Hoosac Students Churn it Up!

Delivering a bit of fun and feast 18th century style.

Hoosac School History Club students enjoyed an afternoon learning about 18th century cooking with an oat-based New England-style boiled pudding along with an opportunity to churn butter using a plunger churn, a table-top churn, as well as a shaker. The boiled dinner was finished right about the time they finished salting the butter and a feast was enjoyed by all.

Salting the butter.
We made butter!
The feast.
