SHOREHAM — Shrove Tuesday is the day before Lent, which starts on Ash Wednesday. This year Shrove Tuesday is Feb. 28.
Another name for this day, Pancake Day, comes from the old English custom of using up all the fattening ingredients in the house before Lent, so that people were ready to fast during Lent. The fattening ingredients that most people had in their houses in those days were eggs and milk. A very simple recipe to use up these ingredients was to combine them with some flour and make pancakes.
