A Victorian Christmas Advent Calendar: 22nd December

Mrs Beeton's Puddings

“Engaging servants – This important business is usually thought a pleasing excitement by one class of mistresses, who are constantly changing, and who do not know how to appreciate a good servant; or a dreadful trouble and worry by those who are idle or careless.”
From ‘Beeton’s Every-day Cookery and Housekeeping Book’ by Mrs Beeton (classmark 1872.7.371)
