Last Minute Whisky & Ginger Mincemeat (Citrusfree, NutFree & Vegan)

Last Minute Whisky & Ginger Mincemeat (Citrusfree, NutFree & Vegan)

For those of us who have to avoid some or all citrus fruits, Christmas can be an interesting time of year.  (I challenge you to find a mince pie that is void of candied peel)  But add to that mulitple allergies AND a dislike of brandy and to be honest most festive treats are out of bounds.  Even if you scour the freefrom aisles!   This Last Minute Whisky & Ginger Mincemeat is allergen free, vegan friendly and takes just 20minutes to prepare.  Sticky, sweet, sour and with a spicy kick from the ginger ale its packed full of festive flavours making it a great alternative to the traditional mincemeat. (Dairyfree, Eggfree, Vegan, Soyfree, Glutenfree, Nutfree)

Edible Gifts: Quick Onion Chutney

Perfect for last minute Festive get togethers with friends, my Quick Onion Chutney is amazing with vegan cheese & piled high on crackers, uses everyday store cupboard ingredients AND is ready in just 20minutes! Its Dairyfree, Eggfree, Soyfree & Glutenfree too! The true beauty of this chutney though is how quickly you can make a batch, obviously the low sugar content & no salt is an added bonus, but when you are throwing together a last minute festive feast, the speed is definitely welcome!  Oh and did I mention is it is ridiculously easy to make too?? Honestly the hardest thing about it is shredding the onions – which is completely optional as this would be just as nice with haphazardly cut diced onions!
