Christmas Pudding Sun, 07/13/08 11:05 AM (permalink)
I was really into making traditional English foods last fall and managed a nice Steak and Kidney Pie, some not so good Yorkshire Puddings, and some excellent Bubble and Squeak(Make it whenever I can now). However, what I really wanted to do was a traditional Christmas Pudding for the holidays. I found a really good recipe(I assume) but I couldn't figure out where to find some of the ingredients I needed. Here is the recipe I found: http://www.greenchronicle.com/christmas_recipes/christmas_pudding.htm

The reason I am posting now is that it says the best Puddings are made well in advance(sometimes up to a year) and left to sit and "gather flavor" until it is time to re-steam it to eat. I would have started even earlier but I completely forgot I had wanted to attempt this until just the other day.

Actually... now that I look at the recipe for the first time since last fall I guess I only need help with the Suet. I believe I found websites where I can buy the dried fruits. The suet is still a problem. Apparently the only suet you can find in this country has bird seed in it. Anyone have any ideas where I might come across some, make some, or even improvise some?

Oh, and any advice for someone who has attemped Christmas Pudding before would be great.
