Baked Red Cabbage

Baked Red Cabbage

This piquant red cabbage dish is always better if made the day before. It is popular in Denmark on Boxing Day. We like it as a side dish with a slow roast belly of pork.

Cranberry and Orange Muffins

Cranberry and Orange Muffins

Cranberry and Orange Relish

Cranberry and Orange Relish

Juicy. piquant and delicious! A relish is cooked for a shorter period time than a chutney and does not need to be stored and matured before eating, which makes this the perfect quick and easy recipe for Christmas. Wait for the fresh cranberries to arrive in the shops and make some for yourself and some to give away as a gift. (If you can bear to part with it) The recipe makes 3 standard size jam jars (378ml/1lb)

Pork Pies

Pork Pies

  • Complexity: advanced

Quincemeat

Quincemeat

This recipe is inspired by Nigella but I have adapted to keep it very fruity. The ratio of quinces versus the usual cooking apples is greater in this adaption and so the storing time may be reduced. I keep my quincemeat in the fridge but a cool larder would do. This recipe will make about 4 kg and is best made in a mincer if you have one. If not a food processor will do, but go steady and don't over process or you will have pulpmeat.

  • Time: 40 minutes
  • Complexity: medium
