National Indian Pudding Day is a delicious holiday celebrated on November 13 in the USA! An excellent date to try the puddings that have come down to us from the native Indians. Join us to honor the centuries-old tradition of treats.
We have not found a verified source that indicates the creator of the pudding. However, it is known that this happened in North America – local Indians lived here. Dessert has reached our days! Historians say that on the first Thanksgiving Day in 1962, the dish adorned the tables of residents. During this period, recipes appeared in many cookbooks.
Over time, the recipe changed, new ingredients were added. People liked the sweeter and more airy versions more. Pudding is now one of the most popular New England dishes. It is noteworthy that in some states of America very little is known about the original performance of the pudding.
National Day is unofficial, but that doesn’t stop you from getting together with your loved ones every year and making dessert! Moreover, there is a lot of work ahead to introduce it to people who have not heard of it or have not tried it. We hope you support the idea!
5 amazing Indian Pudding facts:
- The original version does not contain excess sugar, so it is suitable for those who follow the figure. The modern version is much sweeter and more nutritious.
