We Give Thanks For Carrageenan – Food Republic

Rich flavors and textures come to life through many small additions, possibly a sprinkle of cinnamon, a dash of salt or maybe an ingredient that you didn’t know was there.

Thanksgiving has been a tradition across America since the 1600s, and the celebrations for the holiday have remained largely the same since then. Most of us enjoy a hearty, sit-down meal with our close friends and family and give thanks for the year we’ve had.
