Foodways: Maple Day! - AT THE STANLEY-WHITMAN HOUSE | Kids Out and About Hartford

Foodways: Maple Day! - AT THE STANLEY-WHITMAN HOUSE

The process of turning maple sap into maple syrup is a cherished tradition in Connecticut. At Stanley-Whitman House, historic interpreter Dennis Picard will demonstrate how to tap a maple tree for its sap and then evaporate the sap over an open fire as part of the sugaring process. Dennis will share anecdotes of this time honored tradition by indigenous peoples of the Eastern Algonquin Peoples of the lower Connecticut River Valley and then later by English colonists in New England. Picard's demonstration is free and is family friendly.

Foodways at Stanley-Whitman House

Food in colonial times was much different compared to what we eat today. Religious beliefs, traditions, geography, growing season, harvest, and cooking methods all played a role in what was available and how much was eaten with each region developing their own unique dietary habits.
