Plum pudding recipe

Mix* 1 cup each
whole wheat flour,
raisins,
chopped almonds,
currants,
chopped apples,
chopped dried figs,
chopped dried prunes,
chopped dates,
wheat germ,
honey,
together with
2 eggs,
2/3 cup milk,
3 cups real butter**,
and 1 teaspoon each
allspice,
cloves,
coriander,
cinnamon,
grated orange or lemon peel.

Pack loosely into wide mouth jars within 1 inch of top. Screw top on tight. Boil jars for 3 hours in a canner. Empty immediately into molds and let set hard. Do not pour off liquid in jars, which will quickly be re-absorbed by the pudding (and that's a good thing).***

*This is a goosh-with-your-bare-hands deal. There's no easier way to do it.

**Don't try this with cold butter. Let it warm up and soften first.

***Plum pudding is fairly dry as it is, so you don't want to lose any of the moisture! Dump the whole soggy mass in your mold(s).
