Plymouth Colony Foodways: Notes and Recipes from a 17th Century Kitchen

Something old; something new.

April 2nd, 2012 by Carolyn


A few weeks ago these little guys joined the cast of animals at Plimoth Plantation, as part of Captain Standish’s flock of sheep. They are still this cute.



Good Houswife Howland farced a young hen the other day, which is a chicken stuffed with a mixture of breadcrumbs, bacon, and ground spices, and is then stewed. YUM!



This is our future bake/brew house. The artisans are working hard on it, and the faster it’s done the faster they get pies. Not a bad trade. To learn more about them, and what they do, you can visit their blog The Riven Word.



Rumor around the village is that more baby goats and even a few chicks are on their way…. stay tuned!
