As you can probably tell from the thread title, we've found a Christmas Pudding.
It is simpler than it looks.

Barely started maturing, that.

Of course you should eat it! But not necessarily this year.

There’s one from Dog knows where in the freezer at Fort Larrington which the Prof and I are both utterly convinced we et in 2022.  Our hypothesis is that there’s a wormhole in there which terminates on PudWorld.  Phone the clever buggers at CERN and the Nobel Prize Committee.

We have one in the cupboard that’s pre-pandemic. Made by my sister. It’s either maturing nicely by now or swarming with botulism.

Problem is we always seem to acquire more puds than we eat. I make my own and then get given them as gifts well. My sister’s ones are very good, I must admit.

There's so much sugar in a Christmas pudding that nothing will grow in it and it's dense enough to keep out any oxygen that would turn the fat rancid. If anything is going to grow on it, it will be mould on the outside, but that's unlikely as the pud will soak up any surface moisture.

Two years is as nothing.
In the Best Before thread, I posted (Xmas 2021) that I'd just eaten a Christmas Pud that was 14.5 years beyond its BBE date.
The pud was fine, the pot of Ambrosia custard that I had with it (16.5 years past BBE) was definitely past its best, but didn't poison me.

Someone at work is clearly under the delusion that 'best before' means 'Don't Eat Even If It's Just Before This Date Let Alone After Or You Will Die Horribly'. Three times in November/December I found bags of perfectly good food in bins, including a load of cake & cereal bars plus five Christmas puddings (one M&S four Huntley & Palmer) which were dated January 23. Had the M&S one a couple of weeks back, and nothing wrong with it.
