The festive season is upon us! Banish the stress from your Christmas food prep with Prestige’s fabulous Christmas hacks!

Dreading starting your festive food rituals?

Feeling overwhelmed by all the hosting ahead? Fear not! We know how important maximising quality time with the family is, especially at this time of year. So, we’ve put together our Christmas kitchen hacks to ensure your Christmas is as spectacular and stress-free as can be.

So firstly, lets tackle the most challenging of the Christmas spread; the pudding. Traditionally a dish which takes hours to prepare and even longer to cook, most don’t even attempt make it themselves. No longer does this need to be the case! With a Prestige Pressure Cooker, your Christmas Pudding preparation time can be reduced to just 10 minutes. All ingredients can be thrown in and left to transform in less than two and a half hours. A wonderful Christmas pudding and with barely any washing up, what could be more appealing? So take the weight off your shoulders - with pressure cookers available from as little as £34.99 and the endless culinary possibilities they provide, get yours ahead of the rush!

Now let’s consider the essential festive drink – sweetly spiced mulled wine. Again, Prestige’s Pressure Cooker comes to the rescue. There is nothing like the fragrant aroma of warm mulled wine to get you in the Christmassy mood. Prepare a homemade batch with just four simple ingredients: Red wine, cinnamon, nutmeg and fresh orange zest, leave them to simmer and enjoy!

Now for something more substantial. Spruce up a hunk of ham and add some seasonal sweetness using your cupboard conserves. Why not give Prestige’s Baked Marmalade Spiced Ham recipe a go? Taking only 20 minutes to prepare, this dish delivers effortless, glazed perfection. A magnificent table centre-piece and delicious whether served hot or cold.

What makes the perfect traditional accompaniment to your Christmas lunch? Here at Prestige, we aren’t interested in serving up the ordinary and December is the time for extravagance. Bling-up your Brussels by leaving them to roast in beautiful balsamic and sprinkle with pomegranate rubies to finish. Totally complete in just over 30 minutes, there’s no reason every component of your meal shouldn’t be fantastically flavoursome.

Although Christmas is the time for feasting and indulgence, it can also be the time to make your treats healthier too: Embrace one of Stacey Solomon’s healthy hacks and replace your butter for avocado or coconut oil - you won’t be compromising on taste.
