Canada.

Shorter summers = earlier harvest festivals.

That reason makes sense. I wondered why the different date; I always just assumed it was Canada being Canada.

But thanks for ruining my ugly American joke with facts. ;)

It’s a separatist conspiracy. The date was set by Papineau.

Trump should be pardoned by a turkey this year instead of the opposite. :lol:

Looking up Thanksgiving history/traditions in USA and Canada, I see that taking walks is a popular Thanksgiving pastime in Canada. Is the food prep done the day before? Or is the walk =just for the people not cooking?

Our family does it on Black Friday. Much better option than shopping. We do the same on Christmas day. We pick out the hike location based on the weather conditions. If there is wet grounds or snow, etc, we'll go for a more flat terrain.
I especially like dining on leftovers afterwards.

Seems the same foods are enjoyed.
We have certain restrictions on the Thanksgiving meal we put on due to my in-laws (Kosher). Personally I would favor more shellfish and proper mashed potatoes (dairy a must).

I still want to attempt to make hasselback potatoes, but Thanksgiving isn't when i would want them. Not sure what i'm doing yet.

Last year, I tried to bake a ham in a crock pot.

That will never happen again ...

For xmas my friend and I made a tukrducken. I can't wait to make another, and Thanksgiving is probably the first good excuse. I think we'll probably skip the chicken this time though and just stick to the turkey and duck.

It’s funny, I didn’t realize this was a common thing, but we do it too. We had an early”ish” dinner and then went for a walk afterwards.

My sister did that. Aside from the fact that it had the consistency of pulled pork it was delicious.

If it had the consistency of pulled pork, then it was pulled pork.

Not if you're careful when you cut it and serve it.

And pulled pork here is spicy while ham is pineapple sweet.

Both can be however you want them to taste. Ham should be bone in on a platter to be sliced. Not in a crock pot.

Well you can't cook meat on a platter and the oven was occupied. It still tasted good, even if we didn't make the pineapple gravy for the potatoes.

I didn't say you cook it on a platter. Or that was implied. Trust me. I can do few things well. Cooking a ham is something i do very very well.

OK, you opened that door ...

How do you cook a ham, justine?

It's really quite simple. Bone in. Prep is covering it with whole cloves spaced about 1/2" apart. Mix a baste of water, brown sugar and ground cloves, (about a cereal bowl full) and baste before putting in the oven. Cook it at 350 in about 3 or 4" of water. Baste again after about 45 minutes or an hour and repeat til done, about 3 hours. After your baste is all gone, use the water in the pan. You will probably have to add water at least once.
