National Pepper Pot Day

December 29, 2022 @ 12:00 am - 11:59 pm

National Pepper Pot Day

National Pepper Pot Day is celebrated every year on December 29th.

It is meant to celebrate a soup that was nicknamed ‘The Soup That Won The War.’ The war here refers to the American Revolutionary War for independence from Britain.

The Philadelphia Pepper Pot soup is a thick soup made up of beef tripe, whatever vegetables are available, and of course, peppercorns.

This peppery soup has a long history and probably originates from the Caribbean.

It was brought over to America by enslaved people, who later sold the soup out in the streets.
