Want to celebrate a Real Food Thanksgiving this year but don’t know where to find the recipes? You’ve come to the right place.
These recipes feature traditional foods that have graced Thanksgiving tables for hundreds of years: homemade bone broth, pasture-raised turkey, homemade mashed potatoes and real gravy made from scratch, pie crust made with lard and real butter.
Michael Pollan advises, “Don’t eat anything your great-great-grandmother wouldn’t recognize as food.”
So how do you do Thanksgiving when the pie crust is made with hydrogendated, rancid vegetable oil, the gravy is made from a packet, and the cranberry sauce comes out of a BPA-lined can?
