November 13th is National Indian Pudding Day! In keeping with a Top of JC’s Mind tradition, here is an Indian pudding themed poem for you. Enjoy!
by Joanne Corey
It’s simple –
an old family recipe
a bit of salt
butter the size of an egg
Two hours in a 300 degree oven.
But the sweetness brings memories
of Great-Aunt Gert
and generations of frugal New Englanders
making do with what they had
to fill children’s bellies with warmth.
Aunt Gert’s recipe can be found here: https://topofjcsmind.wordpress.com/2015/10/13/indian-pudding-recipe/
