Mikro and I enjoyed learning all about old time crafts at Van Cortlandt Manor. There was:
Soapmaking: They poured water over fire place ash and strained it through straw to make the lye they combined with cooked down animal fat to make soap with.
Open Hearth Cooking:
And Food Preservation.
Mikro had a great time, and would be more than happy to bury all our carrots out in the backyard.
We also enjoyed the Croton River.
