Rice Pudding

Today is the feast of St. Thomas.
Little is known about this Apostle.
He is best known for his expression of utter disbelief when Jesus died.
Thus giving rise to the expression “doubting Thomas.”
In England farmers would reserve wheat from the harvest.
This was distributed to the poor on this day.
They would boil the wheat down until soft.
Then they would add milk,  sugar and spices.
It was very similar to how rice pudding is made today.


Peace be with you,
