The 2020 Horry County Museum Documentary Film Series continues with Southern Stews: A Taste of the South.
The traditions of cooking communal stews in huge black iron pots stirred with wooden paddles has long been a way of Southern gatherings-whether at hunt clubs, church or family reunions, during holidays, or special events such as commemorating the end of harvests or to feed workers helping out at hog killing time. These stews required a number of workers, with a division of labor usually split between women and men.
