The Christmas pudding sold at Port Colborne Historical and Marine Museum’s Grand Old Christmas Festival is so popular, people will line up before the event starts just to get a can of it and its accompanying sauce.

“We sell out every year,” says Michelle Mason, the museum’s assistant curator, adding Arabella’s Tea Room has been serving plum pudding and sauce at the museum since 1980.  

She says volunteers at Arabella’s were busy carefully measuring the secret ingredients to make the puddings — about 400 of them — that will be sold during the festival and pudding and sauce week.

A helping of pudding in the tea room will cost is $5, with a coffee or tea. Take-home puddings are $6, and $2 for a container of sauce, and are only available at the festival, Sunday, Dec. 3.

Arabella’s will be open noon to 4 p.m. during the festival and 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. for the remainder of that week.
