Jam Roly-Poly

Source

Jam Roly-Poly is a traditional British pudding probably first created in the early 19th century.  It is a flat-rolled suet pudding, which is spread with jam and rolled up, similar to a Swiss roll, then steamed or baked. Jam Roly-Poly was also known as shirt-sleeve pudding, because it was often steamed and served in an old shirt-sleeve. Another nickname was dead-man’s arm.  That’s a little gross but I thought I would share that!
