MUNDANE MYSTERIES: What exactly is “figgy pudding”?

It’s that time of year, we’ve all heard the song “please bring us some figgy pudding… please bring us some figgy pudding…” but what exactly is figgy pudding? Would I even want it?

It actually does sound kind of tasty. It’s a rich boiled pudding cake made with flour, suet, figs, and other dried fruit. Some people put rum or brandy in it too.

Here’s a guy making it… looks easy to bake too. Maybe this is the year I try it out!
