I made this Plum Pudding for my sister for Christmas. It took many days to make. It contains many ingredients including 12 kinds of fruit, 7 spices, 3 kinds of liquor and a dozen eggs, but it was worth it - it was a wonderful success. I also made paper versions of the traditional charms and associated Blessings. Everyone loved the ceremony of the flaming pudding and the wishes. It really did transmit a hefty dose of Christmas Spirit. Definitely a tradition to continue.
