National Pfeffernusse Day (RECIPES)

Five Food Finds about Pfeffernusse

1) Pfeffernusse is a variant of German Lebkuchen, or gingerbread.
2) Pferffernusse cookies differ from regular German gingerbread is that they are rolled into balls and then glazed with powdered sugar after baking.
3) Pferffernusse literally means "pepper."
4) A traditional Pfeffernusse cookie will be too hard to eat without dipping in liquid for the first few days.
5) The cookies do soften with age and more modern recipe adaptations have been made to make them soft from the start.

Today's Food History
---1675 On December 23, 1675, Charles II of England, issued a proclamation suppressing Coffee Houses. The public response was so negative that he revoked it on January 8, 1676.
A Proclamation for the Suppression of Coffee Houses: "Whereas it is most apparent that the multitude of Coffee Houses of late years set up and kept within this Kingdom ... and the great resort of idle and disaffected persons to them, have produced very evil and dangerous effects; as well for that many tradesmen and others, do herein misspend much of their time, which might and probably would be employed in and about their Lawful Calling and Affairs; but also for that in shuck houses ... divers, false, malitious, and scandalous reports are devised and spread abroad to the Defamation of His Majesty's Government, and to the disturbance of the Peace and Quiet of the Realm; his Majesty hath thought it fit and necessary, that the said Coffee Houses be (for the Future) put down and suppressed ..."
---1901 Sir Joseph Henry Gilbert died. An English chemist, he is the co-inventor (with John Bennet Lawes) of superphosphate fertilizer.
---1940 Jorma Kaukonen of the music group 'Hot Tuna' was born.
