The first day of the Pioneers & Primitives Retreat at Sassafras Farm was CRAZY busy.  (Learn more about Suzanne and the farm here.)  The participants milked the cow, cut corn from cobs to make corn cob jelly, made the jelly, made lard from fatback, made taper candles, made butter, painted a “masterpiece” and learned how to make homemade vanilla flavoring.

Oh yeah, they also collected items for their homemade potpourri, learned to “burn” sugar for a cake they will make tomorrow and learned to clip chickens wings.

WOW!  When did they breathe???!!!  A very busy, busy day!  Wait till you see what we do today.
