Giveaway & Review:
Betty’s Christmas Plum Pudding in Ceramic Pudding Basin
I know, I have mentioned the “C” word, but, Bonfire Night and Remembrance Sunday have passed now, and it is only 43 days to Christmas day, so I think I am allowed! Plus, I have some lovely NEW Christmas Gift and Baking recipes to share over the next few weeks, as well as some old favourites. Now, I am a Christmas Pudding maker – every year I make my Traditional Victorian Christmas Pudding, and I always make it on Stir-Up Sunday too……but, when I was offered a beautiful Christmas Pudding to try from Betty’s, (my favourite tea rooms in the whole of the UK, and NO, I am not exaggerating, I LOVE Betty’s and I have a long and tasty relationship with this Yorkshire company) I decided I would have a year off making my own pudding and this Christmas we will all be enjoying this VERY luxurious Betty’s Christmas Plum Pudding. However, not only am I going to enjoy this pudding with my family this year, but so are one of my lucky Lavender and Lovage readers too, as Betty’s have very kindly offered me another Christmas Plum Pudding to offer as a Giveaway prize on my blog…..
“A proper pud, full of plums, apricots and sultanas and presented in a ceramic bowl.” – Ideal Home magazine.
This beautiful pudding comes in its own collectable ceramic pudding basin and is made with dried whole plums, cranberries, apricots and sultanas soaked in Yorkshire Stout……..I am sold already! One pudding serves 6 to 8 people and weighs 780g, which, in old money is about 1 and 3/4lbs, so a nice BIG plum pudding! But don’t take my word for it, this pudding is featured in “House Beautiful”, “Country Home and Interiors” and “Eat In Magazine”. It costs £19:95, but do keep in mind that is an artisan pudding and is stuffed full of booze and fruit, and does come in a ceramic bowl and not a plastic one, so I feel for the quality and size it’s well worth splashing out on one of these festive beauties. If you would like to order one anyway, the posting dates are as follows:
Last order dates for Christmas are: UK Mainland 19th December, EU 5th December, Rest of World 28th November.
