Christie Higginbottom will present "According to Your Taste":
cooking with herbs in the 1800's, at the New Braintree Historical Society, 10 Utley Road, on Friday, January 18th (snow date January 25th) at 7 p.m. Christie will introduce a selection of culinary herbs, or "pot herbs", as they were often know. These time-honored plants improved the digestion as well as adding flavor, preserving, and embellishing dishes of all kinds. A look at historic recipes brings herbs to the table paired with meats, vegetables, breads, salads, dairy products, beverages and desserts. Handout recipe booklets will be available and refreshments will be served.
On February 15th (snow date February 22nd) at 7 p.m. at the Society, Justin and Paul Schur will present a program on traditional methods of maple sugaring and new techniques. Their family run maple sugaring operation "Grand Maple Farms" is located on 727 Moore Road in New Braintree. The Schurs tap, boil, package and distribute their syrup and confections from right here in town. Their products, which will be on hand for sale, have been shipped to many distant states and countries. The Schurs take pride in their work and are thankful for the land they farm on.
Join us for a tasting of their sweet treats.
All programs are free to the public and will take place at the
New Braintree Historical Society Museum (1939 Grade School - 10 Utley Rd.)
