25 Recipes: Figgy Pudding

07 December 2013  
We wish you a Merry Christmas!!

Remember the old Christmas song, "We wish you a Merry Christmas"?  And in the middle of that song are a couple of verses surely written by some very demanding, rude children. 

Now bring us some figgy pudding

Now bring us some figgy pudding 

Now bring us some figgy pudding

And a cup of good cheer.

We won't go until we get some

We won't go until we get some

We won't go until we get some

And bring it right here.

Once I get past the atrocious manners of these children, I'm wonder, "What in the heck is Figgy Pudding?"

Well, now I know. 

Chef Louis Ortiz has put up a video explaining how to make Figgy Pudding. Unfortunately, he doesn't give the measurements of the ingredients he uses, but eHow fills in that gap nicely with a full transcript on Traditional Figgy Pudding Recipe. http://www.ehow.com/video_2370560_traditional-figgy-pudding-recipe.html

I've got to be honest - although this looks delicious, I don't think I'll be making it soon. It looks like too much work. But, I do appreciate the video glimpse of what those naughty children were demanding. If you make it, please take photos and let us know how it turned out!
