Shaker Jam and Preserve Making:

The Shaker kitchen sisters were renowned for their culinary skills as much as Shaker brothers were known for their agricultural excellence. The need for large scale food preservation came as a result of the need to feed the entire Shaker community throughout the year with the abundance of the summer and fall harvest.

Enfield Shaker sister Melissa Chase wrote to Elder Henry Greene at the Alfred, Maine Shaker Village in January of 1875 to tell him of her productivity in the kitchen at Enfield Shaker Village.

Now dear brother you asked me to write you when I had finished canning my fruit, and inform you how many bottles I filled.  I have seven hundred stored away in the cellar, some are quite small, the largest hold but 2 quarts, not a great abundance but enough I think to make us quite comfortable until the harvest time comes again. 

One point I forgot to mention which may prove to you that my time is fully occupied thro’ each successive day.  Since I have been in the kitchen which is six weeks tomorrow I have made 100 and 50 gallons of sour cider sauce to sell besides giving my attention to the kitchen duties as a care sister.
