1840s Cookery!

Spent the first part of Wednesday at Fort Vancouver, dressed in 1840s costume and acting as a kitchen worker in the Fort kitchen, chopping wood, hauling water, cutting up vegetables, carving the roasted chicken, beating up baked squash with sugar and cinnamon, getting different foods into serving dishes and handing them to another worker who was setting the table.

It was interesting, and yummy, too! (As volunteers, we get to eat the food we cook…)

I wish I’d brought the camera to document some of the work. I’ll try to remember for next time.
