Christmas superstition has it that any person who stirs the Christmas pudding mixture may make a wish and have it come true - though only if they stir the mixture clockwise. Further superstition has it that all the household, even babies, should take a turn stirring the mixture three times, to ensure the household prospers in the New Year.

Christmas was banned in Boston, Massachusetts from 1659 to 1681 and anyone found celebrating Christmas was fined five shillings. This was because of the Puritan pilgrims' belief that it was a decadent celebration 'consumed in compotations, in interludes, in playing at cards, in revellings, in excess of wine, in mad mirth ...'

Originally, a sherbet was a non-alcoholic drink, usually based on a fruit juice and called 'sharbât' in Arabic. The beverage entered Italian cuisine under the name 'sorbetto', which in its French incarnation became 'sorbet'. During the 19th century the sorbet became an ice to be eaten rather than drunk, and the cheap powdered form emerged in England at the end of that century.

A South-east Asian tree produces a fruit known as football fruit, because it grows to the size of a football. Also known as pangi, kepayang and pakem, the fruit's taste has been compared to that of durian fruit. It's not to be eaten lightly though. Its seeds are so poisonous they are sometimes used to kill rats!

The manketti or mugongo nut is often harvested from elephant dung. African elephants happily eat the nuts from the trees but cannot actually digest them, so they are returned intact. Despite their unusual journey to the table, the nut pulp, when cooked, is said to taste of apple sauce.
