English tradition has it that the person, or usually the entire household, that made the plum pudding would make a wish while stirring the batter. It could take upwards of 8 hours to steam and stir on the stovetop!
Sometimes a coin was added to the batter. The individual who found the coin (or a treasure) would gain prosperity in the New Year.
Plum Pudding, which was also called Figgy Pudding or Christmas Pudding, has evolved over the many centuries from the main meal to a yummy dessert.
In 1660, King George I, England's first German born ruler, was called the "Pudding King" when he requested plum pudding at his first English Christmas banquet.
So just like plum pudding has evolved, so did my husband and I when we retired from the education field and decided to begin our second careers as antique dealers and opened "Plum Pudding Antiques, Etc."
We hope that you find some "treasures" inside our Shops and we too can make some of your wishes come true!
Come see our two Shops, say 'hello' and enjoy seeing all our wonderful treasures and past memories of days gone by - and "no" we do not sell Plum Pudding but almost everything else!
Interesting fact: There were never any plums in plum pudding- ever!
