National Indian Pudding Day

National Indian Pudding Day

When : Always November 13th

National Indian Pudding Day is a day to enjoy puddings created by native American Indians.

It seems appropriate to hold this day in mid November, as we approach Thanksgiving. Native American Indians were very much a part of the first Thanksgiving feast. It is quite likely that these puddings were served, and enjoyed, at that first Thanksgiving.

American Indian puddings are defined as a number recipes of native American Indian origin. Generally, they include molasses and cornmeal. Apples were often an ingredient. They were usually baked.

Make sure to enjoy your American heritage, and a dish or bowl of Indian pudding, as you celebrate National Indian Pudding Day.

Origin of National Indian Pudding Day:
We have not yet discovered who created National Indian Pudding Day. But, we do know who created these puddings....native American Indians, of course!

We found no congressional records or presidential proclamation creating this day as a national day.

  Jello was my first introduction to puddings. I'll have to branch out into some of the others that have been suggested.

    OK. Now I have to start googling the recipe : )
Here in central BC, the First Nations make a dessert called Indian Ice Cream. It's a berry whip made with soap berries--not sure the 'real' name for the berries. The dessert looks delicious, and the first mouthful *is* delicious. Then the aftertaste hits and it's *not* delicious! Even the folks who make it admit it takes a while to get past the aftertaste. : )

    I wonder if bread pudding is in the group. One of my favorites...

And how does a day get defines, like this one, if there is no congressional or presidential action to designate it?

    Never knew it had a day of its own, but I sure do like Indian pudding! First had it as a kid at a restaurant called Smith Farm, just north of Portland, ME. The family liked it so much, I started making it. Betty Crocker's old recipe has sure gotten the us with my family - from my parents on down to my grandkids.
