways pirates sustained themselves. Max Miller from Tasting History joins us to demonstrate one bizarre buccaneer recipe.
