I am hoping that the great minds at GR will be able to help me like they have done in the past.
With the passing away of my mum, she bequeathed to me the task of doing the family Christmas pudding. It started with my great nan and has now come to me. So I am the 4th generation. Unfortunately as I dislike Christmas pudding it is one of the few cooking things I am out of my depth on.
What I am perplexed about is what type of pudding basin should I cook it in? All I know is that I need a 2 litre basin. But I have no idea on what I should be looking for. Should it be ceramic; aluminium or stainless steal?
As I am looking to a trial run for Christmas in August any light that could be shed on this would be gratefully appreciated. Plus you will get the eternal gratitude of my entire family who love Christmas pudding.
Thanks in advance for any help.
