Bump this ..

This thread sure isn't doing much - I hope that doesn't mean that last year's experiments were a bust!

In any case, I haven't really got much further ahead since I posted that last message, but my Uncle wrote me not long after wanting to know if I wanted my Aunt's pudding basins .. well, I certainly did, and he's sent them to me!

Only one of them could really be called 'small', but I'm convinced they'll freeze, and I'll bet they can be warmed up nicely in the micro wave :-) No sense having all this nifty technology if you don't use it!

Here they are:

... it occurred to me (or maybe i saw it somewhere) -- could you make mini puddings in small (250mL) wide-mouthed mason jars? they would certainly stand up to steaming/heating no problem. would this work?

My mother makes hers in a one quart mason jar filled only half full. She's always done it that way, and until last summer when she was making it and I pointed it out, she had no idea that she was making a steamed pudding, she just thought she was canning it :smile: She stores the puddings on a shelf in the basement because the jar seals and it's fine come Christmas.
