February 12th


NATIONAL PLUM PUDDING DAY – I was surprised to find out that a dessert, traditionally known as Christmas pudding, is celebrated on February 12th.  Strangely, there are no plums in most Plum Pudding recipes.  It usually includes  nutmeg, raisins, nuts, apples, cinnamon and dates but no plums.

Popular in England,  while making Plum Pudding, each person in the home is to hold onto the wooden spoon simultaneously, stir the batter and make a wish.

It can be served as is or (in my world) drizzled with either icing or caramel. Yum!

Traditionally, plum pudding is made well in advance, often up to a year. If you make it today, it’ll be ready for Christmas!
