Nat’l Plum Pudding Day

Hello there. Not sure why we are celebrating plum pudding in February, except it is listed on the National Day Calendar!

Hattingdon’s not complaining. She adores her plum pudding hat. Here she is, modeling it for us.

Plum Pudding Hattingdon.

The name Christmas pudding is first recorded in 1858 in a novel by Anthony Trollope.

What’s in it?

Plum pudding is usually made up of nutmeg, raisins, nuts, apples, cinnamon, and dates, along with other ingredients.  In England, traditionally every person in the home holds onto the wooden spoon together to help stir the batter. While they are stirring, they also make a wish!  Plum pudding is also called plum duff.

See you again soon. Hugs,
