Hidden Past podcast: Stirring up Thanksgiving history on Long Island - listen here
Cooking as a history lesson! With Thanksgiving fast approaching, News 12's Danielle Campbell looks back at what a colonial Thanksgiving looked like, Long Island style.
Diane Schwindt stirs up history at the Ketcham Inn in Center Moriches, using a hearth from the 1600s. She believes by cooking up history, we get a more authentic taste of Long Island's past.
She says because Long Islanders were walking distance from the water, seafood was a big part of their diet. Eel and venison were classic choices. Schwindt says historical cooking gives you a sense of how hard it was to survive, which would have made Thanksgiving back then truly a day for thanks.
