Planning on making a pumpkin pie this holiday season? Whether for Thanksgiving, the holidays, or any other time of year – pumpkin pie is an all-around favorite! Visitors to our recent Preparing for Winter event may have seen the historical interpreter in Jones Farm Kitchen (ca. 1820) whipping up a delectable pumpkin pie while referencing a historical cookbook.
Try out that very historic “receipt” (called a recipe, today), from Amelia Simmons’ 1796 cookbook, “American Cookery.” Your guests will be astounded to hear that you baked a pie using an 18th-century recipe, and we’re sure they’ll also think it’s an absolutely delicious addition to the dinner table!
