Country families have always been fond of sweet puddings to follow their main meat, poultry or fish dish. These puddings serve a double purpose, providing sweetness which gives energy for heavy outdoor work, and also adding bulk to an often frugal main course. The ingredients most commonly used are those which are always to hand in the country - flour, bread, suet, milk and cream, soft fruit in season, or easily-stored apples and pears. Spices, dried fruits and home-made jams from the store cupboard provide a little extra sparkle for the simple recipes.
