Autumn of 1621 – The “first Thanksgiving” feast
How was the feast prepared?
This was done by Pilgrim women and children where women were the main ones doing the roasting of ducks, whilst children mainly helped by grinding corn into samp.
The great leader of the Wampanoag, commonly known as “Sachem” with a title called Massasoit is the main reason why the Pilgrims were able to survive Plimoth. The Wampanoag’s favorite dish was deer meat and as a gift to the Pilgrims, “Sachem” Massasoit commanded several men to go deer hunting for the Pilgrims.
To be honest with you, I have conducted enough research to finally dispel the notion that turkey was amongst other foods served during the first Thanksgiving feast. As a matter of fact, most of the food we serve during Thanksgiving wasn’t even invented yet. 🙂
Duck was mainly served with squash, seafood, onions, cabbage, corn and venison. As we currently celebrate Thanksgiving Day by having friends and family around one big table, this was actually not the case with the Autumn of 1621 “first Thanksgiving feast”.
How was dinner served during the “first Thanksgiving feast”?
It wasn’t as formal as we currently serve our Thanksgiving dinner, it was more casual and even eaten for almost a week throughout the colony.
Nowadays, we prepare some really fancy meals with colorful desserts which were only invented in the latest yesteryear. We even include some of the most appetizing recipes we can easily get our hands on. Which reminds of a recipe book I always use to prepare almost every meal I serve called Paleo Grubs. It contains well over 470 recipes you may also use to prepare some of the most delicious meals including meals for the next coming Thanksgiving Day.
