It’s Thanksgiving! The word evokes family reunions, roasted turkey with stuffing, pumpkin pie and more. Giving thanks was, and still is, the primary reason for ceremonies or celebrations.
And, here we are celebrating Thanksgiving in Colonial style at the 278-year-old Miller-Cory House in Westfield, New Jersey. The women and men on the museum’s cooking committee have ingenious methods of cooking without modern devices. The equipment used is itself fascinating and each has a purpose. The oven is built into the a wall, a method of cookery used two centuries before the modern-gas or electric range. The cooking committee of the museum has also produced a small booklet with Colonial recipes.
