Trellis on food

Dear Mrs Scrote, she writes, re your request for a recipe for a quick and easy pudding, the late Mr Trellis swore by his Spotted Dick. Here are the ingredients:
10oz Self-Raising Flour
5oz Shredded Suet
¼ pint) Milk
4-6oz Raisins
3oz Castor Sugar
1 Lemon, zest only, finely grated
Pinch Salt
If, like my late husband. you prefer a Plain Dick, just leave out the raisins.
Yours culinarily
Blodwen Trellis, Mrs, Widow, retd but still able to stir a pudding.

I've been searching the web for how to play Tin Can Murky. I remember playing it as a child and loving it. Now with kids of my own I'm keen to pass on the joy ... but can't remember how to play it for the life of me.

Put Tin-Can-Murky in to any search engine and you get only 3 references - one is your blog 31 July 2007. So please ... can you help and refresh my memory of the finer points of this very fine game.
