If I'm correct, it's a British dish that is a steamed-type pudding with currants and such. Where'd you find it, keltin? It seems like an unusual food for your geographical area.

I haven’t found any yet, at least not locally (but I did find plenty for mail order). I saw this posted on another forum. At first, I thought it was one of those gag product labels that someone had doctored up, but apparently its real. After reading about it, it sounds tasty......I just don't think I could tell someone outloud what I was eating.....especially not on the phone.

Katie is spot on. Have never had it but hear it is delicious. It is a British steamed pud with currants, also known as spotted dog. Supposedly the term dick and dog both refer to dough. So the dish is a whitish dough with raisins, sorry currants. And so spotted dough, or dick or dog.

Buy a number of British foods, but have never seen spotted dick.

Hope you enjoy it.

Is there a full moon tonight? Keltin, you rambunctious fellow, you might want to remove your spotted dick from the can before you microwave it. (Do I dare post a reply to Lef's Richard Gere post?)

How odd to see this now. About 3 weeks ago while shopping I saw this at the grocery store where I shop. They have a small section with many imported items and several made by Heinz..I'll have to look see if it's still there..They also had a bottle that looked like a lemony colored mayo that was a dressing of some sort..Humm..I need to look closer the next time. Who knows what you might be missing
