Wartime Christmas Pudding recipe

We thought we’d share the fascinating Christmas card we received from the Imperial War Museum London.

A new exhibition at the Imperial War Museum London opens in February called The Ministry of Food which explores life during food rationing in the Second World War. The Christmas pudding recipe reflects the ingredients which would have been available at the time.

Any volunteers to cook it?
