Thanksgiving Recipe Roundup

Looking for ways to use local food at your Thanksgiving dinner?
Our recipe roundup has everything you need!

November 17, 2016

While many things about the first Thanksgiving are contested, one thing is certain: those that attended feasted on the the most local food possible, that of their own crops and land. Unaware of the canned cranberry sauce, mass produced turkeys, and candied yams that would one day fill the tables of future generations, the Pilgrims and Wampanoag took from their land the wild fowl, venison, Indian corn, beans, and a variety of squash that grew there.

For one nostalgic reason or another, canned cranberry sauce will continue to show up at Thanksgiving tables across the country. However, we encourage you to us our Thanksgiving recipe roundup to return to the origins of the original Thanksgiving feast by using locally grown chiltepins, sweet potatoes, teary beans, and squash to feel closer to the community you celebrate.
