Reading Terminal Market celebrated "forgotten regional favorites" from the Pennsylvania region this past Saturday with their Festival of Forgotten Foods. Setting up shop in the Market's Center Court, the festival featured samples abound of pepper pot soup (a stew of beef tripe, peppers and other veggies popular during the Revolutionary War), liverwurst (an often-spreadable German sausage made with pork liver), Paw Paw ice cream (made by Bassett’s from fruit indigenous to the U.S. that’s a cross between a mango and a banana), and more.
