Week beginning December 17th - A Christmas Menu

To celebrate the last full week of Christmas we will be selling a couple of different Christmas jams and have a heavily Christmas themed menu.

On sale at the moment are elderberry jam, strawberry jelly and probably the most interesting of the lot Christmas Jelly. Made from infusing Douglas Fir Needles, sliced oranges, cinnamon sticks and cloves with crab apples to make a fragrant syrup. Then later cooked with sugar until reached setting point and poured into sterilised jars and tightly sealed. Douglas Fir Needles are the needles found on pine trees and when infused can be made into a fragrant syrup or oil and used as Christmas essence for food products.

Christmas jelly is great on toasted crumpets or served along side a roasted fatty joint of meat as a condiment.

This time of year we also make a very special celebratory soup, Champagne and Camembert. If you haven't already tried this in previous years then I would recommend you come in and warm up with a bowl of soup and bread. But come in early as it never last long.

Please enjoy this weeks menu, because we have enjoyed making it and we will enjoy serving it to you.

Merry Christmas and see you in the New Year.
