Happy New Year!

Just wanted to say Happy New Year to you all and share a few food gifts we made as presents this Christmas!  I know it's not technically tea - but one has to put something on the saucer! 

First up, the Gingerbread houses.  These were as tricky as expected but were still standing!



Fudge, rum and raisin...


The fudge recipe was from the Ideal Homes Christmas magazine.  Gave their truffles recipe a go too!



For some savoury, Tangy Caramelised Onion Relish also from the Ideal Homes recipe...  These wines in the background were home-made from our garden apples too!


It was the first time we thought we'd try giving hampers of foods for people and think it went pretty well for a first attempt!

I got some lovely tea gifts as well so i'll post some pictures soon!  All the best for 2013!
