I have been looking for a receipe to make Suet Pudding for some time and this receipe looks just like what my grandmother would make for Christmas Dinner when I was young. I just want to thank-you for sharing, now once again I will beable to enjoy and can pass on to my grandchildren.
My grandmother also made this and I am a great granny now. It is delicious except she made a sauce using 2 c. water--2 Tbl.corn starch, 1/2 c. sugar-- and either a couple of Tbl. whiskey or 1 tsp. vanilla.
Very close to my Grandmother's pudding. The sauce she made for it was 1cup water,1cup sugar,1/2cup butter or margarine. Boil & thicken with either 2 Tablespoons flour or cornstarch. Add 2 Tablespoons vinegar, 1 teaspoon vanilla & nutmeg to taste. Serve sauce just warmed.Sauce also good over warm gengerbread.
Our family has a long-held tradition. Suet pudding is served after Christmas dinner. Just before serving, apricot or peach brandy is dribbled onto the pudding. The lights are dimmed, the pudding is lit with a match and the family enjoys a short show of blue flames before the lights come back on and the pudding is served with cream sauce, as described in the recipe. There is no set amount of brandy in the recipe I was given. A little goes a long way!
