We did the breakfast preparing program on 11-2-2012 and it was a blast. We cooked using reciepes from 1890's and same preparation methods, hand beaters and wood fired stove and oven. Items in oven had to be turned because the heat for the fire box was on one side. They made coffee, grounds plus eggs, so the eggs would absorb the grounds giving us clear coffee, it worked! Hand made sausage with apple rings, fried cat fish, and a German Pancake that looked more like a souffle or custard or a combination of the two. Plus waffles, gems and homemade jellies and applebutter. Can not forget to mention the hot chocolate.
Sat down and ate it all all a period table, 1890's style.
Kudos to Susan, Marsha, Christine and Lisa for a fun and educational time. We can now say we hae cooked using a wood fired stove and oven.
