This is an old family recipe & tradition. I hate alcohol & cherries, but come Christmas-time, I just can't not have this pudding. I've been gobbling it up every year since I was a child. It's just not the holidays without it. I would make it year round, but I doubt my figure would appreciate it :) Preparation time does not include cooling.
