First made in 1777

Pepper Pot Soup was first made on December 29, 1777 as requested

by General Washington to lift the spirits of his men, and the cook for the army

created this hot and spicy for the dinner meal.

It has since been called “The soup that won the War”.

Back then tripe was a main ingredient of this soup:

Today many use any type beef or chicken.

In fact, it is simply a peppery stew!   That simple.
