Gran always made sure only the best quality dried fruit went into this mix, and she would put the pudding on to boil before she went to church early on Christmas morning. Several hours later, when it was finally served up, it was the supreme highlight of the year for us all, surpassing all the other goodies from Gran’s kitchen!
