the pilgrims did. they hollowed out a pumpkin, filled it with cream and sugar, and baked it for the first thanksgiving.

In the fall of 1621, the Pilgrims and Native Americans celebrated the first Thanksgiving because this new established colony had a bountiful harvest. It was a harvest meal that featured foods, such as corn, pumpkin, nuts, cranberry, and different types of game.

There is no real evidence that there were turkeys served in the first thanksgiving. There were wild birds (may be turkey or not ) which were boiled first, then deboned and fried with butter or oil, served on top of bread. No cranberry sauce and no pumpkin pie. There was pumpkin but not in a pie.

Sara Josepha Hale, most famous for writing the nursery rhyme 'Mary Had a Little Lamb', decided that after she read a pilgrims diary that she wanted to recreate that first meal between the pilgrims and the natives. She made Thanksgiving an annual holiday in the 1880's and published recipes for Turkey, pumpkin pie, cranberry sauce and potato.

Because of the lack of the commodity sugar, I doubt it. The festival that we have now celebrates the abundance of food, while the first celebrations were about survival.

The foods served for that first meal were very different than what we typically think of as a modern Thanksgiving Feast with turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes and gravy, sweet potatoes, cranberry sauce and pumpkin pie were not served.
