Sales of this Christmas pudding have exploded in the UK, where it sold out in stores and is fetching prices upwards of £250 on eBay. It's not just any Christmas pudding; it was created for the chain Waitrose by Heston Blumenthal, the celebrated chef, and it's all the rage. However, as The Telegraph UK points out, making the pudding yourself is half the fun. Read on for a link to the recipe.

This recipe envelops a candied orange in a dough studded with dried fruits, almonds, and grated carrot and apple. Steam the pudding for 7 hours and await the magical moment to cut into the mound to reveal the whole orange. It looks spectacular!
