Fresh Fruit

Pennsylvania Senator William Maclay described an August 1789 meal with the President and First Lady to include “…iced creams Jellies &ca, then Water Melons Musk Melons apples peaches nuts”


Fresh fruit still has popular today at a summer party, especially with kids. A cool, juicy slice of melon is the perfect compliment to a hot burger or rich ice cream. I have a generous neighbor with a gorgeous, blooming apple tree. So, just like at Mount Vernon, I got to serve apples straight from the orchard!
