Activity Details

Pound cut cabbage and mix with salt to make sauerkraut. Layer firm potatoes in straw and put crisp apples into baskets down in the root cellar. Shell dried beans and thinly slice pumpkins to hang and dry. Time to preserve food for the long winter months. Visit the 1910 and 1850 farms to learn more about how people used to prepare for the coming winter.
