Association of CT Fairs State Baking Contest Recipes

2020 was the 400th Anniversary of the Mayflower’s Voyage and Founding of Plimoth Plantation. These recipes were selected to commemorate the 400th Anniversary of the Mayflower’s Voyage and Founding of Plimoth Plantation. These recipes include ingredients such as cornmeal and molasses that would have been used in the early 1600s. For 2021 we are celebrating the First Thanksgiving. The voyage of the Mayflower took 66 days with 103 passengers aboard. Two babies were born aboard the Mayflower – Oceanus Hopkins and Peregrine White. The Mayflower Compact was written and signed by all adult male passengers. This document created a Civil Body Politik which is a foundation of the Constitution of the United States of America. Plimoth Plantation was the first permanent colony in the New World. The event that Americans commonly call the "First Thanksgiving" was celebrated by the Pilgrims after their first harvest in the New World in October 1621. This feast lasted three days, and—as recounted by attendee Edward Winslow— was attended by 90 Wampanoag and 53 Pilgrims
