Starting where I left off yesterday in the Learning Centre, these shelves of preserved foods caught my eye.
There were also mock set-ups you would see in market places, bakeries, and other food shops.
The theme of food preservation carried on, with modern techniques examined in panels and items- freezing, freeze-dried food, and even irradiation.
Heading upstairs to the second floor, I passed by this painting of a cow.
Those preserves caught my eye. I remember my grandmother's basement on her Minnesota farm was filled with shelves of items she's preserved ... a lot of jams and jellies for sure. Love that cow! Moo!ReplyDelete
That's a very sad looking cow. I have never tried to preserve food, I suppose because I am fortunate to liveina world where food is readily available.ReplyDelete
Que maravilha, gostei de ver aqueles preparados em frascos.ReplyDelete
Um abraço e boa semana.

I think I can see guerkins on the shelf. Yummy...ReplyDelete
A few of your photos remind me of my late grandmother's pantry shelf, filled with veggies and fruits she had preserved. I like the cow art.ReplyDelete
I think we could all learn something at the Learning Center. I have never canned food...although my great grandmother certainly did.ReplyDelete
...the first shot looks like an Amish home!ReplyDelete
I love August and September. Time for preserving!ReplyDelete
Cute cow :-)ReplyDelete
@Lowell: my mother tended to make a lot of jam.ReplyDelete
@Fun60: I thought it was a rather cute looking cow.
@Francisco: thank you.
@Klara: I'll have to look up what those are.
@Mildred: I did too.
@Janey: I don't know if my grandparents did.
@Tom: it would!
@Marie: a busy time of year.
I love the bilingualism of your city, even in signs.ReplyDelete
Food preservation...a crucial part of survival. Each group has it's own tradition and method of food preservation.ReplyDelete
When I was growing up in Illinois, my grandmother's pantry looked a lot like that first photo. She canned all kinds of fruits and vegetables.ReplyDelete
Such fun exhibit! I'm sure I can learn a lot from this :-)ReplyDelete
Love the painting of cute cow!
So many shelves with preserved food, I wonder if the food is there to be eaten?ReplyDelete
A surprising finale with that cow, William !ReplyDelete
Sweet cow, Interesting looks at the pastReplyDelete
That must be a great place for school trips - so much info for the kids!ReplyDelete
@Janis: we've got bilingualism everywhere.ReplyDelete
@Red: that's true.
@Sharon: and some still do!
@Tamago: so do I.
@Marleen: I think that the jars contain mock ups, though I could be wrong. There was, however, something upstairs that was meant to be eaten, which I'll show tomorrow.
@Karl: I figured it was good to end there!
@Cloudia: thank you!
@RedPat: I imagine this place is busy throughout the school year with field trips.
This looks like a fascinating place -- and I love the cow!ReplyDelete
You find the most intriguing and informative places!ReplyDelete
