ROYAL PLUM PUDDING

This is a fairly traditional recipe for a Christmas pudding and gives instructions about tying off the top of the pudding bowl with string.  Mum always made a string handle to make it easier to lift out of the boiling water.  Easy to do – lay a double thickness of string, long enough to go about 10cm over each side, across the bowl and catch it in when you tie around the bowl, then tie the overlap to secure the handle.
