what, no plums?!
Samina.Tapia's picture
Plum pudding is an English steamed or boiled pudding usually served at holiday times, particularly Christmas. Plum pudding has never contained plums. One may ask why then is Plum Pudding called Plum Pudding when there are no plums in it? In the 17th century, plums referred to raisins or other fruits from the plum family like prunes, currants. "Dried plums, or prunes, were popular in Puddings and Pies, in medieval times, but gradually in the sixteenth and seventeenth century they began to be replaced by raisins.
