Pat Robinson - 500 Plum Puddings and counting

In early November Matt paid a visit to Pat Robinson's kitchen in Charlottetown. It was a busy spot, as it has been for the past dozen years in the lead up to Christmas. Pat makes and sells plum puddings. In fact, hundreds of them, all in aid of local causes. And this year was a record-breaker. She had to up production and worked for close to six weeks. Matt dropped back out to see Pat for an update.
