ASIDE: whether or not the dried apricots are brown has nothing whatsoever to do with being organic, and everything to do with being oxidized. Standard methods to keep them golden are (if I recall) applying lemon juice or ascorbic acid (vit c) as an anti oxidant, and usually a little winemaker's sulfite (potassium metabisulfide, aka water purification powder), and storing in a low oxygen environment during processing until dried. Personally, if theyre brown, I dont buy them (prunes yes, apricots NO).
Last, although im sure the combo of prunes and apricots tastes great, im constantly amazed at how few recipes for figgy pudding actually have any figs in them. I guess it must be like hamburgers not containing ham, or hot dogs not containing dog meat.
The fact that you ACTUALLY USED PLUMS in this plum pudding is fantastic! Now THIS sounds like a Christmas pudding I could eat! And sliced, it looks wonderfully moist and full of plumped fruit. Most recipes I've come across sound so much like our American fruit cake, dry and tasteless, which is another tradition I avoid. Thank you for omitting the suet and raisins. I much prefer plump fruit over shrivelled and dry. Very excellent! This one I may try.
