We had been planning to visit this festival for several years now, But it always rains during this festival. This year was an awesome sunny 70s type of day so we packed up and enjoyed a wonderful fall day together.
http://deutschcountrydays.org/skills.html


Sausage stuffing


Some cast iron in one of the small log cabins



Some camps cast iron



Cutting wood for the festival reinactments.


A view of some of the area.


Her painting where a sight to watch.


One of the many sounds of the past. This and the smoke from the reinactors fires really set the tone of it all.




We enjoyed watching this wood carver sharing his passion.


I ment to ask this reinactor what this was for, but he was busy with several spectators With more in line so we moved on to the next camp.


I saw a trailer smoker and had to investigate He was making roasted corn for the food court.


Neat little grill this reinactor made. This was kinda hidden behind his camp. He was cooking a chicken leg quarter for his lunch meal.


Extracting the juice out of corn stalks using, "horse" power. A wood fired rectangular container partially filled with this juice Was boiling down to make molasses. We had samples and its alot better than what you buy in the store, so different it was.



I tryed to throw an axe and as you see with out a good hit my boys however hit the mark. If you could only see the pride they had. It was awesome.


These folks were sharing knowledge of dutch oven cooking and also they were helping to feed the reinactors with their grub. Heres a few pics of what they were cooking.


Cranberry Orange Cobbler

Apple Cobbler

Brisket
They had a 3 more DOs cooking Bread, Potatoes ,and Green Beans.

This was only a small portion of the day we spent here. This was a fine family friendly place to spend a day. Thanks

That looked like a great way to spend the day. Several really cool old pieces of cast iron around there.

The mystery cooker is a wood fired oven for cooking bread, like the ones that are commonly used for pizza nowadays.

Thanks for sharing the pics.

Also do a search for "Clinton Red Mill" to see a lot of pictures.

I think that they even have all images of the Mill copyrighted, as it is so popular.

Friends gave us a winter scene of the Mill wshen we moved to MA. When my wife gets back from her business trip ... she has our camera ... I'll take a picture of it.

I may have some pictures too, as we used to take my 1966 Austin Mini Cooper S and my wife's 1966 Austin Mini Moke to the local MG club's British car show at the Mill. I'll check out photo albums.

Incredibly small world!

Cool pictures. Looks very interesting and a glimpse into how people used to live. I didn't realize that they had Bud Light back then (4th pic I believe) or chimneys for charcoal. Wink

That's not corn stalks he is crushing. It is sorghum cane to make sorghum molasses out of. Delicious!

whitey, Thanks I would have loved to sample but i dident ask. Sure was neat to see.

PaulOinMA, Thanks again for the link, we enjoyed the history on the mill. Thats awesome that you were from there. If you find a few pics we would love for you to post a few. I would love to check out both your rides also how cool. Again thanks.

jeepdad, LOL on the pointers from the kids. This was the biggest festival we have been to and it sure was enjoyable.

patruns, Thanks to be honest i wanted to stay the night. It was cool.

Griffin, Thanks and i have to agree with you. Also i dident see but a couple horses. I dont think they had automobiles back then either.

BluzQue, Thanks buddy.


Big Bears BBQ,Thanks we had a great time.

Stan41,Thanks for the heads up on the sorghum cane. I was wondering where they found that tall of stalks. Now i understand. Thanks for sharing that.
