Great, the basins I bought came with lids, so I'll just re-seal and stick in the back of the cupboard. No pressure on your recipe here either Jamanda! Either way, both my little girls had fun making it. Actually, so did the wife. And me
Definitely not too easy getting a 1 year old to stir the thick mixture though!!!!

I tip mine out and wrap in foil - I need the basins before Christmas day! Did mine this weekend too - one in the pressure cooker and a first for me one in the slow cooker - both seemed to work well. Yummmmmmm!

And it's that time of year again. I think I will add in some prunes soaked in calvados this year. Can't do any harm.

I'm not sure I'll bother this year. Much as I like it, we are elsewhere for Christmas again (at a house where grandma makes the pudding) and no one else eats it.

We might skip Delia's recipe this year and give your grandmothers a try Jamanda.

Here we go again! Coconut fat instead of veggie suet (which is basically palm oil)

Does it make a good substitute Jamanda?

coconut fat is ace for several things, tt includes it in her vegan "butter" recipe which is surprisingly good although it is not butter.

will do when she gets back from mumsy duties in london village.

it is rather nice and iirc there are several versions

the one that involves a lactic fermentation of some sort of seeds to give a dubious looking liquor is a bit of a faff but is better than the chuck it all in and blend them ones

as far as i can tell a couple of hours work over a week or so can make a lot of the stuff.

it keeps a few weeks in a fridge and freezes well for the bulk stuff.

Thanks...when it comes, I'll pass it on to the definitely vegan, and lactose free family members

i am not sure it is lactose free as the lactic acid bacteria ferment of the seeds must have a substrate

it is very dairy free and maybe vegan if bugs don't count as critters
