‘Every year for the last 5 years I make these christmas puddings to give to friends and family. They're based on my mum's recipe but in true tribute to her I never quite make the same recipe year on year. This was one of the precious recipes I made sure she dictated to me in the weeks before she passed away. I don't remember making them with her as a child but there was always a Christmas pudding or two in our fridge come the winter, she loved Christmas puddings. This year I've used all of the delicious things I spent picking, preserving and discovering during lockdown.
The puddings contain; freshly milled wholegrain flour, milled on my tabletop mill with lovely grain from Greenacres farm; london foraged quince; Nocino made from green walnuts picked in the park; dried prunes, cranberries and golden raisins and the most delicious almonds, hazelnuts and chestnuts from european agroforestry projects.
A 500g pudding serves 2-3 very generously.’
