F' me mate, I knew I had forgotten something. Thank you for the very meaningful comment.Last one I had that looked as good as that was made by my nana. Ahhh, the memory of finding thrippenny bits. ( 3p) I always found it funny us three boys all got the same amount,lmao. We went decimal 10 July 67 , I still remember the jingle, the 10th of July .. Next year. I was 10.
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.

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