Join Piedmont Picnic Project in this interactive workshop to learn about the history and traditions surrounding figs in North Carolina. You’ll learn several techniques for preserving figs at home, and you’ll sample homemade treats made from fig preserves. When you leave, you’ll take with you everything you need to get started with figs at home: a jar of fig jam you helped make in class, recipes for jam and for Ocracoke Fig Cake, and cuttings from the museum’s fig tree so you can grow your own!
$25 per participant; $20 for MOHA/museum members.
Support for the museum’s outdoor garden exhibit, History of the Harvest, on Bicentennial Plaza is provided, this year, by the North Carolina Sweet Potato Commission.
