A Little History Of Homemade Pumpkin Pie
North America is the pumpkin’s original home. The pumpkin was first exported to France, after that, it was brought to Tudor England, where its “pompion” flesh soon gained popularity as pie filling. English cookbooks published in the seventeenth century had instructions for making pumpkin pie. Including Hannah Woolley’s The Gentlewoman’s Companion (1675).

Rather of a sweet custard on a crust, pumpkin “pies” created by early American colonists were more likely to be a savory soup cooked and served in a pumpkin. Additionally, colonists cooked pumpkins and turned them into ale. In the 1796 guidebook American Cookery, a more contemporary pumpkin pie with a custard-like consistency made its first appearance.
It had modern-day spices in a pie crust with a delicious custard filling.
Since When Exist The Pumpkin Pie?
The recipes didn’t exist in American and Canadian cookbooks until the early nineteenth century, and pumpkin pie wasn’t often served for Thanksgiving until then. While the English way of cooking the pumpkin took a different turn, the Pilgrims brought pumpkin pie back to New England. The English pumpkin pie was made in the 19th century by filling the pumpkin with apples, spices, and sugar before baking it whole.
After the Civil War, Southern states in the United States opposed eating pumpkin pie because it was seen as an imposition of Yankee culture on the region, since there was no pumpkin pie eating tradition. Instead of making pumpkin pie, many Southern cooks created sweet potato pie or enhanced it with bourbon and nuts.
Today, pumpkin pie is typically served as dessert following Thanksgiving meal in much of Canada and the US.
Pumpkin Pie and US President
As part of a voluntary egg restriction drive supported by the Truman Administration, pumpkin pies were prohibited from Thanksgiving feasts in the United States in 1947, mostly due to the eggs needed in the recipe.
This was a task group created by President Truman’s Citizen’s Food Committee to regulate food consumption in the US in order to increase the amount of foreign food aid to Europe after World War II.
Due to Thanksgiving Day usually being on a Thursday, there was a significant outcry among American customers against the campaign’s “Egg-less & Poultry-less Thursday,” which debuted in October 1947. Thanksgiving 1947 at the White House saw no pumpkin pie being served because Truman kept his pledge.
Making the pumpkin puree
Put the pumpkin in a big pot, add water to cover it, and bring it to a boil. Let it simmer for 15 minutes covered with a lid. When is tender, drain and let the pumpkin cool.
