Go Natural and Go Local: Heritage Turkeys

Think back to your very first impressions of Thanksgiving. What were they like? Your young mind probably formulated heartwarming images of pilgrims smiling with Native Americans over warm, delicious food that they’d harvested and cooked together. Both parties truly thankful and dressed to impress; the natives in their tribal best, and the pilgrims in those oddly buckled hats and shoes.

Now think harder, what did the turkey look like? It was beautiful, of course, and looked just like your hand that you’d traced and colored in class: a sizeable bird, wild with full plumage and deep natural colors that was just large enough to feed the small village.

Roasted Pumpkin Seeds
