They can be "savoury" with meat in them or sweet, for dessert. If you have ever visited "Pioneer Villages" and seen how much bother it was to work with pre-modern ovens, the attraction of having something cook in a relatively predictable pot of water and steam becomes more obvious.

But the two most famous ones are likely responsible both for Steamed Puddings being remembered, and disparaged. Christmas -- or Plum -- Puddings, made dense by all the fruit and nuts in them, often have to be made ahead, let mature for weeks, and then steamed for up to 8 hours, and history is sadly full of memories of unsuccessful Christmas Puds.

So, what little people do know about Steamed Puddings boils down to a lot of work for something yucky. Most Steamed Puddings, though, are delicious, can be assembled in under half an hour, and require only around 2 hours steaming during which you can do your nails and flip through Cosmo.

Cooking Tips Part of the reason Steamed Puddings are now so neglected is the impression that they are very complicated, or take a good deal of work. Nothing could be further from the truth. Making one is actually very easy and requires no special tools, and is even far less work than a fruit cake.

The long and short of it is that you line a bowl with a crust, pour a filling in, cover and steam. With some puddings, you even skip the crust bit. However, with the humble Steamed Pudding now being a thing of mystery to many people, here is a detailed discussion of the "techniques". The bowl In North America, it is getting much harder to find proper pudding basins with the thick, homey rims on them.

Once common-place, you now have to look in higher-end cooking supply stores. The trick is just to get the right size and shape. Pyrex bowls work just fine. In a pinch, you could also use a cleaned-out coffee can. Leave the bottom on, discard any plastic top covering, of course, and get rid of any paper on the side. You just want a plain big tin with the bottom still on. Be careful as the tin will be hot. You will probably want to present the pudding lying sideways like a log, rather than standing up like The recipe will tell you.

The steamer You can buy special steamers just for steaming puddings -- again, from high-end cookware stores or mail-order catalogues. If you do have a steamer, or want to buy one, great. Otherwise, find a saucepan or Dutch oven or stock pot large enough that the pot cover will still fit on when you place your proposed pudding bowl inside it -- and one that you can easily visualize yourself safely removing the bowl from when the pot is full of steaming water. The pudding will cook unevenly.

You need to think of something to keep it off the bottoms such as a trivet, a tuna fish tin with top and bottom cut out to act as a stand, a good wedge of crumpled up tin foil, etc.

Take your proposed stand into account when figuring out how tall a pot you have to use. You have to allow a good 20 minutes to build up a head of steam in there. Fill the chosen pot with water such that the water would go half-way up the side of your pudding bowl. If you feel that will need some kind of reminder that the water in the pot will need checking on, you can put a clean metal jar lid, or a marble, into the bottom of the bowl. When the water gets quite low, the object will start to rattle about and alert you.

Ones that call for a crust are usually savoury puddings. When a crust is called for, it is basically a pie crust with a little more fat in it, plus a bit of oomph to help it fluff a smidge -- either through adding a bit of baking powder, or through using self-raising flour. In a medium-sized bowl, you mix together the dry ingredients for the crust generally flour, baking powder and salt -- or just flour and salt, if you have self-raising flour. Use your hands to blend the fat butter and shortening, or suet into the flour.

Add a little cold water at a time until the dough hangs together -- it should have the same feel as pie crust dough. Roll out the remaining dough on a floured surface into about a 10 inch 25 cm circle, to about the same thickness as you would for pie crust.

Use your hands to line the buttered pudding bowl with the dough circle you have just made. You may have to nip and tuck it here and there; you may even have to piece bits in, and no one is going to notice or care.

Next you pour in some kind of filling see below. When your filling is in, you put on the top layer of crust. Older pudding recipes that have a crust seem to call for beef suet in the crust. Beef suet is very hard to get in North America, so you can try substituting shortening.

But using half shortening and half butter should just about get it right. Covering the pudding Cover the pudding with a layer of waxed paper that is wider than the top of the bowl by an inch or two on each side, and then by a piece of tin foil about the same size.

Many food books will tell you, at this point, "tie the covering securely with string just below the rim of the basin, and make a string handle on either side of the bowl to help you lift the pudding out later". Instead, you can just crimp the edges of the tin foil to snug everything into place, and lift it out with oven mitts later. Cooking the pudding You have your pudding all wrapped up now like a little parcel. Place it in the pot you are going to steam it in. Turning the pudding out onto a plate When done, remove pudding from the pot, and remove the waxed paper and foil from the pudding.

Take a knife and loosen it around the edges without gouging into the crust or pudding. Place a plate on top of the bowl. Put your oven mitts back on, if you took them off, and invert the plate and the bowl together so that the pudding now rests on the plate. Stick-to-the-dish disasters, such as happen with cakes, etc, are very rare with Steamed Puddings.

Safety Always have a healthy respect for steam. Be very careful around it, especially if you are wearing a short-sleeve shirt or blouse as even one short blast of steam can give you quite a smart. When you take the lid off of pots of boiling water, always tilt the lid away from you so that the steam will blast out in a harmless direction. And use hot mitts when placing the pudding in, and when removing it from, the boiling water.

When removing the pudding at the end, turn the burner off, remove the pot cover again, tilting away from you , and let it be for 2 to 3 minutes for all the steam to go away.

Then with oven mitts on, remove the pudding and place it on a hot mat. Oven Steaming You can steam your pudding in the oven -- this is particularly clever to do if you are making more than one at a time. You need a deep roasting pan. Put the puddings into the roasting pan, fill carefully with boiling water to come halfway up the sides of your pudding basins, and cover everything with a big tent made of tin foil. The intestines were only available when an animal was slaughtered, and required a good deal of work to clean them before they could be used.

Pudding cloths were lined with suet and flour, the mixture was poured into this, the cloth was tied up and then boiled under water for hours. When it was boiled in a cloth, it came out sphere shaped. With the advent of the cloth technique, Steamed Pudding making in England started to take off. Steamed dessert puddings that rose such as Christmas or Plum pudding, or Sponge puddings , would not have been possible before the invention of baking powder in America, in the mid-nineteenth century.

Language Notes The word pudding starts with the Latin word, "botellus", which meant sausage, and sausages used to be, as you remember, encased with the lining of animal intestines or stomachs.
