I didn't like them, but my mother and sister had to have pickled crab apples with Thanksgiving dinner.

We had them too, both store bought and home pickled. I loved them!

That is awesome. I love memories like that! One year, my father brought home a HUGE goose that he had obtained while hunting. I remember my mother's dream of cooking a goose did not involve plucking the bird. I'm not sure if she ever got all of the feathers as she served it without skin.

Most weird - that would be last year's Thanksgiving when we had two deep fried squirrels on the table with the turkey and traditional fare...

We had deep fried our turkey that year and my husband and friend had gone squirrel hunting for the first time right before Thanksgiving. So, of course, one would think, "Why not deep fry the squirrels too??"

Ya, I didn't try it. And I opted out of taking a picture but now I wish I had :)

The two Thanksgivings I spent with a good friend were my most different ones. She and her husband didn't like turkey (Her sons would go around the neighborhood when they were kids "begging" their friends for turkey!), so she served linguini and meatballs. I couldn't stand to go without my traditional Thanksgiving meal though, so on the weekend I would make my own turkey dinner.
