We are all about tradition here at the English Tea Store. English Christmas Pudding, also known as Plum Pudding or Figgy Pudding, is a delicious Christmas dinner tradition dating back to the 14th century! It has been changed & re-invented over the years. By Victorian times, it has molded into what they are today, a delicious modern take on a blend of nutmeg, raisins, nuts, apples, cinnamon & many other ingredients! (Each brand has different ingredients) Spend more time enjoying your family this Christmas than in the kitchen and get a Christmas pudding today!
Putting a silver coin in the pudding is another custom that is said to bring luck to the person that finds it first! That may be a fun tradition to start with your family.
