The volunteers gathered at Nicholtown Baptist Church, housed at the Phillis Wheatley Community Center on Sunday, November 30th to distribute Noah's pudding to the congregants.
Noah's Pudding pudding is a cornucopia of healthy ingredients like dried fruits,legumes and whole grain wheat that are sweetened with sugar and fruit juices and cooked all together in one pot. This pudding traditionally contains apricots, raisins,currants, figs, pine nuts, walnuts, hazelnuts, chick peas and navy beans to name just a few ingredients.
In modern Turkish culture, Noah's ark pudding is a symbol of diversity, friendship and unity. When a cook prepares 'aşure,' they make a lot, as it's customary to distribute bowls of pudding to as many friends and neighbors as possible. This is what was done at the Phillis Wheatley Community Center.
