Karen went into more detail: “We put it in a metal bowl and leave it in for two days and check on it. Usually, it’s frozen. Then I chip it up with my favorite knife.”
What about ice-cube trays?
“Oh, yeah. My mom bought some a few days ago.”
The Historical Society conducts the ice harvest event in conjunction with the agricultural interpretive center Farmamerica and a host of community volunteers.
This is the 10th year the event has been part of Waseca’s Sleigh & Cutter Festival.
