as you often say, Izzy, two countries separated by a common language! Not a plum in sight in that recipe for this Yank.

how many years do I have to serve in HRH's Navy to get the rum?

Navy rum is a dark rum that used to be issued to all ship's ratings as a daily ration.... It is a usual caribbean rum but distilled to British tastes, I suspect!

Plum in this sense is any preserved or dried fruits...

This was really posted to really muddy the waters re British 'puddings'!!!!

I'm muddied as well. What are mixed spices (similar to pumpkin pie spices?) and what's a pudding basin?

Don't quote me Andy, but I think it is a mix of cinnamon, allspice, cloves, ginger and nutmeg! We just buy it in a small pot!

A pudding basin is a basin for making puddings in! Usually it is narrower at the bottom than the top, can be pyrex or pottery or even metal.

I bet the pumkin pie spice would work. Sounds like pretty much the same mixture.
