To Minnesota With Love: The History of Black Pepper

Christina Macgillivray's production company takes her all over the world, but her heart is firmly rooted in Minnesota, especially the North Shore. Her feature, "To Minnesota with Love," is her audio postcard to all of us from her international travels.

In this episode, she connects the dots between the black pepper on your Thanksgiving table, to the rich history of the early spice trade and the connection between pepper, red chiles and the travels of Christopher Columbus.
