  • Boston Durgin-Park


    Being in th Boston area and if you have not visited the Durgin- Park dinning hall (restaurant), then it is sad!

    Go there for the local fares, the history of New England of the earlier days, the 'down to earth foods' especially for the classical RUDE treatment intentionally done by the food servers.

    The following recipe can replicate the infamous dish served there, which is posted on the net (mine is almost exactly the same):

    BAKED INDIAN PUDDINGhttp://www.durgin-park.com/

    Durgin-Park's Indian pudding is the best there is. Dark brown with substantial gravity, it smells like roasted corn and tastes like the first
    Thanksgiving. The long cooking time is necessary to soften the corn and for the flavors to meld. Although some restaurants add raisins or other
    flavorings, the only traditional way to doll it up is with a scoop of vanilla ice cream melting fast atop each hot serving. Tommy Ryan loves telling the
    story about the time he was eating in New Hampshire-just a regular customer, unknown to the staff. He asked the waitress if they had any Indian pudding for dessert. "Well, we do," she said reluctantly, but then she bent close and clued him into a secret: "Sir, if you want really good Indian pudding, I suggest you go to Durgin-Park."

    Just to keep the record straight: this is not a Native American dish adapted by the colonist cooks. Its name comes from the fact that early
    settlers considered virtually anything made with corn to be Indian nature.

    1 1/2 plus 1 1/2 cups milk
    1/4 cup black molasses
    2 tablespoons sugar
    2 tablespoons butter
    1/4 teaspoons salt
    1/8 teaspoons baking powder
    1 egg
    1/2 cup yellow cornmeal

    Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F. In a bowl mix 1 1/2 cups of the milk with
    the molasses, sugar, butter, salt, baking powder, egg and cornmeal. Pour the
    mixture into a stone crock that has been well greased and bake until it
    boils. Heat and stir in the remaining 1 1/2 cups milk. Lower the oven
    temperature to 300 degrees F and bake for 5 to 7 hours. Serve warm with
    whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.

    makes 4 to 6 servings
