Recipe by KennKonn

Posted as a request. I havent made it but have enjoyed it every year at Christmas. Its not Christmas without my mom's carrot pudding. She reheats it in the jars in the microwave with a piece of plastic wrap over the top, stirring occasionally till hot. Serves it with a hard sauce and whipping cream. Prep time is approx, Cooking time is processing time in the canner.

I want to thank you KeenKoon for coming to my rescue and posting this recipe. I followed the instructions exactly - they were well written and easy to follow. I have never made a carrott pudding before and made these as a gift - I can't award stars until I hear how they were enjoyed. Will post additional review & stars after Christmas
