Hearth Cooking Saturday: Traditional Thanksgiving
November 10, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm$3
Traditional Thanksgiving recipes are on the menu for our November Hearth Cooking Saturday! Visit the Prescott Family in the Phoenix Mill House and learn about cooking over an open hearth and the history of Thanksgiving in America. Our November menu includes pork and apple pie, Marlborough Pudding, turnip sauce, carrot soup, and Plum Pudding prepared on the hearth. These authentic 19th century recipes are prepared using the historic equipment and techniques.
In the mill house parlor, try your hand at pressing apple cider and enjoy a piping hot cup heated with a cider iron. Complement your warmed cider with a handful of popcorn freshly popped in the fireplace.
Hearth Cooking Saturdays are open house programs- visit for a few minutes or stay longer learning about daily life in the 1830s and enjoying good conversation by the fireside.
The Phoenix Mill House is a worker’s home located behind the Monadnock Center’s main building at 19 Grove Street. Our costumed interpreters, Samuel and Nancy Prescott, will share with you what life was like when they lived in the mill house in the 1830s. Hearth Cooking Saturdays offer a first-hand experience with history where you can see, smell, taste and touch the artifacts of daily life and imagine yourself living in the mill house at the beginning of the Industrial Revolution.
Museum Admission: $3 (free for members and children under 12).
