Day 44

Figgy Pudding

I wanted to whip up some figgy pudding this year, mostly because my 11-year-old thinks Christmas carolers demanding this obscure treat (with a very silly name)  is a hilarious moment in music history. I picked up some dried figs at the grocery store, thinking that figgy “pudding” should be pretty easy. It’s not. (And it’s really more cake than pudding.) After scanning some rather baffling recipes on the Internet, I settled on a faux version that relied heavily on carrot cake mix. Not very traditional, but pretty darn good. I didn’t even have to eat around the figs — they’re easier to stomach than raisins. And rum-soaked almonds are always in season. So Merry Christmas. And pass the pudding.
