This is a simple dish, needing little preparation.
Care should be taken when chopping the nuts or use ready chopped.
This dish reflects the gathered seasonal food typical of early farming communities. The milk (mainly from goats) would have been a relatively new addition to the diet.
We have evidence of hazelnuts being gathered and prepared, from the archaeology of the period. This dish would have contained bilberries, available in Europe from 5000 to 3000BC. We were not able to locate bilberries, so have used the closely related blueberry which was available in, what is now known as, America at this time.
To make this pudding yourself you could use any seasonal soft fruit available such as blackberries, redcurrants or strawberries.
