    Thanksgiving Cookbooks and Recipes


    Thanksgiving Turkey Thanksgiving is a traditional North American holiday which is associated with harvest.
    • In Canada, Thanksgiving is celebrated on the second Monday in October, but is celebrated as part of a three day weekend.

    • In the United States, Thanksgiving is celebrated on the fourth Thursday in November. Although the earliest Thanksgiving celebrations were probably held by Spanish settlers in the 16th century in what is today Florida and Texas, the holiday has come to be associated with the Pilgrims and their settlement in Plymouth, Massachusetts, and their Thanksgiving feast held in 1621.
    Some Thanksgiving recipes and dishes include:
    • Cornbread - A fried quick bread made from cornmeal.

    • Corn on the cob

    • Green bean casserole - A casserole made from green beans, cream of mushroom soup (the canned variety is usually used), and fried onions.

    • Mashed potatoes

    • Pecan pie - This is a Southern recipe eaten as a dessert. It is a pie containing a custard made of corn syrup and pecan nuts. Bourbon whiskey or chocolate are also sometimes added to the custard.

    • Pumpkin pie - This is a pie that is eaten for dessert. The pie crust is filled with a custard made from pumpkin with various spices such as cloves, cinnamon and ginger. Traditionally served accompanied with whipped cream, pumpkin pie is often eaten at Thankgiving, as well as at Christmas, and Halloween.

    • Sweet potato

    • Sweet potato pie - An open pie eaten as a dessert. It contains mashed sweet potatoes, eggs, milk and sugar, and is flavored with spices such as cinnamon or nutmeg.

    • Turkey - Turkey is the most common main dish eaten for Thanksgiving dinner. Turkeys are usually stuffed with a stuffing made from cereal, carrots, celery, onions and flavored with sage, and then roasted.

    Product Description:
    NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY EATER.COM

    From one of America’s finest food writers, the former restaurant critic for The New York Times, comes a definitive, timeless guide to Thanksgiving dinner—preparing it, surviving it, and pulling it off in style.
     
    From the planning of the meal to the washing of the last plate, Thanksgiving poses more—and more vexing—problems for the home cook than any other holiday. In this smartly written, beautifully illustrated, recipe-filled book, Sam Sifton, the Times’s resident Thanksgiving expert, delivers a message of great comfort and solace: There is no need for fear. You can cook a great meal on Thanksgiving. You can have a great time.
     
    With simple, fool-proof recipes for classic Thanksgiving staples, as well as new takes on old standbys, this book will show you that the fourth Thursday of November does not have to be a day of kitchen stress and family drama, of dry stuffing and sad, cratered pies. You can make a better turkey than anyone has ever served you in your life, and you can serve it with gravy that is not lumpy or bland but a salty balm, rich in flavor, that transforms all it touches. Here are recipes for exciting side dishes and robust pies and festive cocktails, instructions for setting the table and setting the mood, as well as cooking techniques and menu ideas that will serve you all year long, whenever you are throwing a big party. Written for novice and experienced cooks alike, Thanksgiving: How to Cook It Well is your guide to making Thanksgiving the best holiday of the year. It is not fantasy. If you prepare, it will happen. And this book will show you how.

    Advance praise for Thanksgiving
     
    “If you don’t have Thanksgiving, you are not really having Thanksgiving. This book is as essential to the day as the turkey itself. It’s an expert, gently opinionated guide to everything from the cranberry sauce to the table setting to the divvying up of the leftovers, but it’s also a paean to the holiday and an evocation of both its past and its promising future. Sam Sifton’s Thanksgiving world is the one I want to live in.”—Gabrielle Hamilton, bestselling author of Blood, Bones, & Butter
     
    “The charm of Sam Sifton’s Thanksgiving is that he proposes that home cooks treat this culinary Olympics like any other dinner party—don’t panic, deconstruct your tasks into bite-size pieces, and conquer that fear of failure. Sam could talk a fledgling doctor through his first open-heart surgery. It’s all here—from brining to spatchcocking, sides to desserts—and served up with a generous dollop of reassuring advice from one of America’s most notable food writers.”—Christopher Kimball, editor of Cook’s Illustrated and host of America’s Test Kitchen

    • Historical Thanksgiving Cooking and Baking
    Product Description:
    The first Thanksgiving was observed on American soil in 1621, “after the harvest was gotten in.” It was celebrated by the surviving members of the little Plymouth colony who at that time numbered only 51 and 90 Indians, who were unexpected, but welcome guests. The menu consisted of such things as clams, eels, and mussels from the sea, venison and duck from the surrounding forests, leeks and plums and plenty of corn bread from the ovens of the homemakers. There was no pumpkin pie or mince pie at this time. Not until the year 1636 was there a Thanksgiving Day as we have come to know it now. Church services were then held in the morning. A feast in every home that could afford one, “with the poorer sort being invited of the richer” followed this. As time passed, Thanksgiving, celebrated on the first Thursday in November, became a much more important traditional holiday and annual social event in New England life. Pumpkin pie was the most popular item added to festivities to go along with the wild turkey, venison, fruits and vegetables of the Puritan’s first harvest feast. It was later moved to the second Thursday in November in 1705 because of a problem encountered in Colchester, Connecticut. It seems that the town’s supply of molasses had not arrived in time for the local homemakers to make their Thanksgiving pumpkin pies. Another new table delicacy was introduced at the Thanksgiving festivities in 1779. The unusual food was celery. A young woman living in Massachusetts in writing a letter about the feast had this to say: “ … there was one (vegetable) which I do not believe you have yet seen. It is called selery and you can eat it without cooking.” The popular Thanksgiving tradition quickly spread throughout the colonies. On October 3, 1789, George Washington as President of the new United States, issued a NATIONAL DAY OF THANKSGIVING PROCLAMATION making Thanksgiving an official holiday to be held all over the country. It wasn’t until January 1, 1795, that President Washington officially issued another NATIONAL THANKSGIVING PROCLAMATION. It began thusly: “It is in an especial manner our duty as a people, with devout reverence and affectionate gratitude, to acknowledge our many and great obligations to Almighty God, and to implore Him to continue and confirm the blessings we experienced.” He further recommended “all religious societies and denominations, and to all persons whomsoever within the United States, to set apart and observe” this special holiday as “a day of public thanksgiving and prayer.” Despite this action by the President, annual Thanksgiving festivities were still observed almost exclusively throughout New England for many years. The tradition gradually spread to the new southern and western states over a period of time. In 1798 and 1799, John Adams was to call for two Thanksgiving observances during his four year term of office as President. Jefferson, Monroe, Jackson, Van Buren, Polk, Pierce and Buchanan – all Presidents who followed – ignored the national significance of Thanksgiving Day. Then came Abraham Lincoln. In 1863, a year when our country was in the throes of a bloody Civil War, this man was to come forth with one of the most famous of all Thanksgiving proclamations. He officially made the standard date to celebrate as the last Thursday in November “as a day of Thanksgiving and Praise to our beneficent Father who dwelleth in the heavens … It has seemed to me fit and proper that God should be solemnly, reverently and gratefully acknowledged, as with one heart and one voice, by the whole American people.”
