Example text

Mrs. N. K. M. Lee copied Child’s recipe for boiled Indian pudding almost verbatim, though she restored the eggs and the (brown) sugar option to baked Indian pudding, which she said required a mere half hour (versus Child’s three or four hours) in a Dutch oven. 40 Two writers of the s, perhaps following the Philadelphia authority Eliza Leslie rather than Child, mentioned lemon juice or grated peel for flavoring. One of these writers proposed eating her ‘‘Rich Boiled Indian Pudding . . ’’ Such indulgence was certainly far removed from a Child-like frugality.

109 It is fitting to conclude this discussion with one of Hazard’s reveries. In the s the determinedly gourmandizing Mrs. N. K. M. Lee, perhaps in a reprise of the colonial denial of Indian contributions to the American diet, had included in her (purported) ‘‘Complete Culinary Encyclopedia’’ not one single form or name of Johnny cake or corn bread. Half a century later, the determinedly mythologizing Hazard placed this plebeian dish at the heart of traditional New England life, while at the same time only minimally acknowledging any indebtedness to Indian cuisine and culture.
