Step by step instruction of cooking Christmas pudding with a compote of cranberries and apples
I found another option: cranberry and fresh apples. Personally, I love it. I hope You will like it! In fact, he is "highlight" this recipe!
Cranberries grind into a puree.
Using a sieve Express the juice.
Cake put in a pan,
Fill with water and bring to a boil.
Meanwhile, cut the apples in cubes.
A decoction of klucinova of the filter cake, the cake throwing. It is now exactly nothing!
Cook the compote until ready apples. It took me about 20 minutes because the apples are finely chopped.
Add otrajeny first cliquey juice and mix well. Here apples are still swirling after mixing, so the photo came out slightly blurred.
Cool. Uzvar is ready! Plus its that at the end adds a fresh cliquey juice without any heat treatment that preserves all the vitamins! True, and you should drink it in 1-2 days.
Christmas pudding is traditionally made of wheat, as it is considered a symbol of eternal life. But there are recipes Kuti rice and even pasta. I still prefer wheat.
Wheat in the evening rinse well several times until, until the water is transparent. Leave in water overnight.
In the morning drain the water and again cover with water in a ratio of about 1:3. Add a pinch of salt and cook over low heat, stirring occasionally until tender wheat. Everywhere it is written that the wheat is cooked for 1-2 hours, but I got it within 30 minutes was ready. Ready wheat to cool.
Raisins and poppy seeds steamed with boiling water.
Mac small portions to grind in a mortar.
Mac needs to give "milk". Sorry for the creative mess on the table.
Dried apricots cut into cubes.
It is best to take lemon and orange slices, they are denser and not "smeared" the Christmas pudding. Marmalade, as well as dried apricots, cut into cubes.
Nuts I wanted not ground in a mortar, and minced with a knife. I took quite well, non-traditional cashews. Still festive dish and "to" him to put what tastes better :D
Combine with the wheat, raisins, dried apricots, marmalade, poppy seeds and nuts.
In a glass compote dissolve the honey.
Add the compote with honey to pudding and mix well. Leave to infuse.
Put the pudding in a pretty dish, pour the compote in a pretty pitcher or carafe and put it on the table next to ten more meatless dishes! Yes, let Christ descend into every home in this Holy Night!
