Description:
Background about the traditional Thanksgiving dish pumpkin pie. "Early American settlers of Plimoth Plantation (1620-1692) ... might have made pumpkin pies (of sorts) by making stewed pumpkins or by filling a hollowed out shell with milk, honey and spices, and then baking it in hot ashes. An actual present-day pumpkin pie with crust is a myth, as ovens to bake pies were not available in the colony at that stage." Includes recipes. From a cookbook author.
