Christmas pudding (authentic Australian)

January 9th, 2006 · No Comments


For Christmas, our Australian friend B. gave us a pudding made from a recipe kept in her family for generations. I don’t think I’d ever had such a pudding. To reheat it before serving, I boiled for half an hour. It tasted like a moist version of fruitcake, although I’d much prefer B.’s pudding to that stiff rectangular stuff. The stories of her family’s traditions – and the amount of labor she put each year into making it, intrigued me, and so did its shape, the curve that comes from being cooked in a square of calico. Many thanks to B. for this delicious treat!
