The Pilgrims came to Plymouth, Massachusetts in 1620 on the Mayflower. The Pilgrims brought seeds and other farming materials with them. Unfortunately, the seeds did not grow so well because of the soil. Then came the Wampanoag Indians, who wanted to help the Pilgrims farm and take care of themselves. So the Indians taught the Pilgrims to farm, fish, hunt and many more things.
Colonial Times Food was very scarce and hard to make. Took a lot of patience and effort. No refrigerators, running water, and stoves. All tools to cook were handmade. Plentiful food and resources. Cooking took less time and effort. All tools are electronic. Electronic and efficient. America (Today)
It was most of the time the mother who cooked and took care of everything around the house. Women cooked before dawn and the meals would take hours to prepare because there was no technology. The women had to go milk the cows, make the fire, bring water, grab eggs, hang meat to dry and pick vegetables. You can see what a hard job the women had back in the day. They had to take care of their kids, do housework, and cook!
