Chestnut stuffing

January 10th, 2013 · No Comments

I know, it’s the middle of January so it’s unlikely any of you lot (dear readers) are going to want to digest anything referring back to Christmas, Christmas dinner or any of its associated trimmings. But trust me, in 344 days, 2 hours, 37 minutes and 55 seconds (at time of writing) you’ll be desperately […]

Vegetarian gravy

December 31st, 2012 · 1 Comment

If you don’t have access to the rendered fatty juices which have oozed from the roasting flesh of a recently slaughtered animal, making a decent gravy can be quite a challenge. A vegetarian gravy requires time and attention to build up a sufficient depth of flavour, so I suggest you make this in advance and/or […]

Mulled cider

November 11th, 2012 · 2 Comments

Obviously you don’t really need to be told how to mull cider as like us you’ll just explore the deeper regions of your spice cupboard and gather together whatever seems to conjure up memories of Christmas. Then you’ll discard anything that is more than a year out of date, guess how much of the remaining […]

Gravalax the 3rd way – Beetroot

January 23rd, 2012 · No Comments

It’s taken a while to write up this, the third of our festive gravali because to be honest I got a little over excited at the fishmonger’s (Paul, Todmorden Market) where I bought the salmon and ended up with 1.5kg of the stuff. Delicious as it was (and this beetroot version was the tastiest of […]

Gravalax the 2nd way – Ginger spiced

January 9th, 2012 · No Comments

Obviously our enjoyment of Christmas was seriously curtailed by the devastating news of Prince Philip’s hospitalisation – thank God the BBC ran half-hourly news bulletins to keep us up to date with every nuance of this never-changing national cataclysm. Here at Yumblog Cottage we tried to keep our subjective peckers up by preparing and scoffing […]

Grogg

December 17th, 2011 · No Comments

Despite being grammatically only one letter away from Glogg, this is actually a toddy far removed from its near namesake. The alcoholic element can be supplied by either Rum, Brandy or as in this case Kirsch – we had some left over from our post-modern ironic fondu phase. Less of an infused libation and more […]

Wintery Pimms

December 14th, 2011 · 1 Comment

We had some Pimms in the house, we wanted to make a new hot boozy drink, a recipe was found that indicated a potentially minimal expenditure on further ingredients in order to fulfill our warm Pimms dream. After no debate apple juice was bought.

Christmas Panna Cotta

February 7th, 2010 · 1 Comment

This recipe was featured in the Fat Bastards Hairy Bikers ‘The Twelve Days of Christmas‘ which aired late last year. We have gradually warmed to these two over the years, so when they signed off saying ‘if you only cook one thing this Christmas, make sure it is this Panna Cotta’, we knew we had […]

Review: Interflora Merry Christmas Tray

December 18th, 2009 · 1 Comment

Now we had no idea Interflora sold anything other than flora, so when they got in touch and asked if we’d like try one of their Christmas hampers we thought we owed it to you, dear reader, to say ‘Yes please’. Two days later we were sent the ‘Merry Christmas Tray‘ which we greedily hurried […]

Mince Pies

October 22nd, 2008 · 3 Comments

At Christmas I like a mince pie and a few years ago I found the perfect recipe in my Katie Stewart book. Last year I took the bold step of also making the mincemeat from scratch so this year I felt duty bound to do the same, only this time I held back and made […]

Mincemeat

October 22nd, 2008 · 5 Comments

If you’re making a multitude of mince pies for a mulled wine gathering and you just happen to have a large Kelner jar sitting in the cupboard then the excuses for not making your own mincemeat can be but few. It’s super easy to make, you get to marshall what goes in, to avoid any […]

Every December Dresden holds its annual Stollen Festival. It is a celebration of all things Stollen and involves among other things, electing the Dresden Stollen Maiden (Dresdner Stollenmädchen) and baking the world’s largest Stollen in accordance with the standards laid down by the Stollenschutzverband. This is a recipe for a stollen of more modest proportions […]
