SUPERB ENGLISH PLUM PUDDING



Superb English Plum Pudding image

This pudding is really best when made a year in advance and allowed to mellow. It was customary to make it early in Advent - the religious season before Christmas - and use it the following year. Everyone in the family was supposed to stir the pudding once for good luck. If you can't make it the year before, at least give it a few weeks to age.
