Steamed Suet Pudding

1 cup finely chopped suet
1 cup molasses
1 cup sweet milk
3 cups flour
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. cloves
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
1 tsp. soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup raisins
1/3 cup chopped pecans
2 Tbsp. finely minced citron

Mix suet and molasses together. Sift flour, spices, soda and salt three times add to molasses and suet alternately with milk. Next add floured raisins, chopped nuts and floured citron. Mix all well together and last stir in an additional 1/4 cup boiling water into which 1/2 teaspoonful of soda has been dissolved. Pour dough mixture into baking powder cans and steam 3 hours, filling cans only half full and placing top on cans. (my note: remember these used to be all metal cans - do not do this with today's plastic lids!)

I found another card for steamed suet pudding that was just a list of ingredients and one that grandma seedmed to prefer. The only note in making is that it only needs to be steamed for 2 hours.

1 cup buttermilk
1/2 cup chopped suet
1/2 cup molasses
1 cup butter
3 cups flour
1 cup raisins
1 cup currants
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp. soda
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. cloves
1 tsp. allspice
pinch of salt
