I have also been working on a Christmas Order Form for one of the local schools who are having a rest from Christmas Puddings this year. They have issued the forms to all of the parents and are expecting orders to flood in over the next couple of weeks - I hope so! I am also preparing an order form for my business with lots of fresh products - lemon curd, butterscotch sauce, pesto, things like that. It is a great time of year to be making some of these specials, makes a change from chutney. I started off a big batch of candied peel today which is incomparable to shop-bought peel and delicious both in cakes and mincemeats but also eaten as a sweetmeat - maybe dip the ends in dark bitter chocolate. A great after dinner treat with some home-made liqueur like bramble brandy or marmalade gin.
