Free From & Festive: Christmas Past

Free From & Festive is back! Well, it is December and Christmas is looming at an excessive rate. This week, we're concentrating on traditional recipes, those foods that make it feel like it's really Christmas; mince pies, Christmas pudding, mulled wine. It's time to dust off our Granny's recipe cards and whip up an old favourite.

Claire at The Gluten Free Notebooks has dug out her mum's low fat mince pies recipe and given them the gluten free treatment. This really is two recipes in one, a delicious mincemeat and a light sounding citrus shortcrust pastry.

Nothing says Christmas to me like trifle for breakfast and Carly at Gluten Free B has channelled her inner 80's goddess to bring this retro offering. She's even included a brilliant recipe video for your enjoyment which is Wham-tastic!

Over on Domestic Sluttery, I have made a traditional Scottish Clootie Dumpling. It's probably more traditionally eaten at Hogmanay, but many Scottish families eat it instead of Christmas pudding on the big day itself.

So what are your favourite Christmas recipes? We'd love to know what you'll be making in the run-up to the 25th.

Next week, we're sharing our gluten free foodie gift recipes and if you want to join in you can email me for details.
