As the festive season approaches, warm up your Christmas celebrations with our delectable Crooked Creek Steamed Plum Christmas Puddings. Expertly cooked and steamed in their own little basins, these festive treats are ready to make your celebrations even more special. Available in two sizes - a cosy 400g (Small) and a generous 800g (Large), they cater to all your holiday needs. Here's how you can prepare these festive delights to perfection.
Steaming to Perfection:
Our Crooked Creek puddings come pre-cooked, so you only need to gently reheat them. To do this, position the lidded basin (lid side up) in a steamer over boiling water. If a steamer isn't available, use a large saucepan, place the pudding on a trivet or an inverted heat-resistant saucer, ensuring the basin does not touch the saucepan base. Add boiling water until it's a third of the way up the pudding basin. Allow your pudding to steam for approximately 2 hours, adding boiling water as necessary. Remember to prevent water from entering your pudding and never let the pan boil dry.
For a quick and effortless method, consider slicing the pudding while it's cool or at room temperature and heating it in the microwave. For every 100 grams of pudding, microwave for around 20 seconds. This ensures a warm, moist slice of heaven in no time, perfect for those unexpected holiday guests.
Serving and Storage:
Once your pudding is warmed to perfection, tip it out of its basin, and add a few festive flourishes. Consider dusting the top with icing sugar for a snow-kissed effect or adding a sprig of holly or rosemary for a traditional touch. Pair your warm, rich pudding with a dollop of custard or a scoop of vanilla ice cream for the ultimate festive indulgence.
Store your unopened Crooked Creek pudding in a cool, dry place. Once opened, keep the leftovers in their basin in the fridge. This way, you can savour the festive flavours for a little longer.
This holiday season, fill your home with the sweet, spicy aroma of our Crooked Creek Steamed Plum Christmas Puddings. They are a delicious way to warm hearts and bellies, making your Christmas celebration even more magical. Remember, the magic of Christmas is not just in the presents, but in the presence of a delightful pudding!
