National Plum Pudding Day
Plum pudding is a mouthwatering treat that, surprisingly enough, contains no plums! In the 17th century when it was first created, plums referred to raisins or other dried fruits. Plum pudding (aka Christmas pudding) is a steamed or boiled pudding usually served during the holiday season.
Plum pudding is composed of nutmeg, raisins, nuts, apples, cinnamon, dates, and many other ingredients. In England, it is tradition to have every person in a household simultaneously hold onto the wooden spoon together to help stir the batter. As they stir they also have to make a wish!
Did you know that during the Puritan reign in England, plum pudding was outlawed because it was considered “sinfully rich?” To celebrate this sinful dessert on National Plum Pudding Day, dig out Grandma’s old recipe for plum pudding and make some to share with friends and family!
