Girl Scouts Earn Cooking Merit Badge

On Sunday afternoon, February 18th, a group of Guilford Girl Scouts and parents visited the Grave House. A short history of the Grave family and tour of the house was provided.

Our hearth cooking crew dressed in period attire and demonstrated various aspects of Colonial Cooking. The children churned butter and made buttermilk biscuits. The biscuits were rolled, cut and then baked in a bake kettle on the hearth.

The scouts shucked dried corn in an antique husker and then made popcorn in a spider pan on the hearth.

Later they enjoyed playing with our collection of Colonial toys.
