Hearth Cooking Saturday: “An Apple a Day”

October 14 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

Visit the Phoenix Mill House during the Peak into Peterborough festivities for a hearth cooking demonstration featuring New Hampshire’s favorite fall fruit. Sample a variety of apple dishes both sweet and savory and try your hand at pressing apple cider.

The dishes are prepared over the open hearth using period recipes and equipment. Learn about food and cooking in the 1830s and see how the Phoenix Mill House family lived.

The Phoenix Mill House is a 19th century mill foreman’s home that was part of the Phoenix Mill, a large textile mill that once stood at the corner of Main and Grove Streets. The house is located behind the Monadnock Center’s main building at 19 Grove Street.

Hearth Cooking Saturdays are open house programs- stop by for a few minutes or stay longer enjoying good conversation by the fire. While you are visiting, be sure to see our special exhibit, 1917: Looking Back 100 Years, on display in the main building.

This hearth cooking demonstration is free and open to the public.
