Conway Homestead, Cramer museum bean supper, Aug 20th.

If you love history and baked beans then you might want to head to Camden and enjoy a traditional ‘Bean-hole’ supper, at the Conway house, one of the areas oldest homesteads.   So what is a bean-hole supper?

Well,  a deep hole is dug in the ground.  It s lined with stones and logs , lit,  and and  after some time there will be  a deep layer of hot embers. Then,a huge black iron cauldron filled with yellow-eye beans mixed with molasses, salt pork and a touch of cinnamon and clove onto the heat, is lowered into the hole , covered , and left to cook.  It is served with roasted pork, coleslaw and more.   Sound interesting?  Then visit Camden Sat 20 Aug to take part.  Price $10 for adults.
