Figgy pudding is a white Christmas pudding containing figs. It can be boiled, steamed or fried. This moist pudding dates back to the 16th Century. It also appeared at the end of A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens – at Bob Cratchet’s Christmas table. Figgy pudding was made even more popular by being included in We wish you a merry Christmas. This year it might make a refreshing change to your traditional Christmas pudding, as it is equally festive.
