Dinner Circa 1790...

Over the last few weeks we have been trying out several different recipes that date from the late 1700s through the mid 1800s as we prepare for the start of our on farm hearth cooking workshops. Tonight's dinner is courtesy of Abigail Adams (wife of our second president John Adams) and features corn chowder, skillet cranberries in sugar and rum, orange cake and hot buttered rum (apple cider heated in the hearth with rum, butter and nutmeg).
