Hans Herr House Snitz Fest, Willow Street,PA - Oct.1

By
Real Estate Agent with KW Elite

     Have you ever been to a Snitz Fest ? Well this Saturday I'm heading to the historic Han Herr House to participate in the annual festival. Each year's festival invites you to experience early American crafts, farm life and of course foods. I'll be sampling the dozens of traditional foods and jump into several hands-on activities. Costomed artisans will be demonstrating Pennsylvania German and Native American skills such as out door baking, scrubbing laundry with a washboard, churning butter, heckling flax and splitting shingles. Good thing there's plenty of food !

     Snitz in German means slice and to early immigrants it referred to sliced, dried apples. There will be cooking of apple mash to convert to apple butter. Various varieties of apples from the Hans Herr orchard will be available for tasting. I'm sure I'll be leaving with a number of items from the "food tent's" available offering of baked apple dumplings,apple fritters, and snitz pie ! The Hans Herr House is located just off of RT. 222 at 1849 Hans Herr Drive, Willow Street,PA 17584. For more details visit www.hansherr.org
