My Mother's Christmas Pudding Recipe ...You make it a year ahead of time ...a wonderful thing to make in the New Year months ..
Now is a great time to be thinking of the coming Christmas and as my Mother used to do every January she would make 4 Christmas Puddings ...and let them mature throughout the year ...they were just the most wonderful puddings you will ever eat
I thought I would share this one with you.
So this recipe is totally British
You may have to make a few adjustments to suit an American recipe
One of the fruits we call 'Sultanas' ...they are called 'Golden Raisins' in America
'Currants' are dried 'Black Currants' ..I believe that Publix and Whole Foods stock them
They are also available on Amazon.com
The 'Stout' my Mum would have used was 'Guinness' but a 'Newcastle' one will be fine.
Wrap the bowl and pudding in muslin cloth ...or some time of cloth that breaths and tie tightly with twine.
Place pudding in a pressure cooker with the water half way up the outside of the bowl.
Here is a link to show you how to get the pudding ready for steaming using foil instead of Muslin.
