Ever wonder how settlers got fresh bread as they moved across Missouri? Or, how Civil War soldiers prepared their dinner (if they were lucky enough to have something to eat)? Dutch ovens are one of the most versatile cooking pots available and even today a good Dutch oven can be a valuable addition to your outdoor experience.
If you would like to learn the basics on how to choose an oven, how to prep and clean an oven as well as how to cook in one, this is the class for you. If you have your own Dutch oven, but don't know how to use it, bring it along and we will help you cook in it.
Staff from the historic site will be teaching and demonstrating the basics. Call the historic site to sign up and get the list of supplies you will need to bring if you are going to try cooking. If you don't have an oven, but are thinking of getting one, then come anyway and we will have a few ovens for you to try out. Spend the day with us learning about this historic cooking pot and how to use it today, make some good memories and sample some hot pie cooked outdoors.
