November 2014

November is the month to cook with......

Pumpkin Seeds - put your cleaned pumpkin seeds on a Medium Round stone and place in the oven for 15-20 mins at 180°C with salt or sugar for an amazing tasty alternative to popcorn.

Garlic - use our garlic slicer and garlic press to add garlic to lots of warming dishes to help fend off the cold!

This month's featured recipe is quick and easy, and brilliant if you need something to take to a party or for a wee present.

I often make this nut free for fairs and folks with nut allergies and its just as delicious!
