    Hello, Foodies,

    I haven't posted before so bear that in mind. darielB5, Upland, Southern California,USA.

    I want to try making my Great Grandmother's Suet Pudding Recipe. It is a
    Steamed type Pud. with raisins and a hard cinnamon sauce.

    But I have NEVER made it. I make a Deadly in Calorie's Trifle and have U.K
    ancestry in my family lines.

    I am unable to find Suet. Any Substitutes? Crisco Shortening? Lard,
    When my Mother made it in the 1970's and 80's we could find it.
    but now that it is 21 Century the local Grocery Store doesn't carry it.

    Thanks for any help.
    <>. Tah!!

    Apparently Crisco is the best choice, unless you have a friendly butcher!

    I would freeze some shortening and then grate it into the pudding! Can't think of any reason why that wouldn't work.

    I'd suggest freezing lard, then grating it and tossing the shreds in a tiny bit of flour to stop it sticking back together.

    Have you asked the butchers at your local supermarket? It should be available (it is in all the supermarkets in my suburban/rural area), but you have to ask for it - it isn't usually prepackaged on a shelf in the meats department. icon_confused.gif

    If beef suet isn't available, like other posters have suggested, I would use lard that is frozen and then grated/shredded into the pudding batter.
