A feast of red and purple to liven up an otherwise dull and grey day today. With the record breaking drought and much concern about climate change, I wish it would really rain - not the half-hearted efforts we've seen lately.
The round shaped packages wrapped in cloth are traditional plum puddings. Even though a northern hemisphere hot Christmas feast doesn't make too much sense in the heat of an Australian Christmas, and we usually stick to cold meats and salads, I am a sucker for plum pud. With custard. A true culinary highlight care of the Brits!
