Add 2 Tablespoons vinegar 1 teaspoon vanilla & nutmeg to taste. Serve sauce just warmed.Sauce also good over warm gengerbread. Read More

Our family has a long-held tradition. Suet pudding is served after Christmas dinner. Just before serving apricot or peach brandy is dribbled onto the pudding. The lights are dimmed the pudding is lit with a match and the family enjoys a short show of blue flames before the lights come back on and the pudding is served with cream sauce as described in the recipe. There is no set amount of brandy in the recipe I was given. A little goes a long way! Read More

My Grandma Erma used to make this when I was younger and I haven't had it in years! I was excited to find this recipe and set out to make it! It's delicious and tastes just like I remember! I will say that I have never steamed a pudding before so I thought the directions were a little vague in that area. Thanks to You Tube I was able to brush up on steaming a pudding! There was no time listed for the steaming but 2 hours seemed to do the trick for me. I will make this again! The sauce is amazing as well! Read More
