THE SALCEDO KITCHEN


Immediately behind the Salcedo House
may be seen the white-stuccoed shingle -
roofed kitchen building with its large fireplace
chimney and service porch. In 18th century-
Saint Augustine the larger houses of more af-
fluent c citizens customarily had kitchens
separated from the dwelling for protection
against cooking odors, smoke, and the ever-
present fire hazard.

Uncovered by archaeological investigation.
based on a 1788 map were the wall-fbotings
and coquina fireplace hearth. On these the
'little building was reconstructed in 1965.
Currently it is used as a bakery. Bread and
pastries, following old Spanish recipes, are-
baked-daily in the big brick oven, asa .
-demonstration of a colonial craftand for sale
to visitors.


Antique and, where unavoidable, repro-
duction kitchen furniture and equipment may
" be seen: oil lamp, corn grinder, flour chest,
cupboard, pots and kettles, dishes, pitchers
-and wooden bow-operated egg-beater.

THE SMOKE HOUSE

To the north of the kitchen stands the
s mok e house with wood siding and shingles .*
weathered by age. This was a British inno-
vation, a s they preferred to smoke foods to :
preserve them whereas the Spanish used salt -
for preserving. Here a demonstration of
meat and fish smoking i s given periodically .
to re-create a phase of colonial living in
early-St. Augustine.



In the yard there are citrus, persimmon,
fig and flowering pomegranate trees a s well
as the usual small vegetable-garden behind
the kitchen.
