|Dear Patricia, my granddad was Scottish and my grandma from Yorkshire which may account why the family recipes are simple! As I said on one of the post on here and lately, Christmas has become so commercialized people have forgotten what it is really about! They already have Santa's Grotto in the top west end stores since August 1st! My mother makes a lot of Christmas puddings as she gives some away as Christmas gifts, for I would prefer a homemade pudding rather than the junk gifts they sell for Christmas nowadays! As they are extremely filling you can make a small one enough for two people or even smaller ones just for one! They are like a chutney in that you must let them mature to get the best out of them. Once eaten they are never forgotten as you remember them and want more. Doris (Karaoke), asked for the recipe and she left England after the second world war as a war bride and she still remembers them after all that time.
Treat your Husband and make some!
