Leek Pudding

How to make leek pudding:

A typically English meal, probably dating from the 18th century. This dish was cooked in the time-honored way, boiled in a pot that no doubt contained the rest of the meal cooking in the same water. This would have included some sort of meat and other vegetables boiled in a string bag.

Ingredients

2 cups self raising flour

1/2 cup suet

a pinch of salt

organic leeks

cold water to mix

(see measure conversions for more information)

Method

- Put the dry ingredients into a bowl and mix together.

- Add some of the water and make into a fairly stiff dough.

- Take only the white parts of the leeks, clean them and cut into 1/2 inch lengths.

- Roll out the pastry into a large oblong shape.

- Put the leeks onto one half of the pastry and season with pepper and salt.

- Bring the other half of the pastry over the top of the leeks.

- Pinch all the edges together to seal the leeks in and then roll the whole lot up in a damp, floured cloth.

- Put into a pan of boiling water and boil for about 3 hours.

I make these and they come out great if you cook them in a slow cooker all day. Just put it in a ceramic pudding basin and cover the top with greased foil tie string around it leaving room for the pud to expand at the top. put in slow cooker with 2 inches of water in the bottom. takes 4 hours or can be left longer, so you can switch on and go to work knowing it will be ready for you getting in.

      A speeding danger driver who led police on a chase around residential streets has been jailed.
      Keith Wilson panicked when police tried to stop him because he knew he had no licence or insurance.
      For 20 minutes he sped around the streets of Bedlington, Northumberland, trying to outrun officers at up to twice the 30mph limit.
      Police deployed the force helicopter to keep track of him until he finally gave up, dropped the keys out of the window and stopped.
      Now the 23-year-old, of Hollymount Avenue, Bedlington, has been jailed for six months after admitting dangerous driving, failing to stop and having no insurance or licence.
      Newcastle Crown Court heard it was just after 7.30pm on Saturday, December 12 that Wilson was spotted by police driving fast in a silver Audi A4.

      Okay, just disowned my bro over this one. we got on talking about what we used to eat at home and touched on banana sanwiches. (Which i still luv.) Now as far as I'm concerned there is only one way to eat a 'nana sandwich. You get a slice of bread, squash banana onto it, then fold it over until the banana is oozing out the sides, then you eat it.
      But my bro says he puts...ugh....sugar on his...puke, vomit...but worse still margarine...aargh! What a wimp; what a culinary crime. Please tell me others don't do this.

      It features something called Northumberland Pan Haggerty, which I've never heard of. Has anybody else?
