Video: The Surprising Origin of Thanksgiving Foods

It’s Thanksgiving week, and I’m looking forward to time spent with family and eating more than my fair share of a traditional Thanksgiving meal.

But then there’s this:

“If you time warped a few Pilgrims to your table, they’d probably accuse you of being a witch. But they’d recognize a lot of the food, just bigger, better, and tastier versions of what they ate. Many traditional Thanksgiving foods are scienced up versions of the native New World species” – Joe Janson, The Surprising Origin of Thanksgiving Foods

Check out the video below to learn about how the food we know and love is a far cry from what nature intended. Hey, if I can’t have Thanksgiving without wondering about these things, neither can you.

Have a great one!
