Excuse me??!? I certainly don’t mean to offend anyone here that may find this the most appetizing thing on the planet, but what the heck is this? I thought that this was joke at first, you know one of *those* gag gift type of jokes. Or it seems like something that should be on Bizarre Foods.
Wikipedia to the rescue. “Spotted dick is a steamed suet pudding containing dried fruit (usually currants), commonly served with either custard or butter and brown sugar. Spotted refers to the dried fruit (which resemble spots) and Dick may be a contraction/corruption of the word pudding (from the last syllable) or possibly a corruption of the word dough. Another explanation offered for the latter half of the name is that it comes from the German word for "thick," in reference to the thickened suet mixture. It is a cultural part of English Cuisine."
Hmm…Interesting. So can anyone report on this?
What kind of response would I get if I said "Hey honey, how about some spotted dick for desert?" lol I don't know about him, but I certainly don't think I would take a fork to it if someone asked me that!
