Food Preservation - Not Just for Grandma Anymore!
Throughout the season guests visiting Historic Sauder Village can often see an assortment of vegetables being harvested from our gardens. Our costumed guides demonstrate a variety of food preservation techniques including drying, pickling, canning and even smoking meats. These demonstrations give our guests a unique look at the food preservation efforts of days gone by. The demonstrations vary with the season and time period in the Historic Village and recipes are often available for guests to take home.
