I've been trying to decide if I want to make a plum pudding for our upcoming Steampunk Christmas event on Dec 14th. I used to make them all the time, but have not done so for years. The fact is, I don't really care for them. For those unfamiliar, they're sort of like a fruitcake, though there are differences in ingredients. And they're steamed instead of baked.
Once upon a time some members of my family liked fruitcake. I started making my own, instead of ordering them from Texas. My fruitcakes were the best in the world. Then I branched out in plum pudding. But, over time, as distances increased and we stopped doing much for Christmas, I stopped making them. Maybe I'll toss a coin.
By the way, my mesquite grilled turkey is the best in the world also. But that's another story.
