SOUTH MISSISSIPPI (WLOX) -

Pusharatas are normally seen around Christmas time on the Mississippi Gulf Coast.

But Wednesday, the Slavonian Ladies’ Auxiliary whipped up a special batch just for the 2016 Leadership Gulf Coast class as part of Cultural and Heritage Day for the Leadership program.

The ladies showed how the sweet pastries are made, the history behind the doughnuts, and why they continue to carry on this Slavic tradition.

WLOX Reporter Trang Pham-Bui will have more on the tradition tonight on WLOX News Now.
