Limey,
Can I ask a couple of questions..???

If someone were to go to make this pudding,
where would they go to get the suet??
A. Grocery store?
B. Can they substitute anything instead of the
suet if they couldn't find suet in their area??

Just curious..
Also, What are Saltana's

Hi Weezie ,
You may not like this but sultanas are another tpye of seedless raisins.Suet you can buy from the butchers shop or your meat counter its the fat from around the kidneys.
Sorry

Limey,
To be honest, I was thinking the type
of suet, like my mom fed the bird's
in the winter time. [Embarrassed] [dunno] [lala]
Thought a lard or something could be substituted!
[dunno] I didn't know!!!

And you got it,
meat!!!! [Razz] [Razz] [Razz]

The raisin's sound ok!!

What would happen if you left the suet out??
Consistancey not the same?? Or does it solidify
up with that stuff??

Just curious!! [kitty]

Hi Weezie,
Yes, the same stuff Mom used to feed the birds,it won't hurt you(puts hairs on your chest)
Don't know what would happen if you left it out or put lard in.Remember where lard comes from.

Hi Weezie,
O K I'll do the Christmas Cake but I'm not getting into the almond paste and icing of it just the RICH FRUIT CAKE.We also made it when the 2 girls got married for the wedding cake.I did the icing for them. I'll type it up.
I guess i could get to Wallys with about a 30 mins car ride from my place.
