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.
