Recipe for a suet pudding

My husband, from Essex UK, talk with great awe about a suet pudding his grandmother used to make. From the little he is able to tell me it is a savoury item served with roast dinner or stew, they were in a bag (muslin I am guessing), they came out out of a big stock pot...... I am Scottish and the closest I can imagine is a mealy pudding, which he admits is close. I am just hoping that someone out there that knows what I am talking about!

If none of your countrymen come through for you, you can always Google it. But first this might make for interesting reading for those here in the States.


Suet pudding - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

It doesn't sound like anything I would want to eat.

We, in Scotland, have is a similar pudding called a mealy pudding and is oatmeal based, but I would love to make something close to my husband's childhood. I hoped by putting Essex someone might know something as his family go back generations from the area and the recipe is unlikely to be from outside the area unless it is from Suffolk/Herts.

I'm wondering if they were suit dumplings? If so, then that is simple. I can give you a recipe but there will be loads if you google it. I put a teaspoon of dried mixed herbs in mine or a pinch of colmans mustard powder inwith the flour. These 'dumplings' are delicious but, of course, also a grand way to " fill up" a hungry family when times were harder. Not the same as the wonderful 'Cloutie' of course but just as good on a cold winter evening with a good beef stew.
Hope this helps?

It is not your spelling, it is the keys. They jump under the wrong fingers. My keys do that all the time.
