Tomorrow is known as Stir Up Sunday, when tradition suggests we make the Christmas Pudding
There is a myriad of recipes for Christmas pud, but the traditional version would contain 13 ingredients to represent Jesus and his disciples.
Sometimes charms or coins were (and still are) added and were said to bring luck if you found one in your portion (unless you broke your tooth on it of course!) Find out more about this tradition here.
Our classic recipe, from the Dairy Book of Home Cookery, has been enjoyed by families since the 1960s.
If your copy of the book has gone astray or is looking a little worse-for-wear, why not treat yourself to a new one? Find out more.
And don’t miss our fabulous competition!
