Christmas Pudding by Ohn Mar Win

Hertfordshire, GB

Read More...

No British Christmas is complete without a Christmas Pudding. Early Christmas puddings contained meat, as well as onions, wine, spices and dried fruit. The tradition of Christmas pudding did not appear in England until introduced to the Victorians by Prince Albert, husband of Queen Victoria. By this time the pudding looked and tasted much as it does today. Although some feel it has fallen in favour, it has an iconic role in vintage Christmas themes.
