Did You Know?
Long before the Pilgrims arrived in 1620, the North American Indians combined crushed cranberries with dried deer meat and melted fat to make pemmican - a food that would keep for a long time. They believed that the cranberry had medicinal properties.
As far as can be ascertained, there was no true popcorn or podcorn in the eastern New England region in 1621 or at the "First Thanksgiving". It hasn't been found archaeologically, and there isn't any New England reference to the popcorn we know today in the 17th century.
