Eating The Plates : A Pilgrim Book Of Food And Manners by
Lucille Recht Penner
Great book to share history with children. Eating the Plates, invites
you to learn what it was like to come across the Atlantic on the Mayflower
and settling in the New World. The book shares the experiences that the
Pilgrims had to endure from ship travel on an open vessel
to struggle of survival - choice of food, housing, disease, and bugs.
Pilgrims had a hard time finding food that they liked to eat. With the
help of the Indians, they were introduced to corn, deer and turkey. Trade
brought them spices, molasses and sugar.
The ten recipes at the end of the book are tasty and fun!
