TWELFTH NIGHT Plum Pudding Butter ⟡ dried fruits, red wine, brandy

A popular spirit-soaked confection served across the British Empire, plum pudding (or Christmas pudding) is an enduring holiday tradition where a mixture of spices, dried fruit, and candied citrus rinds is combined with eggs, breadcrumbs, and suet before being liberally doused in alcohol. Popularized during the 16th century, it became a common feature at Twelfth Night celebrations, and previously contained meats, grain, and root vegetables before the public gained increased access to imported goods.

While the inclusion of these savoury additions may have been left in the past, other, more folkloric traditions persist. There are superstitions surrounding the exact methods of preparation and presentation (like 'Stir-up Sunday', when family members stir the Christmas pudding-to-be), and tokens like beans or coins are oftentimes hidden throughout the pudding to predict (mis)fortune or elect a ruler for the night—a tradition traced as far back as the 1300s.
