Christmas Pudding is a great English tradition. I had always bought mine while living in England, but found I couldn't buy them here in the US. I did an internet search and came across this recipe. I have listed this recipe exactly as I found it, although I have had to make some substitutions to the dried fruit as I can't find everything listed, but other than that, I make no changes. This will be the 5th year I have made these puddings and last year I made extra so I could give them to some of the friends we have made here. I will be doing the same this year as I had such good reviews.
