Thanksgiving means great food in large quantities. But it also means that no matter what your caloric intake at dinner, room is always saved for dessert. And dessert on Thanksgiving Day means pie. Whether you desire pumpkin, apple, pecan or cherry, there’s always room for a slice with or without whipped cream. King Arthur Flour Chef Susan Reid shares expert tips on making the perfect pie.
Also on the program we go for a walk in the woods with Mary Holland, author of "Naturally Curious: A Photographic Field Guide and Month-by-Month Journey Through the Fields, Woods, and Marshes of New England." Holland, a naturalist and photographer, says there’s plenty to see in the wilderness all year round–even during stick season!
And we hear from VPR listeners about why they’re thankful this year.
