I’m at it again! My inherent love of random old British stuff compels me once more to steam a pudding on “Stir-Up Sunday,” the last before the first Sunday of Advent. Even though last year I made the Pud a little late and completely forgot to steam it on Christmas Day, I doggedly determined to attempt it again this year. Besides, all the spices and the candied orange peel just makes the house smell great during the six hour steam!
Just prior to being steamed.
After the steaming.
Just needs a holly spring and a topping of brandy butter and it could be something out of Dickens!
Or you could just douse it with more brandy and light it, like this fellow.
However, I don’t recommend that you actually eat it while it’s burning.
