21 September 2017

If you think it’s still a little early to be concerning ourselves with Christmas puddings, the news is that we started making them weeks ago, at the height of summer. Back in July, as we do every year, we dug out the recipe for our Classic Christmas Pudding. It’s based on an old Bettys family one belonging to Lesley Wild’s mother, although these days, as with all of our Christmas puddings, we use vegetarian-friendly suet.
