Christmas Pudding

If you traditionally set fire to your Christmas Pudding – as we always do – spare a thought for Oliver Cromwell. Setting light to the pudding on Christmas Day harked back to pagan festivals and as a result was banned by Cromwell and the Puritans in the 1650s. Mind you, the pudding wasn’t worth eating at that time either because he had banned mincemeat as an unacceptable indulgence.....

(This pudding is from Taylor's Classics and is both nut free and suitable for vegetarians.)
