Hi Nigella Team, I am making a few Christmas puddings for friends and family. I had made two today and I used plastic pudding basins. I have two of the enamel pudding basins, is it ok to use these as well? I am a little worried being metal - they will be maturing for five months! Thanks in advance Mark
