Catholic Recipe: Plum Pudding Rum Sauce I
Also Called: Christmas Pudding Sauce
Christmas dinner ends with the serving of the plum pudding, which was prepared the first week of Advent. Here is the recipe for the plum pudding sauce. In England after 1644, plum puddings were forbidden and declared fit only for heathens. I am sure those reformers would have changed their minds if they had had enough of this sauce. I have often doubled and tripled this recipe, so use your own judgment.
Beat egg white, rum, lemon juice and sugar. Add butter and beat hard. Fold in whipped cream. Serve cold.Recipe Source: Cooking for Christ by Florence Berger, National Catholic Rural Life Conference, 4625 Beaver Avenue, Des Moines, IA 50310, 1949, 1999
