Cooking Demonstration on the Farm - "Dollars & Pennies" The New Year's Meal

Jan 4, 2018

  • Venue: L. W. Paul Living History Farm
  • Address: 2279 Harris Short Cut Road, Conway, SC 29526
  • Time: 11:00 AM to 3:00 PM

Join us on January 4th from 11:00 AM until 3:00 PM to learn about the New Year's Day meal of collard greens and hoppin' johns, also known as "Dollars and Pennies". A traditional New Year's meal on many farms would have been collard greens, dried peas, hog jowls and peas cooked in rice. Many people still carry on this tradition to represent green money and brown pennies that they hope to have more of during the upcoming year. Join us to see how this meal would have been prepared on the wood burning stove. A free, hour long tour of the farm will be available to the public at 3:00 PM following the demonstration.
