When you think of Thanksgiving, it’s likely you imagine a delicious holiday buffet—a steaming hot turkey, fresh red cranberry sauce, buttery mashed potatoes, and creamy green bean casserole. These Thanksgiving essentials rule the dinner table, but aren’t complete without dessert! Have you ever wondered why your auntie’s pumpkin pie tastes so delicious? It’s because of the graham cracker crust! You might not even realize it, but graham crackers are a staple of the Thanksgiving dessert palette. They’re the perfect blend of crunchy, sweet, and savory, a complimentary ingredient of baked goods, but also the best kind of snack!
Did you know graham crackers haven’t always been as tasty as they are today? Graham crackers were originally invented in 1829 by Sylvester Graham, a Presbyterian minister. The original graham cracker was part of Sylvester’s radical vegetarian diet, meant to suppress desires for sweets and goodies. High in fiber, made of non-sifted whole wheat flower and spices, Sylvester’s belief was that behavior could be manipulated through diet.
