We won’t be doing a Christmas pudding this year, the main reason being that I’m the only one around here who’ll eat it. I’m now a vegetarian, and a Christmas pudding without eggs and butter or suet just doesn’t sound right, so I’ll stick to clementines.
Here are some links to articles (with recipes) about Stir-up Sunday. Let me know if you decide to make a Christmas pudding this weekend.
