Christmas Plum Pudding is the perfect way to end your Christmas meal. The origin of this dessert lies in medieval England. It is called ‘pud’ in many places. Despite having the name ‘plum pudding’, it contains no plums. Raisins in those days were called ‘plums’ in the pre- Victorian era. This delicacy is served as a traditional dessert during Christmas. The recipe of this delicious dessert has been passed through families for several generations. The steam cooking method adds a unique favour, taste and texture to the pudding. The sweet spices offer a distinctive rich aroma. People often make this pudding and let it age for a month. The taste gets enhanced with time.
