Christmas Treats: Peppernuts

by Kristine Schmucker, HCHM Curator

The sights and sounds of the Christmas season are all around us. Scrolling through our Facebook news feed this morning, I noticed that communities in Harvey County are busy with open houses and special activities. The Harvey County Historical Museum and Archives will once again participate in the Five Places of Christmas this Saturday, Dec. 7 from 10:00 - 4:00.

Refreshments, provided by The Tea Leaf Lounge, will be served at the museum.  Enjoy a Harvey House Apple Sauce Cake with a cup of Davidson's Christmas Tea while viewing the train-themed decorations. 
(A flyer with the complete list of activities is at the end of this post.)


For many families in Harvey County, peppernuts are a traditional Christmas treat. Below are three recipes for peppernuts from Arpa Wedel's Recipe Box.
