1. Its sure cute packaging—I just wish it tasted better. As a American in London you can never get used to these for Christmas. They age them for 6 months and then you cook it for HOURS and HOURS and then you light it on fire with alcohol. It gives off a lovely blue flame before it goes out. Its just a really WEIRD dessert!!!

  2. My Mum used to make dozens of them each year, wrapped up in ticking with an elaborate knot. I could never get used to the taste either (and I lived in Ireland my whole life!), but I enjoyed the big blue flame!

  3. Daylesford is one of my happy places. I’ve only been to their farmshop but am desperate to go to their London store too. I think you have to be British to understand Christmas pudding; it’s wonderful with brandy butter – yum!
