Cute packaging on this little Christmas pudding from Daylesford Organic.
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!!!
Oh my goodness – we really are twins separated at birth — have this Christmas pudding saved for a post for next week and am so surprised that anyone else knew about Daylesford!
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!
i *still* haven’t been there yet, but i will! and i promise to tell you all about it when i do… those puddings alone look like they would be worth the visit!
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!
My British granny makes it and I love it! But I am weird like that. I like almost all food!
