    8 ounces flour
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1 teaspoon baking powder
    4 ounces chopped suet
    3 ounces sugar
    4 ounces currants (or raisins)
    Milk (to mix ingredients)

    Sieve flour, salt and baking powder together. Add the suet, sugar, and currants (or raisins) and mix with milk to make a soft dough. Place this soft dough on a greased and floured pudding cloth and shape into a roll. Roll up the cloth and tie both ends, leaving room for the pudding to swell. Steam for 2 1/2 to 3 hours. Serve with custard of jam.

    Despite the innuendo, i really have been wanting to try it just for schnitzngigglez.

    I think i'll make it sometime and not tell anyone what it is until after.

    I'd eat it if it didn't have spots.

    Every passing minute is another chance to turn it all around.

    Ya know, in my quest for new and unusual foods (and yes sometimes that backfires in serious ways) - I ran across a spotted dick in the tin in a local market last weekend. Had it in my hand even to purchase and then put it down. Some day I, too, shall have a spotted dick (especially if someone else says it's good).


    <edit> ooooo just realized/saw it contains dried fruits - especially raisins - and I do not like dead fruit bodies.

    Don't care for spotted, would rather have treacle pudding, problem is have not found any place around here that sell's suet.

    I am lucky in that a few shops around here still cut and trim meat, so they will save the tallow if requested. I have had to make the suet from scratch, though.
