Open hearth cooking on the Day After Thanksgiving

We are having a blast today! The museum is buzzing with people, with lots of neat "extras" to entertain and educate our visitors.

Chris is doing special open hearth cooking demonstrations today. Here's what he's up to:

Here he is, rolling out the dough for his famous "apple cobbler"!

He uses a fork to pinch the edges of the top and bottom crusts together.

Then he puts it into a Dutch oven to bake on the hearth.

Here's what happens next:

And an hour later, this is what you get!!

Before and after!

Have you ever seen one of our cooking demos in person? Chris will be doing a lot of cooking in the next few weeks. At our Holiday Open House on Friday November 30 he will be making homemade donuts from scratch.

Then on Friday December 7, he and volunteer Bill Gouge will be preparing our Holiday Open Hearth Dinner. For just $30 per person, you can enjoy a three course meal cooked over the fire! We can seat up to 48 guests. As of this morning, there were only 8 spots left, so give us a call if you are interested!
