Three Sisters

Today is an important day. Thanksgiving is the celebration of our country's freedom from religious tyranny in England. It is also a day of sadness for many. The genocide of countless native people occurred and cannot be ignored. As we eat our turkey and give thanks for the many incredible blessings, I hope we all will remember the history of this day.

We wanted to share with you a recipe that is traditional for the Alabamee Indian Tribe, who lived in what is now...
