To make a plum pudding to ev'ry one's taste.
So all may be eaten with nothing to waste,
Take of raisins and currants and bread crumbs, all round;
Also suet from oxen, and flour a pound,
Of citron well candied, or lemon as good,
With molasses and sugar, eight ounces, I would,
Into this first compound, next must be hasted
A nutmeg well grated, ground ginger well tasted,
With salt to preserve it, of such a teaspoonful;
Then of milk half a pint, and of fresh eggs take six;
Be sure after this that you properly mix.
Next tie up in a bag, just as round as you can,
Put into a capacious and suitable pan,
And boil for eight hours
Then you'll have a plum pudding for Christmas Day!
