Stir It Up!


Willa, Floradora and Henrietta stirred the pudding mixture…




…and Jane packed it into the Pudding Basin.



Six Hours!

The Hittys boiled theirs for six hours along with the Human puddings…

Happy Stir Up Sunday!

  1. Jane could open a specialty food store. She makes such unique, ( to me anyway) enticing and scrumptious wonderful foods. It’s nice that she teaches the Hitty’s her recipes and cooking tips.
    I am always enamored with her bowls, pots, pans and dishes.

    • Jane does like to cook for the masses! She also likes using all her fancy kitchen equipment, and especially enjoys making holiday treats! Making the Christmas pudding is lots of fun because of Stir up Sunday and because it is one of the days where everyone wants to help out!

  2. I’m glad to see that traditions are observed in the Hitty cupboard, and Stir Up Sunday is still a thing. So many people have never experienced a home made Christmas pudding, nor even know the reason why it’s called Stir Up Sunday. Jane is a very good example to us all 😊

    • The Hitty cupboard is full of traditions, making (and eating) the English Christmas pudding is one of our favourites!! Jane is full of knowledge, and is happy to teach any of the Hittys that want to spend time with her in the kitchen!

    • Stir Up Sunday is the last Sunday before Advent, when the collect from the Anglican Book of Common Prayer says: Stir up, we beseech thee, O Lord, the wills of thy faithful people; that they, plenteously bringing forth the fruit of good works, may of thee be plenteously rewarded. This is also the day Christmas pudding is assembled, stirred and boiled, so that it has about a month to settle before being set on fire and eaten on Christmas Day!
