Our family roots in this country go back to 1627 New England. When we visited Colonial Williamsburg some years ago, we fell in love with their inns and old recipes. We decided to change our Thanksgiving menu to include many of these recipes and to reflect our ancestors reliance on both the land and the sea. When my children were younger, I tried to make things as much "from scratch" as possible, including picking the apples at an apple farm and the pumpkins from a pumpkin patch. We cooked all day, all together for at least a week! Now we just keep all the same recipes using some modern shortcuts; but the memories are all the same ... and you better not leave out any dishes.
