What Did the Pilgrims Really Eat on Thanksgiving?
If you think squash casserole and pecan tassies came over on the Mayflower, think again. Take a peek at the foods from the first Thanksgiving feast.
While we think of corn as a Fall veggie and often use it to stuff our cornucopia tablescape, in reality it's out of season and wouldn't have graced the Pilgrims' table. Instead, they'd use cornmeal to thicken this delicious pumpkin dish and a dash of sage to add flavor. That's right, friends, pumpkin belongs in more than just pie.
