Wis. historical site to offer jam-making

Posted Tuesday, July 23, 2013 ---7:48 a.m.

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Jam and jelly lovers will get a chance to make their favorite treats the old-fashioned way at a Wisconsin historical site next month.

Wade House visitors can help historic cook Betsy Urven make jam and jelly from raspberries picked on the site's grounds. Urven will use a 19th-century recipe and seal preservation jars with brandy-soaked paper rounds and layers of tissue paper.

The event gets underway at 10 a.m. on Aug. 10 at Wade House, a 1860s stagecoach inn in Greenbush.
