I accompanied Andy's class a few weeks ago to Sunnybrook Farms. We came here last summer with my mom, but this experience was different because the students were included in a tour of activities, and last year we just roamed around. First stop was in the kitchen of the old homestead house to make bannock on the wood-fired stove.
We used wheat flour with lard, water, and salt, and I volunteered to cook it while our little group moved on to making butter. These were basically white man's version of tortillas.
When I caught up with the pack, they were washing socks. Then it was on to visit some of the farm animals,
milk the pretend cow, and go on a tractor ride. As they disembarked the tractor to get back on the school bus, they were served a couple pieces of bannock with butter they made. Adults got some too - pretty tasty!
