Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper

“Shrove” comes from the verb “to shrive” (to confess and receive absolution), referring to the ancient practice of confessing sins and receiving absolution in order to keep a holy Lent. Other names for this day include Carnival, meaning “farewell to meat”, and Mardi Gras, meaning “Fat Tuesday.”

Pancake suppers are traditional as they were a way of using up milk, eggs, and fat since those were not allowed in the strict fasting of Lent. The ingredients were made into pancakes, a meal which came to symbolize preparation for the discipline of Lent.
