Really, what the heck is figgy pudding? We have heard of this Christmas tradition that always come up in the carol "We Wish You A Merry Christmas".

You know the words right? "We all want some figgy pudding".. etc..

When I was a kid Fig Newton's used to turn my stomach, not to mention a pudding derivative of the fig.  My mom used to can figs when we lived in Alabama when I was a kid and I like those, especially on her homemade buttermilk biscuits.

So I went online and found a recipe for figgy pudding, check it out here. My question is this, have you ever eaten the "legendary" figgy pudding? If you did, was it good? Let me know.
