While you're frying up some eggs and bacon, we're cooking up something else: a way to celebrate today's food holiday.
Make haste! June 27 is National Indian Pudding Day.
If you’re not from the Northeast, you may not be familiar Indian pudding. Here’s a hint: the “Indian” the name references the Native American population.
When the British came to America, they brought with them a love of pudding. The British version, however, resembles a really moist cake. One in particular is called a "hasty pudding." This type of pudding is made from boiling flour in milk or water until it forms a mushy porridge.
Indian puddings have both sweet and savory variations, with salty meat drippings often used for the latter. For the former, the Brits use an ingredient that was in abundance in the Northeast - molasses. The result is a soft and sweet pudding perfect with a scoop of ice cream.
