Have you ever wondered what an old-fashioned, 19th-century, British-traditioned Yankee Thanksgiving was like? In the land of the original Pilgrims, did they really eat turkey? This episode draws on recipes from a November, 1895 issue of The Boston Globe and in it we'll explore recipes that go all the way back to the 16th century in England. We'll also learn whether mince pies really contain minced meat, whether there are plums in plum pudding, and we'll see by comparison to a menu from El Paso, Texas in 1908 that there were similarities and marked distinctions between two very different regions of the country by the time a century or so had passed since the United States' first Federal Census. There's also a new section in the podcast this and every episode - The Genie News - and some of that news is about some developments in the Facebook group and its new connection to Patreon support! Enjoy a turkey sandwich as you listen in. PS; THE PODCAST IS NOW ON IHEARTRADIO!!!
