A colonial English woman prepares pompion (pumpkin) by the fireside at the Plimoth Plantation in Plymouth, Mass. The pumpkin would have been stewed. It was a staple, along with squash, of the Pilgrims and the Wampanoag tribe, and likely would have part of the Thanksgiving feast for 150 at the settlement in 1621.
