Maine Folklife Center Research Cited in Press Herald Blog

Research from the Maine Folklife Center at the University of Maine was cited in the latest entry of the Portland Press Herald blog, “The Root: Dispatches from Maine’s food sources.” The post, titled “The Beans of Maine,” stated according to the Maine Folklife Center’s foodways research, Maine’s Saturday bean suppers originated from the pilgrims, who would cook enough so they would not have to cook on the Sabbath. The beans cooked all day Saturday, and were eaten for dinner that night and the next morning.
