We have an unusual episode today featuring three very special guests! The talented folks at Genesee Country Village & Museum in Mumford, NY, demonstrate for us the early 19th-century process of making bread using barm, or yeast, from the local brewery. GCV&M is a premiere historic site that we can't recommend enough. Historical interpreters Peggy Roll and Brian Nagel clearly demonstrate the important relationship between baker and brewer. In addition, interpreter Pat Mead provides excellent historical insight into the importance this western region of New York played in early wheat production. Enjoy!
