Recipe Notes

This recipe really is from my grandmother, but I call it mother's nanner puddin recipe because - after mom died, I was looking for my recipe card, couldn't find it and before I thought twice, picked up the phone to call mom; only to realize I couldn't, I looked in my recipe box again, and there it was - "mama helped me find it". Grannie and mom thought it was AWFUL to use pudding in Banana Pudding, and they didn't like meringue on top - so this is simple, basic, but delish.

Recipe Notes

This is a very old recipe at least from the 1950's. My Mama made this every Christmas. It is hard to believe just how hard it used to be to get fresh fruits when you lived in the country.
