Banana Pudding

 Sugar, if you ain't had banana puddin' in the South, you just ain't had banana puddin'. ~ Any Southerner

Banana pudding is ubiquitous in the South.  It’s on Mamaw’s table, at family reunions, lakeside picnics and BBQ’s.  It’s prepared for the grieving and the rejoicing.  No wonder we’re a little protective about it.  You can change some things like adding more or less bananas or more or less vanilla wafers (though they have to be Nabisco Nilla Wafers), but that’s about it.  I for one could never order banana pudding at a restaurant.  It has to be homemade or it’s just not worth it.
