Last night a dozen or so brave souls trekked through the snow for our evening service. So, with enough pudding ingredients to feed the 5000, everyone went home with a least two puddings, and so took more. The left over mix made a 2 pint one which is now starting its 8 hour steam, and some is in a square box until I find a contained to steam it in!
I steamed the four little ones last night (2 hours) and this morning, now they're cooled, I tipped one out to see if it was edible!! It looks more stodgy than it is, and the teaspoonful I tried tastes great - really fruity. Quite a 'light' colour for Christmas pud but it seems it worked. Phew.
