That´s the reason, I write about that, Sven. Meanwhile there are Christmas cards returned to sender occasionally. No good sign.
I talked to Martina and she likes the idea of a U.K tour next year.

I've just discovered steamed "puddings"... in particular I'd like to try a 'suet' pudding.

Problem is... can't find the proper suet. Vegetable shortening (like Crisco, etc.) isn't acceptable.

Can somebody provide me with a source?
Amazon sells groceries now... they've got the Atora Blue mentioned upthread. Yum, fat by mail.

I have old friends here in the States that I haven't hooked up with for years. My BEST friend from high school being one.

You may found or purchased your suet by now, but if you are or anybody else are still searching:

I highly recommend the British Food Depot (https://britishfooddepot.com/), where they have a ton of ex-pat stuff. The vegetarian Atora Suet is there on sale for $1.50, 200 grams (about 60 % off).

Also try the English Tea Store (more than just tea) - https://www.englishteastore.com/

Hope this helps!!
