Why? Because you can! And pickle, and jam, or otherwise celebrate the resurgence of the domestic arts our forebears held so dear. Put on your best apron and step into our kitchen, won't you?
I’m often asked about the best things to forage in a given season. In Autumn, there’s lots to choose from, with berries, nuts and fungi of all types in abundance.
Chestnut Brandy is a fantastic present to give someone during these chilly months. You can get away with using a cheaper brandy here so don’t start reaching for that special bottle of Armagnac.
Chestnuts are super tasty and very easy to forage. Make this Chestnut flour as a brilliant present for gluten free friends.
Ever wonder what you can make with Chestnuts? Here is one idea: Chestnut Chutney with Red Onion and Fennel. Great on cheese and bread or spruce up some of those Thanksgiving leftovers.
Silky, slightly sweet, and flecked with vanilla seeds, this chestnut butter is good for breakfast or for adding to holiday gift baskets.
Chestnut cream is a decadent, rich and addictive pleasure. If you've only been roasting chestnuts consider this pressure cooker recipe an intervention!
Make your own infused spirits (whiskey, cranberry, chestnuts and cinnamon) for this delicious Thanksgiving drink.
It's never too early to plan a memorable holiday gift or dessert. Get ready now and beat the squirrelly crowds...
