The cranberry is indeed one of the only commercially important fruits native to North America (NOT England!). The Native Americans ate the fruit and used it as medicine and probably brought cranberries to the first Thanksgiving meals http://www.apsnet.org/online/feature/cranberry/top.html

One more thing: Michael Pollan suggests you have meat as a side dish, you've just heard Jamie Oliver report over 60% of people seeking medical attention in the UK do so due to poor eating - eat less meat! eat more veg! Simple.

Rhubarb is delicious! AND it can be frozen for future use. Just wash & dry -- cut up in cubes and put in double freezer bags. Stewed rhubarb and strawberries (which can also be frozen) -- YUMMMM!

No such thing a green thumb (or fingers, as we say in UK). Knowing your plant and giving it what it needs is not having a green thumb, it's common sense!
Just like to say :: go veggie this year, we don't need turkey! Yuk!

I just heard Jaime say the British introduced North America to the cranberry. Was he joking or am I terribly mistaken? I was under the impression that cranberries originated in the Nordic region and that in North America, the Native Americans introduced cranberries to the starving British in Massachusetts. I also found it odd when after stating the British introduced Americans to cranberries, he went on to explain there are no longer cranberries in England. Not that i'm an expert on cranberries, but info on the Thanksgiving staple abounds this time of year and it would be nice if some of it were accurate.

Please ask Jamie if he has ever made Tur-duckin'. I've never had it but thinking about making it for my guest's this year.
Any tips would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks!
