homemade christmas!

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
Right I have decided that we are going to have a homemade christmas this year as I am fed up of missing out on yummy things coz of allergies!

But I don't really know where to start!

I am going to make crimbo cake - doing that this weekend
Pickled eggs and onions - again this weekend

I also want to do some jam, mince pies, cookies, rum balls etc but when do you make these? I did a quick google but couldn't find anything!

Thanks

AFA

    Mince meat, for mince pies, now. It needs to mature like a pud or cake.

    Jam, you could make now. It lasts a fairly long time.

    Rum balls ? Those truffle things covered in vermicelli (sp) or cocoa powder ? I'd make them Christmas week.

    Cookies, Christmas Eve' same for the mince pies.

    I'm making my own almond paste again this year, so i can put crap loads of almond extract in it and make it extra, extra, EXTRA almondey :)
