Making the Puddings: 
  • Grease your pudding tins with butter. Make sure that you completely cover the inside of each tin.
  • Roll out the pastry and cut out large circles , enough to fit inside each pudding tin.
  • Line the tin's with the pastry.
  • Fill each tin with enough filling to the top.
  • Roll out more pastry cutting out circles large enough to make the lids.
  • Using your finger , wet around the rim of each pudding before crimping on the lids.
  • Tightly cover with tin foil to form a water-proof cover around each pudding.
  • Bring a pan of water to the boil, then place each pudding in the pan so that the water covers up to 1" from the top.
  • Then simmer for around 2 hrs , or until the pastry is fully cooked.

You will need to keep topping up the water every 30 minutes so that the pan does not boil dry ...
