This is a modern adaptation of a recipe from the 1st cookbook published in America. The author is Amelia Simmons and was published in 1796. This was a pudding that was to be served WARM with dinner and at the holidays as the sugar and lemons were very expensive. They were not big on deserts like we are now - it is sweet but not overly sweet.

Fresh whipped cream is so much better than the stuff you buy in a tub or a can and so easy to make. We prefer to sweeten our whipped cream...
