CULTURE: Thanksgiving Traditions in the South
Thanksgiving is approaching and it’s definitely a holiday ripe with southern traditions. In my opinion, this holiday just isn’t complete without a southern relish tray.
There’s something about those little nibbles set out before all the food is ready, as my grandma would say “to tide us over” until time to eat.
Of course, in a perfect world we’ve got jars and jars of home-canned pickles, relish and chow-chow to enjoy.
In my world, it’s more like store-bought but there are plenty of wonderful southern artisan offerings, including a favorite of mine, Phickles Pickles. Their pickled okra sure is tasty.
I’m sure your family has its own beloved holiday traditions but whatever they may be, I hope you enjoy yourselves!
I’m so thankful to be part of this wonderful southern community and I’m thankful for you too!
