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.
Tomorrow is National Spicy Guacamole Day and National Pickle Day!
