TODAY IS PEPPER POT DAY
National Pepper Pot Day commemorates a dish that earned the nickname “the soup that won the war.” The observance takes place annually on December 29th.
The winter of 1777 – 1778 was brutal. The Continental Army was fighting for the newly formed country of the United States of America during the Revolutionary War. As they camped at Valley Forge on December 29th, 1777, George Washington asked the army’s chef to prepare a meal that would boost their morale and warm them. The chef rounded up some peppercorn, small bits of meat, tripe and other ingredients. He called it Pepper Pot Soup, also known as Philadelphia Pepper Pot Soup.The troops received the meal well, and nicknamed it “the soup that won the war.”
HOW TO OBSERVE
Experience the flavor of Pepper Pot Soup. Invite some friends to enjoy it with you and share the celebration.
