Figgy Pudding Recipe

Yes Virgina, there is a Santa Claus. And, yes Virginia, there is a myriad of Figgy Pudding recipes.

Originating in England in the 16th century, Figgy Pudding can be baked, boiled, steamed, and even fried. There is a wide variety of ingredients that you can put into Figgy Pudding. But, it all begins with figs.

Similar to Fruitcake, Figgy Pudding is sticky and gooey. It is different from Fruitcake, in that it does not keep long. Fruitcake on the other hand, can be kept for a long time, and is humorously rumored to be kept for years!  More on Fruitcake

Make some Figgy Pudding this holiday season, so your kids can sing "... bring me some figgy pudding..."
