At this time of year if you have a garden there will be lots of fresh food around. I’ve been working on my Chilli Chutney recipe today as a way of using up some of the tomatoes and chillies we’ve managed to grow this season. It will be great to put a few jars away and enjoy this with the remains of the turkey and other cold meats at Christmas. I hope to get some time to type up this recipe and share it with you at the weekend.
In the meantime if you’ve got any great recipes which use fresh ingredients from this summers harvest which we can enjoy at Christmas please let me know. (If you don’t want to post a comment just see my e-mail details on the about page.)
If you haven’t got a garden you can still spread the cost of Christmas by buying a few bits and pieces each week, for example jars of pickles, mincemeat, dried fruit for your Christmas pudding and Christmas cake etc, these all have a long shelf life and will see you up to when you need them at Christmas.
