The pantry can be seen through the doorway. It was a storehouse for many kinds of food. There were jars which contained: Preserved fruits and berries; pickled vegetables and meats; lard with bacon slices; vegetables (corn, beans, okra, etc.), nuts, coffee, tea, flour, salt, sugars, pork stored in barrels or brine and wine barrels. Cane syrup was made from evaporating sugar cane juice.
