Champion Marmalade Days
CEDRICS® brings a taste of autumn to the table
Black cats, pumpkins and All Hallows is upon us. The darkening of nights and the clocks going back signals winter is firmly on its way. It is the me for snuggly woolly jumpers in front of large roaring fires. CEDRICS® plump, homemade vanilla marshmallows are perfect to enjoy with a rich, smooth hot chocolate. Try them toasted to that golden brown, oozing stage on a beguiling open fire, of course there is also the possibility of ending up with scorched, smoking edges when you’re not looking, but this only adds to the fun of the season.
On the crisper, Jack Frost mornings, treat yourself to our Overall Champion Award Winning Beekeepers Marmalade, it’s the best according to Taste of the West 2018. Made with whole oranges, never pulp, and Somerset honey, our marmalade spread thickly on hot buttered toast makes for a memorable breakfast or snack at any me of day. A teaspoonful can also be mixed with hot water, with or without whisky for a Hot Toddy to ease those pesky throats that abound at this time of year.
Bonfire night is for families to gather and enjoy time together perhaps with some mulled cider or local organic apple juice. Bake a gammon ham and glaze with our decadent marmalade and serve with roast potatoes and steamed cavolo nero for a nourishing meal to ward off the cold nights.
Leftovers can be served the next day, as cold cuts with our Gold Award winning Pumpkin Beer chutney. Autumnal spices including cinnamon are slowly simmered together with pumpkin and beer for many hours until just right, and are then potted up and le to mature in a dark place. They are too tempting just to keep for yourself, why not give one or two jars as thoughtful presents, a homemade gift for food lovers without the time spent cooking! Our Pumpkin Beer chutney is also the perfect accompaniment for that leftover Christmas Turkey, which is not too far away!
No family meal would be complete without dessert. In 2012 we were privileged to present one of our rich, sweet, moist Gold Award Winning Somerset Cider & Apple Cakes to Her Majesty the Queen. Why not share one for pudding served with custard or if you prefer, our Taste of the West 2018 award winning Carrot and Orange Cake with clotted cream. If the decision is too hard to make why not spoil yourself and enjoy both over the coming colder days! Have a happy and safe bonfire night from all at CEDRICS®.
