The only tradition: Brussels Sprout Dip

Advantages: Suits us
Disadvantages: Some still like their Turkey dinner

Review of My Holiday Meal 2013

Blackcurrants + a little Sugar = Microwave Jam!

Advantages: Freshly picked taste! low sugar; No slaving over preserving pans; less washingup; makes creative gifts.
Disadvantages: Need Microwave; your fingers get filthy topping/tailing; the jam gets eaten too quickly

Two years ago, I had finally managed to pick all the blackcurrants from the bushes in my front garden! It was a backbreaking job to "top and tail" all the blackcurrants - it was a bumper crop for five bushes. Some were so small that the berries were alm ...
