The Spicery's Countdown to Christmas!
It's never too early to start preparing for the most wonderful time of the year! Count down the days till Christmas with us, by making (and enjoying!) one spicy Christmas treat each month, beginning in September through to December!
The recipes are designed to fit in with each month's needs - whether it's using up excess apples in your garden in September or giving your pears enough time in advance to pickle in November, or even fitting in some last minute baking in December on Christmas Eve! All you need is a handful of fresh ingredients and our special Countdown to Christmas spice blends, listed as a link in each recipe (some jolly Christmas tunes while cooking might not hurt either!).
So, what are you waiting for? Let the countdown to Christmas begin!
Boxing Day Chutney
There’s nothing like a good chutney to go with a Christmas cheese board. The key to making a quality chutney is a combination of the main ingredient with vinegar, salt, sometimes sugar and very often spices - which not only provide layers of flavour but also have strong antibacterial properties (helping them keep for many weeks and months!). This one is full of warming spices like cassia and mace and the flavour even improves over time.
