      Is there a difference between vegetarian suet and vegetable shortening?

          It says it's shredded and it contains wheat flour, so apparently diff from veg shortening.
          The same company, Atora, makes a regular suet with beef fat. Just a heads up.

        If you'd be at all interested in looking at another recipe, Julia Child's plum pudding is amazing and vegetarian (with eggs, though). http://voices.yahoo.com/julia-child-recipe-plum-pudding-4144549.html . She uses butter and bread crumbs to make the suet-y texture. It's a traditional recipe, and tastes very authentic.. This is a vegan version of that recipe: http://www.mothering.com/community/t/... .
