I don’t have a history of why Christmas came to be also celebrated as National Pumpkin Pie day.With so many of these food holidays we find a food “manufacturing” company or food marketing company involved in it’s origin to increase sales.  As for National Pumpkin Pie Day falling on Christmas the obvious reason seems to be that it is the day, second to Thanksgiving, when the most pumpkin pies are consumed!

Try our Classic Pumpkin Pie Recipe or our Easy Holiday Pumpkin Pie Recipe

The first printed reference to pumpkin pie is in 1651 when French chef Francois Pierre de la Varenne published a cookbook that featured a recipe for outré of Pumpkin, that is, pumpkin pie.  Recipes for pumpkin pie began to appear in English cookbooks by 1670. 

However, we find beginnings to it earlier when the Pilgrims arrived at Plymouth Rock in 1620 the began to make a pumpkin custard of milk, honey, pumpkin and spices.  This led to serving the first “pumpkin pie” on November 1621, when the Pilgrims and the Wampanoag Indians gathered at Plymouth for an autumn harvest celebration, an event regarded as America’s “first Thanksgiving.”

I should clarify that this pumpkin pie wasn’t quite a pie.  The pilgrims lacked the butter and flour necessary for making pie crust. They also didn’t have ovens yet. They improvised by hollowing out pumpkins, filling the shells with milk, honey and spices to make a custard, then roasting the gourds whole in hot ashes.

Over a century later the pumpkin pie really took off when Amelia Simmons published American Cookery.  It contained a recipe for pumpkin pudding baked in a crust, much like the pumpkin pie we enjoy today.

The pumpkin pie has come a long way since it’s humble beginning at Plymouth Rock.  It would be difficult to find a holiday table without the delicious dessert.

Eggnog

I thought it might be fun to know the history of eggnog tor the conversation while you are sipping on some of the delicious holiday treat with your family at Christmas.

I should have put this post up earlier, but Christmas isn’t for a few days yet. 

Merriam Webster dictionary says the first known use of the word eggnog was in 1775.  That would leave some to believe the rich drink originated in America.  George Washington also had a recipe that was loaded with alcohol (see the recipe below) but the drink originated in Europe. 

There are variations of the history, but the most likely one is that it originated with the medieval monks during the Thirteenth century in England.  They drank a warm ale punch with eggs and figs known a posset. 

The affluent or high society of the 17th Century used sherry instead of ale.  They toasted to their future prosperity with what was at that time considered a luxury beverage due to the high price of sherry and dairy products at the time.

When eggnog arrived in America, rum became the alcohol of choice in the beverage.  Shipped from the Caribbean it was cheaper than liquors that were imported from Britain. 

The basic recipe has remained the same.  Eggs beaten with sugar, milk, cream and some form of alcohol.  But there are a number of variations.

In Puerto Rico coconut milk was used and later the eggs were omitted.  Since they couldn’t very call it eggnog without any eggs, they named it coquito. 

In Mexico they have a variation of eggnog called rompope.  It basically adds Mexican cinnamon and vanilla to it and uses either rum or grain alcohol.  I say don’t use the grain alcohol unless your only objective is to get bombed.  It is very high in alcohol and adds nothing to the flavor.

Whatever you do, skip the supermarket eggnog.  It is so far from the real deal that it shouldn’t even be called eggnog.  You might want to create your own variation of eggnog and start your own family tradition! You can take our holiday eggnog recipe and make your own special version.  Or you can start with the alcohol laden version of George Washington’s Eggnog Recipe and make it your own.

December 27th is National Fruitcake Day.  It’s said to be a day for the lovers of fruitcake.  The problem is that there are no lovers of fruitcake!  In fact the fruitcake is so abhorred that television personality Johnny Carson once said, “There is only one fruitcake in the entire world and people just keep sending it to each other.”

I personally believe the only reason people bake fruitcakes is so they will have it available for National Fruitcake Toss Day

Apparently the fruitcake dates back to the ancient Egyptians who placed fruitcake on the tombs of loved ones.  It was suppose to be food for their journey to the hereafter, but I’m certain archeologists have found when they opened some of these tombs that the fruitcake was both untouched, and the most well preserved thing in the tomb!

They became more common in Roman times when soldiers brought them to the battlefield with them.  The reference doesn’t state whether that was to eat them, or to launch them from their catapults to slaughter the enemy.

Somehow fruitcakes survived the centuries and in the early 18th century the boozy sugary fruitcake became associated with decadence and was outlawed as being “sinfully rich.”  (Truth).  I guess know we now know where that expression came from!

Unfortunately, the law banning fruitcake was repealed.

For the longest time I never understood the widespread dislike of fruitcakes.  It was because I didn’t know what they were.  My grandma used to make the most delicious boiled raisin cake.  I thought since raisins were fruit that it was a fruitcake.  Then in my adult life I tasted a real fruitcake  Later I tasted another or two.  I came to realize that they came in two varieties.  Bad and terrible!

My advice is that unless you really need to have something on hand for National Fruitcake Toss Day that you skip the traditional fruitcake and go with one that tastes good instead.  Unfortunately I don’t have the recipe for my grandma’s boiled raisin cake, but I can recommend a better alternative.

It’s called Stollen.  Stollen is a traditional German bread usually eaten during the Christmas season, when it is called Weihnachtsstollen (after “Weihnachten”, the German word for Christmas) or Christstollen (after Christ).

Stollen is a yeast bread, not a cake.  Stollen dough is low in sugar and the bread is smothered in butter and rolled in sugar as soon as it comes out of the oven.  The only resemblance to fruitcake is that it contains dried fruits and nuts such as candied orange peel, raisin, almonds and such.  

Unless you are a pastry chef, I don’t recommend making your own Stollen. The recipes are fairly complicated .  You can find them at Cost Plus this time of year, or order one from Amazon.  Give it a try.  You’ll never have to participate in National Fruitcake Toss Day again!

December 26th is National Candy Cane Day and there are a number of explanations as to where it originated. So many that I feel a lot of people simply wanted to create a tale that suited their purposes surrounding the candy.

Many of the stories on the birth of the candy cane give it Christian heritage, None of these are completely verified, but the Candy Cane does seem to be the Christmas candy most closely associated with Christmas.

The origin seems to be in 17th century Germany where the choirmaster at the Cologne Cathedral handed them out to the youngest singers to keep them quiet during the long passages when others were singing.  It’s said they were bent in their shape to represent the shepherds’ crooks or canes.  Another legend says they were invented in Indiana and bent in their cane shape to represent the letter J for Jesus.  According to that version the color white represented the purity of the Virgin Mary and the red the blood of Christ.

However the red an white color didn’t take hold until the turn of the Twentieth Century.  Bending the candy canes into the J shape remained a problem until the 1950’s when Gregory Keller, a Catholic priest, invented a machine that automated the production and bending of candy canes.

Candy Canes first appeared on a Christmas tree in 1847 when August Imgard, a German immigrant decorated a blue spruce tree in Ohio with paper ornaments and candy canes.

December 22nd is National Cookie Exchange Day.  I couldn’t find any information as the the origin of National Cookie Exchange Day, but I suspect it is just a matter of tradition with possibly a little help fro the food industry as is so often the case in the food holidays.

I think it would be more appropriate if it was called National Delicious Food Exchange Day.  As far back as I can remember friends and family in my circle have been giving each other gifts of food as Christmas rolls near.  We look forward to the giving.  It brings friends and family closer together.  It says you care and that someone cares about you.

So what are you waiting for.  Bake up a few batches of cookies and share the love. Use it as an excuse to drop in and see old friends.  Bring some into the office for your co-workers to brighten their day.  Throw a cookie exchange party.

If you don’t have time to bake, then consider ordering some Christmas cookies from Amazon using the ad/search box below.

If you do plan to bake your own, here are some of our favorite cookie recipes.

Gourmet Turtle Cookies Recipe (pictured at the top) will become a holiday tradition once your friends and family have tried them once!

November and December are months where delicious foods and baking take center stage.  Thus it should come as no surprise that we would celebrate National Cookie Day on December 4th.

Evidently the cookie came to the United States through the Dutch settlers in the late 1620s.  They called them koekje which was Anglicized to cookie.  Cookies go by different names in other countries.  In the UK they’re called biscuits.  In Spain they’re called gullets.

Cookies seem to have gained popularity out of convenience.  The hard biscuits traveled well and provided nutrition for early travelers.  They also tended to be more nutritious in early years.

I could go into quite a bit about the history of cookies, but I recommend you just bake some up and enjoy!  Here are some great cookie recipes to try out!

Ice Cream is sure a hit on the National Food Holidays Calendar. It makes at least three appearances that I know of.  This post is to commemorate National Ice Cream Day that is celebrated each year on December 13th.

If you missed it, don’t fret.  February 2nd is National Eat Ice Cream for Breakfast Day.  It’s probably not the most healthy way to start your day, but the story of how it got started is fascinating.  It’s one of the few true grassroots National food holidays.

The official National Ice Cream Day occurs during National Ice Cream Month which occurs in July.  It came to be by an official resolution of Congress in 1984 that President Reagan signed into law on July 9, 1984.  The resolution also proclaimed July 15th as National Ice Cream Day.  The resolution only proclaimed the holiday for 1984, but the dairy industry did its part to keep the tradition going.

Ice cream date back farther than you would imagine.  Different reports credit different sources. Some say it was the Chinese that created it as early as 3000 BC.  Others report that a Roman Emperor send servants to the mountains to get snow and mix it with fruit and berries to create an ice cream.

Today, New Zealand, the United States and Australia are the biggest ice cream consumers.  And as you know there are hundreds of flavors!

We recommend you celebrate National Ice Cream Day by bringing back and old tradition.  Make your own ice cream!  The basic ingredients are just eggs, milk, cream, sugar and some fruit or flavorings of your choice.  Ice cream makers are economical and fun to use.  They also usually come with handy ice cream recipe books.

December 15th is National Cupcake Day

As far as we can discover, cupcakes date back to the 1700s.  Back then they were more like what are known as English Fairy Cakes today. 

Fairy cakes are different than cupcakes in that they tend to be smaller and the icing is drizzled on them in smaller amounts.  By comparison, cupcakes tend to be piled high with buttercream frostings.

Hostess was the first to start mass producing cupcakes, back in 1919.  And apparently we have Winston Churchill to thank for the idea that cupcakes should be frosted.  Prior to that they were apparently made using dried fruits ranter than frosted.

Of course the thing to do on National Cupcake Day is to bake cupcakes, or go to a bakery and get one. 

Here are some great cupcake recipes to help you celebrate:

Orange Cupcakes with Orange Buttercream Frosting 

Tiramisu Cupcake with Mascarpone Frosting 

Pumpkin Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting 

Pecan Pie Cupcakes 

Chocolate Christmas Cupcakes

pop tartsWe’ve all heard the saying. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day.  Most of us believe it, but none of us have ever questioned the origin of the expression. We just assume it’s true because “everybody knows” that!

Now we’re going to bust a myth.  The saying Breakfast is the Most Important Meal of the Day was coined by a company famous for it’s over-processed, nutritionally bankrupt sugary breakfast foods.  Can anyone say Pop Tarts?

The expression was coined in the 19th century by Caleb Jackson and John Harvey Kellogg to sell their newly invented breakfast cereal!  Dairies and hog farms quickly jumped on the campaign to push their breakfast offerings as well.  And today, well, Breakfast is the Most Important Meal of the Day is considered Gospel!

I’m not saying it isn’t true, just ironic that it was coined by the company that serves up junk food to children across the world to start their day.  Those sugary breakfasts are going to be a real hit with the teachers who have deal with little Johnny working off his sugar high in school 

Nutritionalist Adele Davis was also big on breakfast.  She used to say Eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dinner like a pauper.  This seems to make good sense.  Fill the body with the most nutrients when it is going to use them… at the start of the day.

However, there is another philosophy on this which is to eat a very light breakfast so your body can finish the detox cycle is started while you were sleeping.  One of the premises of the Fit for Life diet was to eat only fruit in the morning for this reason.

We’re not bashing Kellogg’s here.  Nor are we telling you to eat or not eat breakfast.  We just felt you would enjoy knowing the source of the mantra we all seem to live by… and now you can make your own decision on whether or not you eat breakfast. If you do decide eating breakfast is the way to go, ditch the cold cereal.  Make up some of our Gluten-Free Superfood Quiche in advance and have a nutrient loaded breakfast to start your day instead.

I hear there are people that love fruitcake.  I’ve just never met one of them. I suppose it comes down to which variety you have tried.  There are SO many variations of this now traditional Christmas food that there’s a chance some people have eaten fruitcake that actually tasted good.  The one thing for sure about the fruitcake is that it’s enduring.

Fruitcake dates back to Egyptian times and has been preserved just as long!  The ancient Egyptians used to place them on the tombs of their dead kind with other things they considered essential for their journey to the afterlife where they still remain today. Knowing the efforts people go to today to be rid of the nasty Christmas gift, perhaps there was another reason they buried it.

Roman soldiers and crusaders were sent to battle with fruitcake saddlebags.  Supposedly it was due to the nearly imperishable nature of the food, though we have to wonder if perhaps it was just another effort to be rid of it! 

Over the centuries more and more has been added to the fruitcake and perhaps this is why they have become so disliked.  After all, too many cooks spoil the broth.  By the 16th century many cups of sugar were added to the recipe.  Then candied fruits and nuts.  By the time the Victorian era arrived, alcohols had been added to the mix too.

This led to fruitcake being proclaimed “sinfully rich” and banned across Europe in the 1800s.  The ban was eventually lifted and fruitcake became a common companion with English Teas.  The overloaded fruitcake eventually made it to America and has become a traditional part of the Christmas season.

As the popularity of the fruitcake grew, so did the multitude of ways to get rid to it.  In 1969 someone decided to launch a fruitcake into outer space with the Apollo 11 mission.  I’m told this was not in an effort to get rid of the fruitcake.  Supposedly it was the only food sent into space with them that could be eaten as a real food and not a space age food tablet.  My guess is there was little difference in the density.

Since then others have worked to catapult the fruitcake as far as possible out of their lives.  About 22 years ago in Manitou Springs Colorado a man named Floyd O’Neil organized an annual Colorado fruitcake toss.  This is a serious activity.  Fruitcake tosses are organized into categories, the kids fruitcake toss, the hand toss and then the serious fruitcake tossers use giant slingshots, catapults and even canons in an attempt to launch them into space for some poor alien to munch on.

You can even rent fruitcakes for a dollar for the toss if you weren’t lucky enough to be gifted one for Christmas.  Apparently fruitcakes are so durable they can not only last in a tomb for centuries, they can survive being launched in a canon and be rented out again!

So be sure to bake or obtain a fruitcake on National Fruitcake Day.  Then use it to celebrate the Colorado Fruitcake Toss.  Or if you don’t live in Colorado organize your own fruitcake toss for the National Fruitcake Toss Day on January 3rd.

Or for a nice variation, you could try the Italian version which is Panettone.  Like fruitcake it has fruit and nuts, but a lighter consistency and no alcohol.  Though I can’t say I’m that fond of it either.  Then there is the German version which is called Stollen which is a raised bread with fruit and nuts, often a marzipan filling.  I consider Stollen quite delicious actually.  

Stollen is a bit hard to make, so if you want to try it order it from our Amazon links.  Or forget the more traditional fruitcakes completely and bake up some banana nut bread with this recipe. It isn’t a Christmas tradition, but at least it’s delicious.
