Happy Thanksgiving

If you are still planning your Thanksgiving meal or want to change it up and try something new the Fall Issue of The Biblical Herbal has two herbal recipes for you to try. Sara Davis and I (Tamra Speakman) joined together in the Culinary Herbal Column to share with you an herbed turkey recipe and an herbed challah recipe. 

Thanksgiving and The Feast Of Tabernacles

Before sharing my Herbed turkey recipe with you I briefly explain a link between Thanksgiving and Sukkot. Here is an excerpt from that article. 

"Like the Feast of Tabernacles, the American holiday of Thanksgiving is a time of giving thanks to God. Both Sukkot (Feast of Tabernacles) and Thanksgiving are celebrated in the fall and were originally based on the harvest. Some authors actually believe the first Thanksgiving was mirrored after the Holy day of Sukkot."

Sara Davis of Ol' Farmhouse Products  has written a wonderful challah bread recipe to go right along with your turkey. Sara shares about the richness and meaning of challah in her article. Below is an excerpt from her article. 
"During the holidays, we like to celebrate richly! Which means different foods than usual, richer recipes, and a lot more of it! This is an important reason for including plenty of herbs that aid in digestion. The following recipe contains several of these handy herbs, both for flavor and for their wonderful benefits."
