A TESCO delivery was made at the arranged time and place, having placed the order with them on the net the previous day. Stock for the next few weeks. Including, this time, ingredients for a Christmas pudding. The exotic stuff includes mixed spice, cinnamon, nutmeg, apple, carrot, luxury mixed fruit, nuts, orange & lemon rind and some strong beer! All mixed together with a wish and left over night. Then put into two basins to be 'steamed' on our diesel fire all day. For many years Ann's Christmas puddings have been a tradition in our family. On the day it would have a twig of holly stuck in the top and hot burning brandy poured over it. Then served with brandy butter. Many years ago a silver sixpence may be found in your serving!
