Plum Puddings V
Finished! The smallest one came out a little lopsided - I think it tipped a little in the pot, so it stands at an angle. We'll probably keep that one for ourselves. The others look great, though - dark brown, almost black, and they appear moist yet solid.
Oh, I discovered a funny thing. Yesterday was what the English call "Stir-Up Sunday", that last Sunday before Advent. The name comes from the Collect for the Day in the 1549 Prayer Book:
Stir-up, we beseech thee, O Lord, the wills of thy faithful people; that they, plenteously bringing forth the fruit of good works, may of thee be plenteously rewarded; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.Anyway, it is traditional on or around this day to make Christmas puddings, so I inadvertently maintained an old tradition by making mine today.
