    Default interesting on topic

    last night i was listening to some old time radio, the show was "my favorite
    Husband" lucy ball and some others if you are old enough you would know...
    it was of course a show about baseball, and was done in september of 1949.
    There were several commercials for jello pudding, touting the wonders of
    quick cooking prepared puddings... then the recipe...
    1 prepared and bake pie shell.
    1 box of butterscotch pudding prepared according to the directins.
    2 cups of canned and drained peaches.

    bake shell then place peaches in bottom of shell, then pour over warm
    pudding, chill and serve...

    I guess this business of using packaged things has been going on a lot
    longer than i thought.

    I know it defined the '50s. Commercial frozen foods, like Swanson's
    TV Dinners were introduced then too.

    I am fond of the instant vanilla pudding, 'nilla wafers & sliced
    bananas, topped with freshly whiped cream and i vaguely recall me mum
    using butterscotch pudding in the same way, but not familiar with using
    peaches, however i occasionally purchase an Asian cake mix that uses the
    canned peaches, place on top and bottom of the cake pan, so i end up
    with a rice flour cake with peaches on the bottom and top.

    There was a Roman Emperor who dined on frozen mastodon in the 100's c.e.
    (iirc) dug up in the far northern high mountains and frozen for
    thousands of years. Solzhenitsy talks about something similar in his
    "Gulag Archipelago" an event in the gulag in the 1920's or 30's iirc

    I remember from my childhood - Bake a pie shell then pour in Jello
    chocolate pudding (the kind you cook, not instant). And...chocolate pie once
    it cools. I still make this occasionally.

    Jeffrey Steingarten searched for the earliest back-of-the-box recipe.
    He found a recipe from 1802 for macaroni and cheese printed on a
    sheet of paper used to wrap bundles of dried pasta.

    It's a very interesting article -- "Back of the Box" from The Man Who
    Ate Everything.

    No, REAL Southern banana pudding is baked with a meringue on top. The type
    with whipped cream is a Yankee bastardization. If you use instant pudding to
    make the concoction described above, then calling it "banana pudding"
    identifies you as incestuous trailer trash ("but hey, if you like it, go for
    it!")

    Alton Brown gives good recipes for each type:

    http://www.foodnetwork.com/good-eats...ing/index.html

    Note that neither recipe calls for instant pudding. That would be because
    instant pudding is revolting ****.

    and the bananas have to be the correct stage of ripeness.....too green
    and they don't have much flavor, too ripe and they turn brown in the
    pudding, or black around the edges...blech.

    Good Southern 'nanner puddin' is a miracle of creamy goodness and
    vanilla wafery treatness. It was a great treat as a child and I
    haven't made one for years.
