Tiptree Christmas Pudding and Brandy Butter
Christmas pudding topped with brandy butter is a British Christmas staple for households across the UK. This traditional, sweet dried-fruit pudding has a long history, dating back to medieval times. It is also known as plum pudding or figgy pudding.
Tiptree Christmas Pudding is from the highest quality ingredients including French brandy and Tawny Marmalade. Each pudding is hand filled in an earthenware basin, covered with a tie-on cloth and cellophane wrapped before being placed in a rigid box ready for steaming or microwave cooking. Tiptree puddings will taste better if steamed. If you choose to use the microwave oven, be careful not to over-cook.
Brandy butter is typically served cold atop hot desserts, such as Christmas pudding, to provide a contrasting taste. Tiptree Brandy Butter is a sweet, rich sauce consisting of sugar, unsalted butter, and brandy.
