I was feeling rather smug having made the pudding, boiled it for eight hours in the bottom oven of the Aga. It smelt wonderful as it cooled down to be stored ready for Christmas - obviously the Jack Russels thought so as well as mistakenly the Larder door was left ajar and they helped themselves to it. They are feeling rather poorly this morning having eaten it all.
