Pease Porridge Hot

Information About Pease Porridge Hot

"Pease Porridge Hot" and some also call it "Pease Pudding Hot" (familiarly also known as "Peas Porridge Hot") is a nursery rhyme and children's game. Pease Porridge refers to a type of porridge made from peas and known as pease pottage or pease pudding.

An early version of Pease Porridge Hot has been found in the form of a riddle in John Newbery's Mother Goose's Melody of 1760.

The rhyme's lyrics originated possibly from the habit of cooking a big pot of porridge which was topped up, as it got lower, for 9 days before it became inedible.
