Thanksgiving Traditions


“The significators of a true New England Thanksgiving dinner were firmly established by the time of the American Revolution: the all-important turkey in place of honor, the massive chicken pie flanked by ducks, geese, and cuts of ‘butcher’s meat,’ plum pudding, bowls of vegetable and fruit ‘sass’ (sauce), and of course the pies.” – From Encyclopedia of Food and Culture.
