It’s not really in my field of expertise to make my own Christmas Pudding, I have only done it once and that turned out to be rock hard. I am quite happy others making it for me as they can do a better job. However, this year I thought I would be brave and do my own.
I chose a recipe that didn’t include the incredients I dislike the most:
- Large nuts
Actually the recipe I did choose did contain some of those but I put extra dried fruit or alcohol to compensate.
So Stir Up Sunday, this year on 24th November, was the traditional day to make your pudding. This pudding is in two chunks, stir the incredients, leave for a week, then steam the pudding/s.
Unless I made an error the stirring part was actually incredibly easy. Mix the dry incredients, add the fruit, stir in the wet stuff. I felt drunk just smelling it, did I put in too much alcohol or is there such a thing as too much?
So, I wait until next Sunday to do the steaming. Below are pictures of my first session.
