Dear Carrie, thank you for a very informative article.
One of the Veterans I look after is an American called Gregg, he got married after the Second World War and stayed in England!
As I broke my ankle recently he pops in to see me quite a lot, which is kind of him.
He also likes to read articles on DG; so I showed him your article which he enjoyed, he was astonished that I had never tried cranberry sauce or Turkey, so he is going to bring some over on Thursday for me to try on your Thanksgiving Day! I have heard it is pleasant so i am looking forward to it.
In the middle ages pork was the Christmas dish in the UK, then it changed to what is now considered to be the real Christmas dish and that is Goose. Turkey was brought in and some people do eat it for Christmas dinner, I always have a Goose. That is probably why I have never tried cranberry sauce, although my wife likes cranberry juice!
It is strange for you have blueberries which I have tried and they are sweet and tasty, whereas we have bilberries (same family), that grow out on the moors.
They are small and sharp in taste and are normally used as either a jam or a sauce for game.
Gregg does not eat Turkey anymore, for he likes our ham, especially Gammon steaks, so he has Cranberry sauce with that. So I think I will try it that way as well.
Have a lovely Thanksgiving Day.
Regards from England.
