I made this today for afternoon tea. Friends came over and we had it on teabread - mmmmm yummy. When I made it I put a portion into a cute jar so that my friends could take some home with them as they had never had it before. When I was a child my Nanna made this every Christmas and would let my sister and I have some on a Carrs Table Water Biscuit as a treat when Mum wasn't looking. I also remember the Christenings of my little sister and the children of my Mums cousins all having Rum Butter as part of the celebrations, this being a West Cumberland tradition.
Must get myself a proper Rum Butter Bowl!
Thanks for the recipie:-)
I made this and spooned into pretty pots and gave to my neighbours along with mince tarts for Christmas. All have asked for the recipe. I served with hot Welsh cakes - very yummy!
