NATIONAL BUTTERSCOTCH PUDDING DAY
National Butterscotch Pudding Day is observed annually on September 19. The primary ingredients in the making of butterscotch are brown sugar and butter. However, corn syrup, vanilla, and salt are also sometimes used. In a 1848 newspaper, according to “Housewife’s Corner” and Masluk Cream Co., the real recipe for “making Doncaster butterscotch is one pound of butter, one pound of sugar and a quarter of a pound of treacle, boiled together.”
Butterscotch is often used as a flavor for items such as sauces, candies, and frostings.
