A Different Canned Food for Variety


While checking out the different canned food products that are available, this canned food item was found and looks interesting. I have no idea what the shelf life would be. It is probably similar to most other canned goods. You may want to check this out for your canned food storage to add some variety.

Heinz Spotted Dick

Spotted Dick is a steamed suet pudding containing dried fruit, usually currants. The dessert is especially popular in the United Kingdom, usually served either with custard or with butter and brown sugar. Spotted refers to the currants (which resemble spots), and Dick is a corruption of the word dough.
Canned pudding anyone?

Staying above the water line!

As to the shelf life of this odd (to Americans) named product, it'll probably outlive you.

See the articles about how long canned foods will store at http://www.internet-grocer.net/how-long.htm

Thanks. But you're preachin' to the choir here. Most people are well aware of the long shelf life of cans. Thanks for the reminder though.

Canned Dick sounds kind of like Grandma's Suet Pudding. Just missing the Butter Rum sauce. Found the recipe in her hand written cook book about 20 years ago. The sauce makes it.
