Staff will use raspberries picked on the Wade House grounds to make the jam and jelly and then will seal canning jars with brandy-soaked paper rounds and five layers of tissue paper. Interpreters will also explain the differences between jams and jellies.
Jams & Jellies at Wade House
August 10 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
An event every day that begins at 10:00 am, repeating until August 11, 2019
Visitors will get to experience the canning process by watching and listening to staff as they follow recipes dating back to 1858. Early to mid-August is exactly the time of year that the Wade House household staff would have been busy preserving fruits that were ripening.
