Advent Calendar of Christmas Memories 2015

December 5: Christmas Recipes

My very favorite Christmas food was my Nana’s steamed pudding with hard sauce. It was dense, moist, and filled with candied fruit, then smothered in  sweet, creamy, liquor-filled icing. I loved it.

I’ve tried making it several times, but it hasn’t lived up to the pudding of my memories.

This photo was taken at my Nana Keene’s house, my dad’s mother. I loved going to her house; it was exotic for this country mouse, with arches, a sun porch, and a magical fold-out ironing board/kids’ table. If you look closely, you can see the Christmas pudding standing tall in the middle of the table.

Now, I know what I’ll be making for my holiday dinner!
