How do I store my delicious Plum Pudding?

Our puddings are vacuum sealed and can be stored in a cool, dry cupboard until the best before date (usually up to two years).

Do I need to prepare my pudding in any way?

Absolutely not! All our puddings are fully cooked, you just need to heat and serve.

How do I heat my Plum Pudding?

Preferred Method

Place a heatproof saucer in the base of a saucepan. Remove the pudding from its outer packaging (box or fabric) and place the vacuum sealed pudding onto the saucer, then add enough boiling water to reach two-thirds of the way up the pudding. Bring back to the boil then simmer, covered, for approx 30 mins per 500g. Ensure that the water does not dry out. Open onto a serving plate with care, as the pudding will be hot.

Alternative Methods

Steamer: Remove the pudding from its outer packaging (box or fabric) and place the vacuum sealed pudding in the top of the steamer over boiling water. Steam for approx 30 mins per 500g

Microwave (by serving): Remove pudding from all packaging and cut it into serving sizes (approx. 125g), and heat it slice by slice. Microwaves differ in power and the pudding can heat quickly in the microwave, so start with 30 seconds per serving as you don’t want to ‘pop’ all the fruit by heating too long.

Slow Cooker: Set slow cooker to HIGH, remove the pudding/s from its outer packaging (box or fabric) and place the vacuum sealed pudding/s into the slow cooker, add enough boiling water to reach two-thirds of the way up the basin. This method will take longer, but the timing is less critical as you can leave the pudding for many hours without "popping" the fruit. Check how hot it is by pushing a metal skewer or knife into the centre, hold it for 5 seconds, then pull it out. The tip it should be hot to the touch. If you have a cooking thermometer, the pudding should reach approx 70°C in the centre.
