I’m sharing another riddle from “Way Down Yonder on Troublesome Creek Appalachian Riddles & Rusties” by James Still.
“It’ll bite you. But if you know its name, you’ll understand what to do the next occasion you meet.”
The last riddle I shared was from “Way Down Yonder on Troublesome Creek Appalachian Riddles & Rusties” by James Still. Most all of you got it. The answer was a turtle’s shell.
“A house without a mouse; No cat, no rat, No griddle, no fiddle, No plunder, no thunder; A house without sleepers, Crickets or neepers, Yet!
A house with a roof, And I have proof; A house that will travel—And for you to unravel.”
Come cook with me!

Date: Sunday, August 23 – Saturday, August 29, 2020

Experience the traditional Appalachian method of cooking, putting up, and preserving the bounty from nature’s garden. Receive hands-on training to make and process a variety of jellies, jams, and pickles for winter eating. You’ll also learn the importance of dessert in Appalachian culture and discover how to easily make the fanciest of traditional cakes. Completing this week of cultural foods, a day of bread making will produce biscuits and cornbread. All levels welcome.
Along with all that goodness Carolyn and I have planned a couple of field trips to allow students to see how local folks produce food for their families. The Folk School offers scholarships you can go here to find out more about them. For the rest of the class details go here.
