Bugger me that hob looks clean enough to eat your dinner off. If I cook it ends up the third place setting.

After six hours in the pot the pud looked good. It will now be fed with plum brandy till the 25th when it will receive another 2 hours cooking before lunch. We have 50% of the mix left which we will cook today in 2/3 smaller pots. The first one will be consumed this weekend.

This will probably seem like a ridiculous question. What happens to it between cooking it now and adding the last 2 hours on the 25th? Does it go in the fridge, freezer, sit out, etc.?

Just in the pantry or a cool dark room. I will feed this one every week with plumb brandy. The last one we made was in the UK, I cooked it in January and fed it once a month.

I made mine today (currently steaming) after a missed stir up Sunday because of a flare up of my immune issues.
This year I have some charms as I’ve run out of shillings, and can’t get to junk shop I usually get them from.
7 puddings, one for us and the rest are to be wrapped, tagged and gifted.

Bravo. I dub you queen of puddings. This is what our test pudding looked like last night.
