“The pudding is composed of many dried fruits held together by egg and suet, sometimes moistened by treacle or molasses and flavored with cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, ginger, and other spices. The pudding can be aged for a month, months, or even a year; the high alcohol content of the pudding prevents it from spoiling during this time.” [wikipedia]
