Date: Fri, 29 Oct 1993 10:40:56 GMT Now is the time to prepare your Christmas puddings. This is a traditional English recipe.

Mix thoroughly the suet, flour, breadcrumbs, spices, and sugar. Mix in the fruit, mixed peel, nuts, chopped apple then the zest.

In a new bowl beat the eggs and add the stout and rum. Add to the dry ingredients, and stir VERY well ( it is best to use a very large bowl).

Cover the bowl and leave overnight.

Grease 2, 2 pint pudding basins and pack the mixture into them. Cover with greasproof paper and pudding cloths, tied on with string. Steam for 8 hours. Cool, and store in a dark, cool, dry cupboard. To reheat for eating, steam for 2 hours. Serve with Cumberland Rum Butter.

Cumberland Rum Butter: Blend butter and sugar, add rum slowly, and mix well. Pack into molds for serving and chill. Remove from fridge just before serving.
