|Colonial Stewed Pumpkin Recipe (Easy)|
Here's a neat dish for Thanksgiving—based on one of the first written recipes from New England, which was published in 1672.
This modern version comes from Plimoth Plantation's cookbook Giving Thanks: Thanksgiving Recipes and History, From Pilgrims to Pumpkin Pie.
Place the squash, butter, vinegar and spices in a saucepan over low heat. Stir and heat until all of the ingredients are well combined and hot. Adjust the seasonings to your liking and serve.
