This recipe has been in my family since as long as I can remember. We have it every year for Christmas Dinner. The original recipe comes from the Welsh side of my family. It's a very black plum pudding in the oldest tradition. It has everything but the kitchen sink in it, as well as a lot of rum. It's rumoured there are pirates in the Welsh side of my ancestry, which might explain the rum. Start the puddings about 2 weeks before Christmas as it needs to age and mellow. Some people say you should start your pudding 3 months before, but I think that's a bit extreme. It makes two puddings, one for Christmas and one for New Years' Day. -- Yo, ho, ho, and a Merry Christmas!
