Dear Barbara: I was watching a Christmas movie right before the holidays and they were talking about plum pudding. I’ve heard of it, of course, but what exactly is it? — Marilou from Lodi
Dear Marilou: Plum pudding was and is served in England. I don’t remember ever seeing it on a holiday menu here in the United States. Most of the English call it Christmas pudding now because it is usually made at the holidays.
