Dear Chef James,
How do I steam a plum pudding. I’m new at this.
Thanks a million. L.
There are special pudding molds for making plum pudding. You can find them online at CreativeCookware.com or Amazon.com.
I highly recommend using the special molds.
But you can put the pudding in buttered bowls, filling about 2/3 full put a piece of wax paper on top.
Cover the bowl with several layers of heavy duty foil and tie it firmly.
You will need a pretty large covered pot to set the pudding in, add enough water to come a third of the way up the sides of the container.
Cover the pot tightly, bring to a simmer and steam.
* Be sure to check the kettle once in a while to be sure the water hasn't boiled off.
