Hearth Cooking Saturday: Harvest Time

September 28 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

Harvest Time in the Phoenix Mill House Garden

Experience life in the Phoenix Mill House at harvest time at our September Hearth Cooking Saturday. See the garden’s bounty and sample dishes prepared over the open hearth. Learn about the Prescott Family and their lives as mill family in the 1830s from our costumed interpreters.

The September menu includes vegetables harvested from the Prescott’s dooryard garden and features salsify with parsley butter, scrapple, turnip soup with vermicelli, Vermont Graham Bread, rhubarb pie, and sumac tea.

At this time of year, the Prescott Family is preparing for the winter days to come. The family will be making candles and discussing the ways the garden harvest can be preserved for winter.

Hearth Cooking Saturdays are open house programs. Drop in for few minutes or stay longer to taste the foods and enjoy good conversation by the fire. The house will be open from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Free admission. Donations are gratefully accepted.

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

Learn more about the Phoenix Mill House and our Hearth Cooking programs in this issue of At Home Magazine.
