I loved, loved, and loved this challenge. Since I used to make my own lard, making my own Suet was no big problem. I had a harder time getting it.
Still after having to wait 2 weeks for my Butcher to have what I so much needed it was super easy to have the first part of my suet puddings finished.Knowing that it would hold better up to the transport I made a baked Jam Roly Poly. At first I wanted to make a steamed one but knowing my children and the love they have for crust I just knew that this was the way to go.
The Roly Poly was filled with the last strawberry jam from last year and sprinkled with brown sugar. Served with a little fresh whipped cream it was a nice dessert.
Next time I will steam the Roly Poly because I think that this will help the flavours, not the forget that the baked one was on the dry side.
Next I made the Marmalade Pudding, again using the homemade jam. This was so delicious I not even wanted to share. Using my Grandmothers pudding form and the potato steamer for this task made it so easy and uncomplicated that I from now on will do it a lot.
