Christmas Goodies. . .


One of the nicest, most delicious parts of the Christmas holiday period has to do with all of the various cookies and foods that we make and consume during these few weeks in December and early January. With that in mind, today's Yuletide illustration shows a Victorian-era Christmas pudding. Once about 25 years ago, my maternal grandmother, whose parents came to the United States from Cornwall in the U.K. during the late 19th Century, made a Christmas pudding. It looked lovely, but the pudding was a bit scorched (and tasted that way) after it was flambeed. Haven't had a Christmas pudding since then. Hmmmm. I wonder if the Grand Duchess might. . .

If you ask politely perhaps the Grand Duchess might just bake you . . . another stollen.

Is Christmas Pudding not normally eaten in the United States?

Astounded. We will have to arrange for an airlift of a christmas pudding. It is the season of office functions etc and on monday I had what I call a double dinner day ie lunch and dinner - yes you have guessed it, two turkey dinners, two christmas puds etc. I now realise why the Edwardians were all like barrels. I reckon on only three more until the actual Christmas day.
