On Saturday, December 14th from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., hearth cooker Becky Hendricks will lead a special class on cooking pies for six guests inside the Society's award-winning hands-on Strong-Howard House. Guests will choose from a variety of historical recipes, including tasty apple, cranberry, pear, pompion (pumpkin), pork, and onion pies, and bread and Marlboro puddings. You’ll need to bring an apron, a 9” pie plate or springform pan, a vegetable peeler or paring knife, measuring cups and spoons, a beverage mug and lunch or snack, plus a container to transport your hot pie or pudding back home with you. You’ll be cooking over the hearth and in our bake oven, as delicious smells waft through the house. Tickets are $35 per person. Because we can only accommodate six people, the last class filled up fast. If you are interested in attending, please contact Windsor Historical Society at 860-688-3813 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Or you may sign up online at www.windsorhistoricalsociety.org. The class is first come, first served! Everyone wishing to attend future hearth cooking classes will be put on a waiting list, so don’t despair if you are too late signing up for December 14th!
