Hi, I made the pudding in a slightly too large Pyrex bowl with its own lid and wrapped it in paper and foil and string. I followed the instructions and after the 5 hour cooking time removed the pudding and its lids and left to cool. When it was nearly cool I replaced the lid, added a parchment circle of paper on the pudding and resealed. Is this ok? Thanks MC
Hello! I live in California, USA, and here we can't find pudding steamers off the shelf easily. I would also like to give Christmas Pudding to my friends and family this year, but can't afford so many ceramic bowls. I'd like to steam my puddings in Rubbermaid containers, which have rubber linings around their lids, but am unsure about it. They seem to be the equivalent of your plastic pudding steamers in England. They are made for the microwave and are dishwasher safe, so I'd like to think they could work with steaming. Any thoughts? Thank you!
Hi, I've just come across the Ultimate Christmas Pudding recipe and all the comments sound amazing. It does say make up to 6 weeks in advance, but will I still have the same result or is there anything I should do differently, if I am only making it 3 weeks in advance? Thanks!

A cheesecake maker in Australia has told me they use Neufchatel soft cheese . The only cheese I know like that is Neufchatel from Normandy but this is expensive and has a rind on it. So could you enlighten me on the best cream cheese to use please in the making of cheesecakes please? I do live in the moorland area of Lancashire so I am no where near London shops
