Kids make transparent pudding

Can pudding be transparent? That’s what children will find out when they attend Colonial Cookery and Customs for Kids on Saturday, Dec. 29, from 11 to 12:30, at the Wilton Historical Society, 224 Danbury Road.

The recipe, which came to the colonies by way of England, calls for butter, sugar and eggs. It was made in New England and Pennsylvania Dutch country. A similar dish, known as chess pie, is still made in the South.

While making transparent pudding, the children will also learn about Colonial manners, morals and way of life. The cost is $10/members, $15/non-members. Register: or call 203-762-7257.
