They say that early American settlers of Plymouth Plantation might have made pumpkin pies (of sorts) by making stewed pumpkins or by filling a hollowed out shell with milk, honey and spices, and then baking it in hot ashes. Obviously present-day pumpkin pie with crust is a myth, as ovens to bake pies were not available in the colony at that stage.
Northeastern Native American tribes grew squash and pumpkins they ate them by roasting or boiled them for eating. Historians think that the settlers were not very impressed by the Indians’ squash and/or pumpkins until they had to survive their first harsh winter when about half of the settlers died from scurvy and exposure. The Native Americans brought pumpkins as gifts to the first settlers, and taught them the many used for the pumpkin.
