18th Century Cooking: Boiled Pudding

Ever wondered what people ate for dinner or dessert in the 1700s? Now you don’t have to! Check out this video and then try the recipe out for yourself!

You may have seen our post on vintage recipes from the ’50s, but this time we’re going even farther back…to the 1700s! Jas. Townsend & Son go back in time and show us a “simple, soldier-style pudding” that would have been common in those times. While some of the recipes from the 1950s look a little far out (we’re looking at you, jello-encased tuna roll), we think this recipe looks pretty good. What do you think? Would you eat this pudding?
