Indian Pudding ~ Early American Recipe

Introduction

Delicious! Indian pudding is a traditional New England Thanksgiving classic. It is a baked custard named "Indian Pudding" by the early settlers because it is made with what they called "Indian meal", corn meal.

It can be traced back to the 1650s when milk became prevalent and molasses arrived on the scene courtesy of the Caribbeans who traded molasses for salt cod.
