Acadian Food and Acadian Gardens. To begin with , I took the photo of the garden at Fort Louibourg ,so this would be how our ancestors probably did their planting. That is not the way I did my garden, I did mine in rows, but this way looks much easier.So the Acadians planted corn, turnips,potatoes,beans,carrots, cabbage,and their herbs. If you check out my Beaubassin Trip in my webpage at www.acadian-roots.com I have added an exert from a man who went to Beaubassin and the meal that was served to him. The acadians loved their mutton and fish. The next photo depicts a potato pancake, I ate that one at Annapolis Royal, there was a market on the saturday so my friend and I went there, when I saw the sign potato pancakes I thought they were crepe rapees , but nooooo they tasted like a fish cake sort of, they were made of cooked mashed potatoes and fried golden brown. They were tasty, but I much prefer my grated potato pancakes.
