Christmas pudding made 45 years ago found in house
A Christmas pudding made 45 years ago has been found in a house - but is still as "delicious" as ever.
The traditional dessert - created from fruit, breadcrumbs, and brandy - was originally made for a festive wedding in 1969 but laid untouched until it was discovered by a family clearing out a late relative's kitchen in Nottingham recently.
Despite the four-and-half decades that have passed since it was baked, the alcohol-based pudding proved it still packs a punch after scientists from the University of Nottingham's microbiology department tested to see if it was still edible.
Professor Christine Dodd, from the university, said: "It was a little dry, but had a very good flavour. It was sealed in a traditional way and looks fine."
