Boxing Day and More with St. Dalfour

December 17, 2021


The way Christmas falls this year, with the Bank Holidays on 26th & 27th December, means that many of us will have a decent spell at home over the festive period. So, we thought we would offer up a few suggestions for some tasty fare, including healthy options after the indulgence of Christmas Day.

What better place to start than with St Dalfour’s tasty fruit preserves? So versatile, they can be used in both sweet and savoury dishes. St. Dalfour fruit spreads are made with delicious fruit sweetened only with fruit juice concentrate. So, if you want to taste the fruit in your jam and not just the sugar, start spreading St. Dalfour. No added cane sugar, no preservatives, no artificial colouring and gluten free; simply enjoy 100% spreadable fruit!

Boxing Day leftovers

Let’s start with the turkey leftovers and a delicious Coronation style sandwich. Mix together 75g each of mayonnaise and Greek yoghurt. Add a heaped tbsp of St. Dalfour Apricot preserve, a teaspoon of curry powder and a few sultanas. Add chopped leftover turkey for a tasty sandwich filling.

We always love a turkey curry in our house, but how about a delicious vegetarian curry that makes use of any surplus vegetables from the Christmas dinner? Try our brand new recipe, Aubergine and Christmas Vegetable Curry, for a tasty, warming dish that incorporates red lentils for an even healthier meal. This is sure to find its way on to your regular recipe list for the New Year.

Ready, steady, bake

Need to keep the kids occupied over the Christmas break? Then why not pull them away from the screens for a bit of festive baking? Our Strawberry Star Sable biscuits are fun to make and you can use whatever flavour filling you prefer. Make a double batch and take as gifts for family and friends.

Or, for an even easier option, try fruity flapjacks that just need a good old stir of ingredients. For the more adventurous cook, an upside-down cake is always a winner. Try our Tropical version for a taste of sunshine on a cold winter’s day.

Hopefully, that has given you a few ideas to start your own ideas flowing. Enjoy the festive season with help from St. Dalfour!
