What is National Pepper Pot Day?
A hearty soup that earned the nickname "the soup that won the war" is being celebrated on December 29th. This dish reflects the history of the United States. The winter of 1777-1778 was brutal. The American soldiers were fighting to establish the United States of America during the Revolutionary War. On December 29th, 1777, George Washington was camped at Valley Forge. He asked the army’s chef to prepare a meal that would boost morale and warm them. The chef rounded up some peppercorn, small bits of meat, tripe and other ingredients. He called it Pepper Pot Soup, also known as Philadelphia Pepper Pot Soup. The soldiers received the meal well and nicknamed it “the soup that won the war.”
