National Butterscotch Pudding Day

Today is a day for butterscotch pudding! There have been many types of puddings over the centuries, but when referring to pudding today, one is most often referring to a milk-based dessert with flavorings. It is cooked with a starch, and cooled until it is well set before being eaten. Today, "instant puddings" are commercially packaged and require no cooking. Some of the most popular pudding flavors are vanilla, chocolate, tapioca, and butterscotch. Butterscotch is a confection made with butter and brown sugar, and it may also have ingredients such as lemon, cream, vanilla, salt, and corn syrup. Recipes began appearing around 1850, but there is not a consensus as to how butterscotch originated, or how it got its name.
