Having been nicknamed as "the soup that won the war" Pepper Pot has its very own day of celebration. National Pepper Pot Day is celebrated annually on December 29th.
The winter of 1777 – 1778 was brutal. The Continental Army was fighting for the newly formed country of the United States of America during the Revolutionary War. As they were camped at Valley Forge on December 29th, 1777, George Washington ask the army's chef to prepare a meal that would boost their moral and warm them. The chef rounded up some peppercorn, small bits of meat, tribe and other ingredients and called it Pepper Pot Soup, also known as Philadelphia Pepper Pot Soup.
The meal was well received and it was nicknamed "the soup that won the war".
