quarter pint xmas puds

I will not have time to steam puddings traditionally and would like to use my pressure cooker. If I put in six samll puddings in plastic pots with lids on how long do I pressure cook them? how much water? and do I use a weight. Thanks

Pressure cooking

Yes, you will have to use a weight or you will not be cooking at pressure.

This is from my original Prestige book.
Individual puddings 150g of mixture. Steam 10 minutes (no weight)then Cook at H pressure 50 minutes. It says reduce pressure SLOWLY after cooking.

Reheat at H pressure 10 minutes

1/4 pint christmas puds.

I know this isn't the answer your looking for, and you have probably made them already.

BUT, i can highly recommend this recipe.

http://www.deliaonline.com/recipes/cuisine/european/english/mini-christmas-puddings.html

I make these (doubling up) every year, along side a traditional pud.

And delias mini's go down a treat, a nice and light texture, cook in no time too...And yes they freeze perfectly, i have re-steamed them in my electric steamer and in the oven, both methods work brilliantly.

and we have eaten the last puds in July with no adverse effects.

Where do you get your tubs?

Just looking into making individual puds and have found some ramekins at £1 each but wondered where you get your plastic tubs and how much as these would be lighter and cheaper when posting out to friends and family.

1/4 pint christmas puds.

you can get little plastic pudding bowls with lids from most supermarkets (tesco have small ones well mine does - it is quiet a large store), amazon also sell them. and also, if you have the type of shop in your high street that is the next stage up from poundland - you know the type i mean they sell dustbins and pegs and all sorts. they are an aladdins cave of this type of product - great for mini steak and kidney puddings too. saves all the faff with greaseproofing the top of puddings and double tin foil, just pop the lid on, just remove after first steaming and wash and replace when puds have cooled down.

where to buy

you can get six quarter pint pots with lids at Lakeland for 4.99 in the shop or on line from them with postage added.

plastic tubs for puds

I bought mine at Lakeland a couple of years ago. They had them in different sizes, little n large(r). They come with snap on lids and have proved very useful for freezing too. I.e, I cook larger amounts than needed (say, bolognese sauce, curries, stews) and freeze several portions.
