Last year's Christmas pudding -- resteam and eat?

bgbc | Dec 22, 2010 05:14 PM

Not, I hasten to add, a half-eaten pudding, but a whole pudding stored, covered with greaseproof paper in a ceramic bowl in the back of my fridge since last December. It's dried out a lot (shrunk away from edges of the bowl) but smells fine--quite good, actually. I think I probably used butter, not suet, but am not certain.

Despite growing up hearing about puddings made at Easter and stored, my family's no help here as I inherited the job of pudding maker a long time ago -- and am wondering if this one's likely to taste OK or whether to make a new one...
