[FHCx43] National Plum Pudding Day

Feeling a little bit international?

TODAY IS NATIONAL PLUM PUDDING DAY!

Plum pudding isn’t actually made from plums. Go figure. In the pre-Victorian era, everything raisin-related was just called “plums.” That makes a lot of sense. Thanks, England.

Instead, it’s this strange, gelatinous raisiny British/Irish pudding. Meant to be ingested on Christmas, this pudding has been given its official day in February. Because that makes a lot of sense, too.

We initially planned on making our own starting last August and letting it steep for months. Then we forgot. Regardless, here we are with our plum pudding, thanks to Walkers.

I’m sure the homemade kind looks more appealing.

It’s kind of like a fruit compote mixed with a sticky toffee pudding. The sweetness from all the dried fruits is made more intense by being super-hot. It’s kind of hard to eat as all of the small pieces come apart. Not one of the best desserts we’ve had. Oh well!

Tortellini Tomorrow!
