Bring Me Some Figgy Pudding
I have always regarded the traditional English Christmas pudding with an eerie fascination. It sounds pretty disgusting, and yet I kind of want to try it, but certainly not enough to go to all the trouble of making one myself. So, where in the (metro-accessible) DC area can I get such a thing, even (in fact, preferably) just a slice, and how much might it cost me? Thanks!
Rodman's now has a large selection of English Christmas treats, including various sizes and flavors of Christmas puddings (traditonal, brandy, rum, etc.) You boil/steam them per the instructions on the container.
They also have fruitcake like cake with a thick layer of white frosting that is from the UK. They have large and small sizes of the puddings so not much lost if you get a small one and don't like it. They also have jars of the brandy sauce that goes on top of the pudding. I love Rodman's.
