Personal Notes:
My Mother made this every year that I can remember for Christmas. We all loved it and waited anxiously for our Christmas dessert. I don't think my Mother ever made it until she married into the Cohoes family. One of the highlights of the Christmas Season for me was to have Plum Pudding. It has been several years since we had it. This year I bought a pudding mold and intend to make it again for my family.
