I took myself across Manhattan to the West Side shop Meyers of Keswick and bought a few of the suggested puddings from the obliging clerk. This was the first of my samples; a mini-pudding that has a strong molasses flavor but which is moist and contains no animal byproducts. I liked it well enough, but there will be more to come which the clerk assured me were her favorites.
The brandy butter was a delicious addition. Though, I would suggest giving it a good go with a mixer before serving it, as my brandy appeared to be weeping out of the butter the longer it stayed out of the fridge.
