The suet in Christmas Pudding
I have been making Delia Christmas pudding for decades with many compliments.
I just realised that I've probably been doing it incorrectly.
I thought that shredded suet was beef suet and Ive been going to my butcher to get my suet fat. Have to order it as no one has suet anymore. He sometimes shreds it, otherwise, I just grate it.
Now reading what to do for a vegetarian friend that wants one of my famous puddings, delia online mentions you can get a GF suet. Now, Ive far as I know, beef suet is only fat, which made me think that Delia meant to use the packaged suet mix you get off the shelves from a supermarket.
This might explain why my puddings have a lot of fat runoff when steaming. They taste great.
So, to be sure, does shredded suet mean the block of fat you get from the butcher or the suet mix you get from a supermarket?
