In the beginning American cookery was Native American. All products were natural; fish and game were plentiful and food that was not eaten fresh was dried or smoked. Although they brought things with them from the Old World and some different cooking methods aspects changed little for over a century… or two. William Byrd in his book "Natural History of Virginia" written in 1737 described the country as "the newly discovered Eden." He described a great deal about the quality and array of fruits and vegetables that were grown: "beautiful cauliflower...very large and long asparagus of splendid flower......watermelons and fragrant melons." as well as all sorts of squash, pumpkins, beans, apples, apricots, pears, plums, quinces, cherries, walnuts and much more. In another book the History and Present State of Virginia (1705) Robert Beverley described Native American cookery in some detail. He stated that fish were so plentiful before the English settled that children could take them with pointed sticks. So, things had all ready stated to change by 1705. The Native American influence on colonial cooking can not be measured, but it gave them new foods. Corn was one of the main things that was introduced to the settlers. They were taught how to grow it, prepare it for storage, and how to cook it. The English came to love corn and added it to their regular recipes for hearth cakes, puddings, and corn meal. They found it could be used instead of ground oats. Thus, johnny cakes were born as well as other dishes using corn. Potatoes, tomatoes, peanuts, chocolate, vanilla and peppers were also introduced to the colonies. The hunting of American animals and birds was also done. Slavery also brought it's own foods and dishes to the colonial diet. Many products that are seen as "southern cooking" came from Africa or by the way of Africa and the West Indies through the slave trade. Okra, gumbo, black eyed peas, benne beans, eggplant,watermelon, and the peanut. ( Full Answer )

I've read that the early colonists ate alot of crops because they would do alot of harvasting, which they learned from the early indians. Crops such as corn,squash and many other vegtables. They also fished and hunted.
Deer, rabbits, basically anything they could find since they were starving. They hunted whatever the indians hunted
The kind of food that Maryland colonists would eat was meat fromlivestock and chickens. They would also have rice, pudding, andberries that they would gather.
The preservation of food was always a challenge. The primary ways were to dry out the item, so that there was no moisture to allow it to rot. This was done by smoking the meat, or wrapping it up in salt. Fish, beef and other meets would be stored in barrels of salt..
They used salt and then hung the meat to dry in a steakhouse for the winter.

They didn't, really. When European's began to colonize countries they attempted to control and eradicate, or assimilate, the Native Peoples. Native's were confined to "reserves", which were built on land not suitable for farming, and were restricted from basic legal rights, such as: the right to vo…te, the right to raise funds to bring land disputes to court, the right to organize politically at a National level etc. There was no "working together", mostly just oppression and domination. The legal issues and exact treatment varies from country to country (ie Canada, US, New Zealand), but in general all colonization had to suppress the existing residents in order to gain control.

The Piedmont is a plateau which begins at the fall line. The fall line is called that because it is the place where waterfalls separate the Piedmont Plateau from the Atlantic Coastal Plain.

Colonists, such as the European people who colonised the American continent, believed they had the right to settle in those lands because they were "unclaimed" by anyone else (e.g. not part of another European state). Generally speaking they did not recognise any native American countries and also c…onsidered it a divine obligation to impose the Christian religion on the "uncivilized" and "pagan" native people of America who would otherwise live damned lives of ignorance and barbarity. Of course, viewed with modern morality, the colonists had no "right" to take other peoples lands. ( Full Answer )

yes they did .Do we die by being clean no they were human beings too!
Well, they had wood fired ovens, I would imagine. Possibly stoves, and they knew how to cook over a fire. I have a feeling they were more resourceful and inventive (in some ways) than we are today. They were also much more willing (by necessity) to eat the same sorts and styles of food over and ov…er, so they hadn't much reason to know any more than they did. Really, they had no need for a microwave and neither do we, we've just invented need. Also, there is a school of thought that says microwaves could be harmful to us, so some modern folk are starting to live without them again. You could ask them how they do. Answer Microwaves have only become more common in households since the 1980s. Fire was just one way to cook. Others were drying, fermenting in vinegar, pickling or smoking foods to make them safe to eat and to store. ( Full Answer )

How were colonists able to overcome harsh weather lack of food lack of clothing and exposure to diseases?
Often times, many did not. Outside of relatively cool regions like new England, disease was too rampant for many first generation settlers, though immunity grew over time. Those that could survive naturally did all they could to create survivable conditions, and their children had an easier time liv…ing in those circumstances. If you could specify the colonized region, it would be a more specific answer ( Full Answer )
The type of food that the colonist of Virgina would eat included vegetables like corn and potatoes. They would also eat meats from the animals they killed in the forest.
From the indians and they mostly ate rice corn and wheat and whatever else the indians ate

What happened to the colonist when John white left to get food back in England during the war time Where did they go What were the native Americans tribe name?
Although no one really knows on what truly happened, but people saythat the people who fought during the war in England on 1527 thatthey went to the lost island and took and killed every colonist whowere their. More people vote for that the Native American tribe:Croatoan had taken them as hostage an…d probably ate them.
