NOVEMBER 26 MEANS IT’S TIME TO BUY
A CHRISTMAS PUDDING
Did you know, Sunday November 26th is ‘stir up Sunday’, the day
when Christmas puddings were traditionally made?
For hundreds of years the 25th Sunday after Trinity was British pudding making day, but according to Christopher Cole, who runs Cole’s Traditional Foods, the country’s largest privately owned Christmas pudding producer, today more than nine out of ten people will buy one rather than spend up to eight hours making it at home.
This is still a good time to purchase one though. Buy your pudding now and keep it until Christmas day and it will taste better than one that’s freshly made. Explains master baker, Christopher Cole:
“The mixture of alcohol and fruit that are the hallmark of a good pudding both take time to mature together and the longer you keep your pudding the better it will taste come December 25th.”
While once most puddings were made with very similar ingredients, today they are lighter in texture and the trend is towards ones made with richer, more luxurious ingredients. Catering for the most discerning taste, the Coles range now even includes one made with French Champagne.
