The Victorians bought their food from small shops using: pounds, shillings and pence:
There were no cans or frozen foods so food was sold loose and stored at home in jars.
- grocers' shops sold dried goods like: tea, coffee, sugar and rice;
- butchers' shops sold meat;
- dairy shops sold: milk, eggs, butter and cheese.
They would heat food on a coal-fired stove and cook it in large pans.
