A very unusual way to catch your Thanksgiving dinner.

For me Thanksgiving is about celebrating the foods gathered, hunted, and picked from the wild or the garden. My favorite Thanksgivings are the ones with as many foods as possible having been harvested by me or friends. When I was growing up most of our Thanksgiving food came from the grocery store. Food was just food for me in those days. Thanksgiving was a celebration of eating.
Now age has tempered my appetite, and the joy is in being together with others and celebrating the wonderful animals, plants, and berries that come from this land. These foods are rich in flavor, the colors dazzle a dull November day, and behind much of this harvested food is often a story that you just don’t get from grocery store food. This is one of mine from a couple of years ago.
