Plum Pudding (Merry Christmas)

I tried plum pudding for the first time today. It just hasn't appealed to me in the past, but we picked up a small pudding at a British imports shop in Plymouth last month, on impulse.

We will be having it again. And it will be homemade. I had no idea it would be so good! Lovely blue flames and all...not to mention a good dose of real heavy cream from a local dairy...I adored it.

Merry Christmas, everyone. I hope you had a joyous day.

Merry Christmas to you and your family, furry and otherwise!

The pudding sounds wonderful. I haven't actually tried it, but have been told that the secret is in drowning it in good-quality alcoholic beverages, repeatedly. Sounds good to me!

Batty, it was wonderful. So moist and rich! (And I'm not generally a fan of heavy Brit style pud, especially with raisins.)

I did steam it for half an hour. That probably helped!

Merry, merry to you and yours, too. =^..^=
