Is there a food or recipe you are very familiar with (perhaps born and raised with it) that no one outside you or your family has ever heard of before? Please list it and describe it.
My contribution is Black John Pudding. It’s a coffee/molasses-based flat cake served with a butter/egg/sugar sauce. It is a family favorite. I don’t know anyone outside of my father’s side of the family who has ever heard of it. I find no mention of it by this name in any Web search nor in any cookbook. Of course, it’s quite possible one of my relatives just came up with it as a variation to another pudding recipe. Who knows?
So, do you have any foods/recipes that are second nature to you but almost no else has heard of?
