Christmas puddings such a wonderful tradition.
Our puddings are all handmade in small batches, we start steaming our puddings in August, some years on the hottest day of the year!!! This is after the dried fruits have been steeped in either, Ale, Stout, Rum Cask Cider or Brandy for a few days before.
After steaming, we carefully wrap the puddings and leave them on the shelf to mature; we then finish them off with muslin and a pretty bow.
We have four puddings in our range:-
Ale and Carrot, made to a very old recipe
Stout, which is lovely dark and rich
Rum Cask Cider, the cider is matured in rum casks
Free From , gluten, dairy, egg, nut and refined sugar free
What better way to finish off your Christmas dinner than to have a delicious, moist round Christmas pudding, sprinkled with brandy in flames.
Blackberry Cottage Christmas Puddings are available in two sizes 450g serves 4 and 900g serves 8, larger sizes available on request, to purchase online go to www.blackberrycottagefayre.co.uk
