Forget the everything pumpkin spice, in the 18th century it was all about the apple! On November 10th from 7-9 pm at the Chadds Ford Historical Society’s Barns-Brinton House tavern, come sample and learn about the Colonists’ favorite fruit: the apple.
Some of our featured stations for the night include seasonal wine and cider samples from Chaddsford Winery, interactive cider-making demonstrations with Delaware’s Civil Cider, and apple variety samples with Indian Orchards. Guests will also learn about apple-related lore and taste a variety of 18th century apple recipes. At the end of the evening, you’ll forget pumpkin spice ever existed!
