    JustJanS's Note:

    I usually make a boiled plum pudding for Christmas, but the year my mother died, I found I didn't have the Christmas spirit to make one in the weeks leading up to Christmas. I made this the night before Christmas, and it's been a favourite of ours since. I don't think you need Christmas as the excuse to eat it-just hot days and 8-10 people to eat it. Prep time doesn't include the standing time, or freezing overnight

      Oh what a eonderful recipe.
      I did have trouble finding glace fruits, and could not buy glace apricots, so used dried apricots instead. I also used macadamia's instead of pecan's and chocolate ice-cream instead of vanilla.
      ........... Ohh how divine this was, on a hot muggy Christmas night.
      This just tasted like Tartufo Ice Cream, in flavour.......Which is my all time favourite Ice-cream...... Just gorgeous.
      Thanks so much Jan, I am using this every year from now on, and during the year also I suspect! ;-)

      Wonderful recipe!! I made this as an alternative to the hot stodgy puddings usually served. I will be making this regularly - not just at Christmas time! This recipe's fruit and nut mix could be adjusted to whatever you have onhand and it would still work out beautifully. Thanks for a really tasty addition to our Christmas table, Jan.

      Delicious and how is easy is this to make?! I used a hazelnut and lemon gelato instead of vanilla icecream as a base, and omitted the nuts as a result. Even put in some lucky charms ... Merry Christmas and thanks for a great recipe.
