Hurrah for Christmas Pudding!

This is one thing I've not been brave enough to make by myself yet (as a married lady with my own household rather than helping my mum with hers), but one day I will. I know my mum made hers yesterday and I'll be looking forward to it.

Made with love and genealogy like that, as opposed to mechanically wrapped and put into a tin, fruitcake doesn't sound half bad!

We light Cherries Jubilee on fire every Christmas. I like your imagery. I'm going to have to use that. :)

The one staple of my childhood Christmases was "English Christmas Cookies" -- essentially dried fruit (dark and light raisins, currants, citron, and 'fruitcake mix') held together by a bare minimum of brown-sugar batter. But no booze; we were a T-total family. That part I'm glad to have outgrown!

I like those really boozy fruitcakes, with a hot drink. Mmmmm.

I've never had Christmas pudding. And, I just finished reading "The Omnivore's Dilemma", so what a timely post.

Mmmmmm, I love, love LOVE fruitcake. The lowly, poor fruitcake. Can't get no respect Stateside.

Wonderfully written, and as always, something to think about.

(And I'm feeling a little guilty for all those time I razzed my Dad for being the only person I knew who actually enjoys fruitcake...but I'll be OK...carry on.) ;-)

I think this is my favorite blog post of yours so far. Awesome. Suet. Love it.

Ack, you and Fr. Z and your Christmas puddings! I love, love, love Christmas pudding...and no one else in my family will eat it. What to do? It's an awful lot of work for something only I would eat, so I haven't made it since I married, and enviously eye other people's Christmas pudding blog posts.
