Happy Thanksgiving

All of us at Village Craftsmen wish you and your family a very Happy Thanksgiving!

Philip, Jude, Jean, & Mona

And we thought you might enjoy this old-time Ocracoke Island recipe for the main course at the Thanksgiving table:

Stewed Wild Goose.

  • 1/4 lb. salt pork
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 8 potatoes, halved
  • Corn dumplings or drop pastry dumplings
  • Cut-up goose
  • Salt & pepper
  • Pod of red pepper
In a large pot fry out salt pork until light brown; add flour slightly browned, and add cut-up fowl. Add salt, pepper, pod of red pepper, and enough water to cover. Cook until tender, them add potatoes and corn dumplings. Lay dumplings on top or add drop dumplings when nearly done.

-- Recipe by Mrs. Eva Williams (1892-1972)
