This was a VERY interesting story. I loved hearing the wishes of each person. You really portrayed each character well when it was their turn at stirring.

Very well written. Even with Elizabeth's wish, had fun reading it.

The recipe sounds similar to my aunt's old Scottish Christmas pudding recipe. Yummy! I love this story especially when Charles and Darcy sneak down the stairs to stir the pudding in the Netherfield kitchen!

Not my cup of tea but neither is Fruit Cake. This story is very cute. It was interesting to me to see this tradition.
Thank you

the story is lovely, however, (puts on food historian hat)

at the point the pudding is stirred, it is just being mixed up in a bowl in the kitchen table, it is not simmering over the fire.

Hannah Glasse recipe doesn’t go into details all Brit cooks at the time would just already know by having been around it all their life: after the thick batter is made up, it is dumped into a pudding cloth (or clout here in Scotland) which is wrapped up like a bag and tied at the top with string. the wrapped pudding is then put into simmering water for a long slow boil. the flours and fruits swell up just as in baking, the pudding ends up quite round. (modern cooks use a pudding basin, a tallish narrowish bowl, covered with aluminium foil or greaseproof paper and stood in a large pot with water coming about halfway up the pudding basin. the pot is covered and the water kept at a simmer and the pudding rises in the wet steamy heat to fill the bowl the result is less round but no matter)

after the pudding is done, you let it cool, douse it with booze and store it, tightly covered, adding more booze week so by christmas every bite of it is yummy and boozy. such pudding can be made even further in advance though, the booze preserves them. shops sell christmas pudding that have aged fir longer, all the way up to a year. for that matter, some folks buy enough now to eat them throughout the coming year. they are sold in so many different flavours nowadays that’s the only reasonable way to be able to try more than one or two each year.
