Edible History: Turnip Jack-o-Lanterns at the Rassbach Museum

The Dunn County Historical Society will be hosting a turnip carving event on Saturday, October 16th from 10am-11:30am at the Rassbach Museum.

From the Dunn County Historical Society Facebook page:

In this make-along class co-hosted by the Rassbach Museum and the Menomonie Market Food Co-op, you'll take a step back in time, before pumpkins were used to create ghoulish lights to warn away unwanted spirits during the fall season. Most often in Britain, large turnips were carved with spooky faces. We'll provide the tools and a large turnip of your own to carve and take home. While you make your Jack-o-Lantern, there will be a presentation about their long history.

Cost: $10 per person. Tickets can be found here.

Note: Project kits will be available at the Menomonie Market Food Co-op in advance. Classes at the Rassbach Museum in Menomonie's Wakanda Park.

More information can be found on their new website.
