Fresh Filtered Water on Tap

How to make the most of your water filter system during the festive season

It’s that time of year again and our WFA Christmas elves are busy packing as many water filter systems as they can, to send out before Christmas. If you’re on the good list, and you’re lucky, you may well find a brand new inline water filter under the tree!

If you’ve already got a WFA water filter system, it’s a good idea to check if your filter cartridge is due for a change and order a new water filter cartridge in time for Christmas. One thing is for sure, your water filter system is set for a workout over this busy period!

We’ve covered festive preparation tips in the WFA blog before. Things like festive berry ice cubes and making your own carbonated filtered water ready for guests. These are all great ideas and the good news is that we’ve come up with some more …  just in time for Christmas!

Five ways to make the most of your water filter this Christmas … apart from the obvious!


1 Make a steamed Christmas pudding

If you celebrate a traditional Christmas then chances are that a Christmas pudding will be on the menu.

And if you make your own, you’ll know that making it is quite an intricate step-by-step process.

It often involves a few hours of steaming in a pan. Our advice is to swap your regular tap water for filtered water and use this recipe.

2. The best stollen sweet bread recipe

WFA-Christmas-stollen-bread We know that filtered water is better for making bread. This is because the chlorine in tap water can affect the yeast and the way the bread rises.

A German Christmas tradition is to make stollen sweet bread. So if you follow this tradition, we’ve found this great recipe.

Just swap the half a cup of water for filtered water and you’ll have the perfect tasting sweet bread for Christmas.

3. Better tasting gravy

Christmas isn’t complete without a turkey and the perfect complement to that is gravy. We love this simple recipe.

Again, use filtered water; it will make all the difference to the taste.

The festive season is also a time to indulge in a few drinks but how about swapping your cocktails for a refreshing non-alcoholic drink with filtered water?

TV chef, Curtis Stone has created this festive looking, fresh strawberry water with lime and mint with the main ingredient crushed ice.

WFA tip – Make sure you have filled your ice trays with filtered water the night before as this recipe requires lots of ice!

If you are lucky enough to receive fresh flowers around Christmas time, here’s a tip to keep them fresh for longer.

Give your flowers filtered water and change the water every couple of days. Your fresh flowers will last longer.

WFA tip – You can try this recipe too – add 2 tablespoons of vinegar and 3 tablespoons of sugar to a litre of filtered water. Then add to your cut flowers.

They’ll perk up and ultimately last longer.

By now you’ve guessed the secret to success with all these recipes is filtered water. If you want to use filtered water for all your kitchen needs then it’s a good idea to invest in a home water filtration system.
