The First Thanksgiving Menu

2012-11-20-food_newsThe modern-day “Thanksgiving” celebration in America celebrates the first successful harvest of the Plymouth colonists in 1621.

Native Americans taught the Pilgrims to plant corn, beans, and squash together so each plant would flourish. They also served wild fowl (such as duck or goose), venison (deer), shellfish, onions, spinach, cabbage, and carrots at the first Thanksgiving.

Cultures may make the same food, but use the ingredients differently to create different tastes.  Discuss the flavors of the food you cook at Thanksgiving with your group.
