HAPPY THANKSGIVING!  Are you celebrating with a turkey feast?

Wild turkeys  (Meleagris gallapavo) were first domesticated and bred by the Aztecs and were taken  to Europe in the 16th century by Spanish invaders. They became popular in England within twenty years. We don’t know with certainty that Pilgrims ate turkey at the ‘first’ Thanksgiving, but these birds would have been familiar to colonists. It’s more likely they ate ducks, geese and swans.
Have a marvelous meal and great time feeling grateful! Cheers! The Oberon Team.
