1 PM Apple Cider Press — Dyckman Farmhouse Museum Alliance Board President, Don Rice, will take you through a demonstration of how an apple cider press works using the Dyckman apples from Boscobel House and Gardens. This classic American drink was the most popular beverage of the colonial period, because pressing and fermenting apple juice was the easiest way to preserve the large fruit harvest.

2 PM Apple Madness — Are you ready to make some apple cider at home? Don’t have a cider press? Join Fabiola in the Garden Kitchen Lab kitchen at Dyckman Farmhouse Museum to find out an easy way to make this special treat. (RECIPE HERE) Want an apple dessert to go with your cider?

‘The History of Ice Cream in New York City’ Morris-Jumel Mansion Webinar

I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream! From satisfying the sweet tooth of our first Commander in Chief to its role during Prohibition, ice cream and America go hand-in-cone — especially when it comes to New York City. Are you ready for the inside scoop on one of America’s favorite desserts and how it took the country, and New York City, for a churn?

To Register: https://www.nyadventureclub.com/event/the-history-of-ice-cream-in-new-york-city-webinar-registration-120021789403/

Join New York Adventure Club as we explore New York City’s extensive role in the history of ice cream, and the ways in which this sweet treat evolved from a delicacy for the wealthy in colonial America into a staple of American culture.

Led by Educator Meg Lynch from the Morris-Jumel Mansion — Manhattan’s oldest residence and site of George Washington’s 1790 cabinet dinner — our virtual experience surrounding this creamy confection will include:
– Ice cream in early America, including different recipes, ice cream making processes, and fun facts about past U.S. Presidents who enjoyed the delicacy
– New York City’s role in the story of ice cream, from the site of the first American ice cream parlor to commercializing the summer treat
– Improvements in technology and transportation that allowed the ice cream industry to grow
– NYC and ice cream today, from famous brands with New York origins to the evolution of dairy-free ice cream
– A DIY ice cream making demonstration, which you can follow along with (see the simple list of ingredients below)
Afterward, we’ll have a Q&A with Meg — any and all questions about ice cream in New York City are welcomed and encouraged!
