At some point there should be making of persimmon pudding. Which is somewhat like fig pudding, I should think, and quite good. And I have these persimmons, see, which should be puddingized before they go bad. (Or frozen, I suppose, if there isn't going to be pudding.)

::big eyes::

I don't know what fig pudding is like. It sounds a little dubious, frankly. I know what bread pudding is like, and rice pudding, but I can't see how to substitute fruit in there.

The British definition of "pudding" is somewhat different from the American one, and this is a British pudding. It's more of a moist bread/cake sort of thing -- if the persimmon pudding I know of is anything to go by, it can be reasonably accurately described by saying that the pumpkin cake we made the other day is about halfway between a standard cake (i.e. Duncan Hines yellow cake mix, or what-have-you) and a pudding.

Given that the British pudding I am familiar with is the Yorkshire pudding, I can't say that "It's a British pudding" is what you'd call reassuring.

The pumpkin cake comparison is helpful, though.

Agreed. English puddings are somewhat dubious. Of course, I'm half convinced that a great number of English dishes were conceived while drunk.

It explains the names, anyway. "An' we'll call it --" ::falls over, continues speaking from floor:: "An' we'll call it BUBBLE *hic!* BUBBLE AND SQUEAKIESszzzz...."

"We do not negotiate with Christmas terrorists."

Also a good response for dealing with Trick or Treaters.
