Hunter’s Home to Host Hominy-Making Workshop

PARK HILL, Okla. — Hunter’s Home will host a hominy-making workshop on Saturday, March 23, from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Hominy was a staple in the 19th-century diet because corn was widely available. Processing it into hominy boosted the nutritional value, acted as a preservation method and made for a delicious meal.

Participants will learn to make hominy in three different ways. They will also get to sample pork and hominy.

The workshop costs $20 for Oklahoma Historical Society members and $25 for nonmembers. There are limited spots available for this workshop. Call 918-456-2751 to register. Advanced registration is required, and the payment is non-refundable.

The workshop will include various food items, including grain, corn and mammal products. If you have questions about specific allergens, call 918-456-2751 or email huntershome@history.ok.gov. Hunter’s Home is located at 19479 E. Murrell Home Rd. in Park Hill. It is Oklahoma’s only remaining pre-Civil War plantation home.
