FOOD AND FIBER

Women on the Frontier in 2011 continued the 7 year program with a hands on approach. Women who attended (along with fort visitors) got to try their hand at things pertaining to Food and Fiber - this year’s theme. Food preparation included jerking meat, a walk through the fort garden, drying apples, salting meat for preservation, cooking methods, baking bread and churning butter and milking a cow. The fiber portion of the program included spinning, carding, weaving,  and sewing an apron.  Hats off to Kristi Heasley, event coordinator and to Fort staff Bill Farmer, Brook and Barbara Elliot, Scott New, Mary Beth Powell and Charlotte Eskew.
