For decades after the close of the War we had a small company here, started by four ladies (friends of me Mums) who made real English plum puddings, and very good they were - we had one almost ever year. I now discover that the successors to the Pudding Ladies have shut their doors and the puds are no more but I would still like to have my pud. I have found (Matthew) Walkers on-line but time is now a bit short to be certain have one here for Christmas (unless I use the outrageously and prohibitively expensive "fast" delivery.) So being the "can-do" person that I am, I have decided to do the unthinkable, or perhaps just foolhardy, . . . I want to attempt to MAKE a pudding. I would be glad to have any recipes, instructions, hints, tips, secrets, or anything you or 'er Indoors might be able to offer. Yours in suet and sweetmeats, H Wade MODEL ENGINEERING DISCUSSION LIST.
