Specialties Linen Wrapped Christmas Cake
"An elegant organic one-pound fruit cake,
perfumed with port and brandy."

The New York Times



Christmas Cake
Christmas cakes have a long historical tradition in England, as it's the celebratory cake that was eaten around the holidays in the depths of winter.

The depth of the ingredients, most of them expensive and imported from around the world, signified the wealth of the giver, who shared the cake with family and community, establishing a cultural bond and connection.

In the winter months we candy numerous types of citrus peels, and as in the past, post grape season, we dry several varieties of fresh grapes to make the raisins. These are combined with different stone fruits and all are macerated and plumped up in an aged port from Prager Winery & Port Works.

Almonds, spices, brandy and cake ingredients are then mixed in and baked into a fruit laden, richly flavored fruitcake.

The cakes are washed in a vintage plum brandy from St George Spirits before being wrapped in cheesecloth. June paints the outer wraps in green and red before a letterpress design is printed on it.

We proudly collaborate with local family farmers who provide us with the highest quality ingredients for our cakes.

Christmas cake was once eaten with meats and cheeses and today we also recommend it with tea or a glass of port or sherry.

To serve, please refrigerate until completely cold, and with a sharp knife slice thinly before returning to room temperature to serve.

Historically mincemeat was an English meat pie filling where dried grapes, apples, candied citrus peel and spices, were all soaked in port and brandy, before combining with suet (the fat lining the kidney of a cow) and venison to create a rich, deeply concentrated, meat pie.

Mincemeat is ideal as a stuffing for roasted pork loin, game hen, and traditional venison pie, or sweeter uses, such as fillings for tarts and baked apples.

We are delighted to offer both a traditional version made with beef fat and a vegetarian one made with sweet butter.

Spiced Butternut Squash Spread
A silky smooth and dense butternut squash spread, warmly spiced and rich tasting.

Entering cooler days and wintertime this spread will enhance the turkey at Thanksgiving, brighten a pot of beans, be welcomed on a pork chop and become that dollop on top of a steamy bowl of savoury porridge - and more.

This fresh spread is extremely low in sugar and needs to be refrigerated after opening and consumed within a couple of weeks.

Candied Citrus Peel
Reviving the traditional art of fruit confectionary and utilizing the entire fruit, we candy citrus peel to create a tasty, bite size, fruit candy.

These candies can also be chopped and added to cookie, cake, scone or muffin dough or swirled into ice cream and yoghurt. They are a luscious topping for oatmeal, granola or rice pudding and can offer a zesty accent to vinaigrettes or tagines.

Plum Pastes
Pastes are traditional preserves of fruit purees cooked down to a dense, but spreadable texture.

Each paste creates piquant accents to foods and in your cooking. Spread on French toast and serve with a fresh cheese or cream, accompany autumn and winter meats, especially fatty meats like duck, or dilute a little to make a warmed sauce for glazing fruit tarts and poached pears.

Italian Oregano
Our kitchen garden provides bountiful displays of Italian oregano, a sweeter, more delicate oregano than Greek oregano.

We harvest the flowers, buds and top leaves only and naturally dry them to retain the sweet oils of the herb. Oregano adores late summer foods: tomatoes, shelling beans, a medley of vegetables, pasta, eggs and more. We have a few bottles available.
