Cooking with Herbs in Early America

Aromatic, tasty, and healing – herbs were of the utmost importance to the colonial household.  They were prized as medicines, dyes, pesticides, air fresheners, and for numerous other purposes.  The museum's program will focus on the culinary use of herbs in early America. Members of the Cooking Committee will include herbs common to the 18th century in demonstrating open hearth cooking for visitors.  Authentic open hearth cooking is a unique feature of the museum’s programming.  Volunteers prepare early American recipes using utensils, techniques, and seasonal ingredients of the time in the Frazee Building, a separate structure on the grounds, which, like the museum, dates to the 18th century. Visitors may also view the kitchen and herb gardens, which include plantings common to colonial days.  Costumed docents will be available for tours of the restored, fully furnished farmhouse, built in 1740. Admission is $4.00 for ages 13 and older, $3.00 ages 3 to 12 and free under age 3.
