Giving Thanks

America’s “First Thanksgiving” took place in 1621 as a celebration of the first harvest in the New World. Some of the foods which were feasted on were deer, wild fowl, and fresh fruits and vegetables. There is no official documentation that specifically lists the produce eaten, but historians say that the feast may have included plums, grapes, cranberries, pumpkin, squash, beans, and carrots. Luckily for us, the tradition of having cranberries with Thanksgiving dinner continues. If you’ve never cooked your own cranberry sauce, you simply have to give it a try. It’s so delicious! In the spirit of the first pilgrim feast,we share our favorite recipe for cranberry sauce.

We also thank you for being a part of the NFWC family and we wish you a wonderful Thanksgiving with the ones you love.
