Figgy Pudding at the Stillman Inn

Yes, it's true...we made Figgy Pudding and so much more here at the Inn for our family Christmas. Wish we had a picture but we had so many people and so much food it just didn't happen.

Basically we went to "You Tube" to see how it was done. Then we went to http://www.allrecipes.com/ to select a Figgy Pudding recipe of which there are many and they are highly varied in what goes in and how to cook it. This is the first time, and we just love first times, we have "steam cooked" something and it was very interesting. You can use the oven or steam the pan in a pot on the stove.


We got lucky. Our bundt pan fit into one of our old cast iron pots. The lid was tight and perfect. We did have to check it regularly and add water to the cast iron pot to keep it steaming. We were brave and used a bundt pan that we put lots of cooking spray and butter on. We had heard it was hard to get the pudding to release once cooked. But that wasn't the case. The only disappointment was when we went twice in the recipe to set a flame to it. It was a very small flame that lasted only seconds. We expected something bigger. Oh well.


It was actually quite good. It didn't take long for us to make an educated guess that "Figgy Pudding" is simply bread pudding. We had fun and it was interesting. Would only do it again for traditions sake...if we decide to make this a tradition!


So come and stay with us next Christmas and sing out "We won't go until we get some, we won't go until we get some, we won't go until we get some so bring it right here"!
