Figgy Pudding & Mincemeat Pie
Some friends came over last night with 2 very traditional Christmas desserts. Diana made the figgy pudding which is cooked by steaming it for four hours--crazy! It tasted delicious, with an unusual and interesting texture. It's more like a cake than a pudding, but it's the most moist cake you will ever eat.
The mincemeat pies were delicious too, and just from the taste, you would never know that there is meat in them--venison, to be exact. Jennifer went to a butcher at Pike Place Market to buy the venison and the suet (which is a type of animal fat). The mincemeat pies taste like a rich, complex apple pie, and they are very filling.
