[FHCx318] National Indian Pudding Day

IT’S NATIONAL INDIAN PUDDING DAY!

Not created by people in India, nor even by Native Americans that were called Indians at the time. Let’s just name something Indian because it’ll be cool that way.

So you have these Northeastern settlers who want to make some pudding to remind them of home back in Britain (TMW you hate your government but want food) and didn’t have the wheat flour for it. Instead they used cornmeal, or as they called it, “Indian Meal.” Yeah, that’s right. And yet we wonder where we went wrong in this country.

We used this recipe to make our Indian Pudding today.

Whole milk with cornmeal and salt. Bring it up to a boil and whisk it for a long time.

So hot! Then turn it to low, cover it, and let it sit for 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, mix up the eggs, molasses, and spices.

What is even going on here with the milkmeal?

Take some of the hot stuff out of the pan and put it into the egg mixture to “temper” the eggs. Then put the egg mixture into the pot. It’s convoluted.

Mix it all together, then throw it in the slow cooker for 6-8 hours.

That film hides a very infirm inside.

It’s just brown goop without much texture. Kinda tasty.

Tomorrow is National Spicy Guacamole Day and National Pickle Day!
