  • 70 ml fresh orange juice
  • 1/2 tsp of grated nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp of allspice
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp golden syrup
  • 170 g raisins
  • 80 g dried apricots
  • 80 g dried sour cherries
  • 80 g dried cranberries
  • 80 g dried blueberries
PREPARATION
  • To make the fruit filling, mash the banana and pop into a bowl with all the ingredients. Mix well and leave covered in the fridge overnight for the flavours to develop.
  • To make the pastry, mix all the dry ingredients together in a large bowl. Cube the butter, then use your fingers to rub it in to form breadcrumbs. Split the vanilla pod and scrape in the seeds. Grate in the lemon or orange zest, then mix in the sugar.
  • Add 2 tablespoons cold water to the mix, then quickly and gently work it into a dough. Wrap in clingfilm and chill in the fridge for 30 minutes.
  • Remove the pastry from the fridge. Place a large sheet of greaseproof paper in front of you, put the chilled dough on top, place another sheet on top and thinly roll out the pastry (this will stop you needing any more flour).
  • Preheat the oven to 180°C/350°F/gas 4, grease your pie tin well and take the fruit filling out of the fridge. Cut out 12 pastry circles, big enough for your tin and 12 star lids (if you don’t have a star cutter, just make round lids).

  • Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, until golden. Allow to cool before taking out of the tins. Once completely cooled, dust with icing sugar.

Easy Christmas Pudding

ingredients
  • 1 cup raisins
  • 1 cup sultanas
  • 1 cup self-raising flour
  • 1 cup finely grated butter (about 115g/4oz)
  • 1 cup fresh brown breadcrumbs (from around 4 thick slices of bread)
  • 1 cup light muscovado sugar
  • 1 cup mixed nuts, chopped plus extra to decorate
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp ground mixed spice
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 large egg
  • butter for greasing
  • For the butterscotch sauce
  • 85g butter
  • 100g light muscovado sugar
  • 200ml double cream
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
PREPARATION
  • For the pudding, empty the first six cups and the nuts, if using, into a mixing bowl with the spices, then stir in the milk and egg. Once well combined, tip into a buttered 1.5 litre pudding bowl.
  • Cover with a double layer of buttered foil, making a pleat in the centre to allow the pudding to rise. Tie the foil securely with string, then place in a steamer or large pan containing enough gently simmering water to come halfway up the sides of the bowl. Steam, covered with a lid, for 21⁄2 hours. Check the water level during cooking, topping up if necessary. If you are preparing this pudding ahead, remove the foil, let it cool slightly, then wrap in cling film and then fresh foil. If you are serving it immediately, unwrap and invert onto a deep plate.
  • For the sauce, put everything in a pan and bring slowly to the boil, stirring. Allow to bubble away for 2-3 minutes, still stirring, until the sugar has dissolved and the sauce is pale caramel in colour and slightly thickened. Remove from the heat. Pour the sauce over the pudding and decorate with the whole mixed nuts.

Calming Camomile Tea

  • Remove the pot of water from the heat, once the water starts rapidly boiling. Pour the water into a teapot and then place or stir the camomile flowers in the water. Place a lid on the pot and let the camomile flowers steep in the water for five minutes. You can decrease or increase the steeping time for a weaker or stronger tea.
  • Sweeten with a drizzle of honey if desired

Chia Seed Dessert

ingredients
  • 6 Tablespoons chia seeds

PREPARATION
  • In a bowl or mason jar, mix together chia seeds, milk, maple syrup and vanilla. If you’re using a mason jar, you can put the lid on and shake the mixture to combine everything.
  • Once the chia pudding mixture is well combined, let it sit for 5 minutes, give it another stir/shake to break up any clumps of chia seeds, cover and put the mixture in the fridge to “set-up” for 1-2 hours or overnight.
  • The chia pudding should be nice and thick, not liquidy. If it’s not thick, just add more chia seeds, stir and refrigerate for another 30 minutes or so.
  • You can also prep you pudding the night before and let it sit in the fridge overnight if that’s easier. When ready to serve, divide the mixture between two bowls, top the pudding with berries and enjoy.

    MOLASSES AND TAHINI COOKIES

    ingredients

    • 1 tablespoon Greenfields Brown linseed seeds (plus 3 Tb of Water)
    • 3 tablespoons tahini
    • 10 tablespoons oatmeal
    • 3 tablespoons Greenfields Cane molasses

    PREPARATION

    1. The night before you want to make the chutney it is necessary to peel one’s mangoes,
    cube them and sprinkle them with salt. This draws out some of their moisture and
    softens them. Make sure to rinse before use!
    2. Tip the apple, ginger, garlic, vinegar, sugar, black nigella seeds, cinnamon, turmeric, chilli
    flakes and chilli powder into a pan. Heat until the sugar has dissolved. Add the mango and
    bring to a gentle simmer.
    3. Simmer the chutney for 30-40 minutes until it has achieved a thick, sticky consistency.
    Season to taste. While waiting, one should sterilize one’s vessel to ensure the chutney stays
    good for at least a couple of weeks. Once the chutney is done transfer it to the jar and allow
    to cool before applying the lid. Allowing the chutney to mature for a couple of days.

    Pumpkin Spice Latte

    ingredients

    • 125ml maple syrup
    • 100ml water
    • 1 tsp Greenfields ground cinnamon
    • 1 tsp Greenfields ground nutmeg
    • 3 tbsp pumpkin puree
    • 1 tsp vanilla extract
    • 1 tsp Greenfields ground ginger
    • 4 shots of espresso
    • 1.5 litres of skimmed milk
    • Squirty cream and cinnamon for serving (optional)

    PREPARATION

    One: Put all the syrup ingredients into a bowl.

    Two: Mix well. Put in a pan and bring to the boil. Reduce heat and
    simmer for 10 minutes. Take off the heat and let sit for 10 to 15
    minutes until thickened a little.

    Three: Add a shot of espresso to each cup and stir in 3 tbsp of syrup.

    Four: Stir in hot steamed milk.

    Five: Top with cream and a sprinkle of cinnamon.

    Toffee Apples

    ingredients

    • 6 Granny Smith or Jazz apples
    • 250g caster sugar
    • 4 tbsp golden syrup
    • 2 Greenfields star aniseed
    • 3-4 Greenfields green cardamom pods, lightly crushed
    • 2 Greenfields cinnamon sticks

    PREPARATION

    1. Give the apples a good wash under hot water. Pat them dry with kitchen paper and remove the stalks, adding a clean stick in its place. Lightly oil a sheet of baking paper on a tray.
    2. Heat the sugar, syrup, 4 tbsp water and the spices together on a medium-high heat in a heavy-based pan. Stir the mix just once to help melt the sugar, then bring to a bubble and turn the heat to medium-low. Swirl the pan every few minutes, rather than stirring, until you get a deep golden caramel – this should take about 10-15 minutes. If you have a sugar thermometer it should hit 150°C, or if you drip a little onto a plate it should harden without being sticky. Fish out the spices with a spoon (don’t touch the caramel).
    3. Working relatively quickly, turn the heat to very low (but keep the pan on the hob). Dip each apple in turn in the caramel (holding them by the skewer or stick), then leave to set on the lined tray (be very careful as the caramel is burning hot!). Eat the day of making or the toffee will go soft.

    Creme Brulee

    ingredients

    • 4 cups double cream
    • 1 Greenfields vanilla pod, split
    • 10 egg yolks
    • ¾ cup caster sugar, plus extra for sprinkling

    PREPARATION

    Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Pour the cream into a saucepan over medium-low heat. Scrape the vanilla caviar from the vanilla bean and add it to the cream. Bring almost to the boil, and then turn off the heat. Place the egg yolks in a large bowl and add 3/4 cup sugar. With a whisk, mix the eggs and sugar together. You’re going to need to whisk the mixture for 3 or 4 minutes, until it’s very light yellow in colour. Place a fine mesh strainer over a large bowl. Pour the hot cream into the bowl through the strainer. To temper the egg mixture, very slowly drizzle 1 cup of the hot cream into the egg/sugar mixture, whisking constantly to prevent the eggs from cooking. Continue adding the rest of the hot cream to the bowl very slowly, whisking constantly. You can add the cream a little more rapidly as the mixture warms. Place ramekins on a rimmed baking sheet and ladle in the custard until the ramekins are three-quarters full. Place the baking sheet inside the oven, and then pour water into the baking sheet until it reaches two-thirds of the way up the ramekins. Bake until the custard is set but not brown, 35 to 40 minutes, watching carefully to avoid browning. Remove the ramekins and allow to cool. Refrigerate the custards, covered, for at least 2 hours or overnight. When you are ready to serve the dessert, sprinkle the top of each custard generously with superfine sugar. Use a kitchen torch to burn the sugar to a crisp, working quickly to avoid cooking the custard below. (You may also place the ramekins on a pan and put them right under the broiler.) Serve immediately with spoons.

    Christmas Pudding

    ingredients
    • 1 Cup raisins
    • 1 cup sultanas
    • 1 self-raising flour
    • 1 cup finely grated butter
    • 1 cup fresh brown breadcrumbs
    • 1 cup light muscovado sugar
    • 1 cup mixed nuts, chopped plus extra to decorate
    • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
    • 1 tsp ground mixed spice
    • 1 cup milk
    • 1 large egg
    • Butter, for greasing

    For the butterscotch sauce

    • 85g butter
    • 100g light muscovado sugar
    • 200ml double cream
    • 1 tsp vanilla extract
    PREPARATION
    1. For the pudding, empty the first six cups and the nuts, if using, into a mixing bowl with the spices, then stir in the milk and egg. Once well combined, tip into a buttered 1.5 litre pudding bowl.
    2. Cover with a double layer of buttered foil, making a pleat in the centre to allow the pudding to rise. Tie the foil securely with string, then place in a steamer or large pan containing enough gently simmering water to come halfway up the sides of the bowl. Steam, covered with a lid, for 21⁄2 hours. Check the water level during cooking, topping up if necessary. If you are preparing this pudding ahead, remove the foil, let it cool slightly, then wrap in cling film and then fresh foil. If you are serving it immediately, unwrap and invert onto a deep plate.
    3. For the sauce, put everything in a pan and bring slowly to the boil, stirring. Allow to bubble away for 2-3 minutes, still stirring, until the sugar has dissolved and the sauce is pale caramel in colour and slightly thickened. Remove from the heat. Pour the sauce over the pudding and decorate with the whole mixed nuts.

    Sticky Toffee Pudding

    ingredients
    • For the pudding

      • 225g whole medjool
      • 175 ml boiling water
      • 1 vanilla pod, sliced and seeds scraped
      • 175g self raising flour, plus extra for greasing
      • 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
      • 2 eggs
      • 85g butter, softened plus extra for greasing
      • 140g sugar
      • 2 tbsp cane molasses
      • 100ml milk
      • Cream or custard to serve

      For the toffee sauce

      • 175g sugar
      • 50g butter, cut into pieces
      • 225ml double cream
      • 1tbsp cane molasses
    PREPARATION
    1. Stone and chop 225g medjool dates quite small, put them in a bowl, then pour over 175ml boiling water.
    2. Leave for about 30 mins until cool and well-soaked, then mash a bit with a fork. Stir in the vanilla .
    3. Butter and flour seven mini pudding tins (each about 200ml/7fl oz) and sit them on a baking sheet. Heat oven to 180C/fan 160C/gas 4.
    4. While the dates are soaking, make the puddings. Mix 175g self-raising flour and 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda together and beat the 2 eggs in a separate bowl.
    5. Beat 85g softened butter and 140g sugar together in a large bowl for a few mins until slightly creamy (the mixture will be grainy from the sugar). Add the eggs a little at a time, beating well between additions.
    6. Beat in 2 tbsp black treacle then, using a large metal spoon, gently fold in one-third of the flour and bicarbonate of soda mix, then half of the 100ml milk, being careful not to overbeat. Repeat until all the flour mix and all the milk is used.
    7. Stir the soaked dates into the pudding batter. The mix may look a little curdled at this point and will be like a soft, thick batter.
    8. Spoon it evenly between the tins and bake for 20-25 mins, until risen and firm.
    9. Meanwhile, put the 175g sugar and 50g butter pieces for the sauce in a medium saucepan with half the 225ml double cream.
    10. Bring to the boil over a medium heat, stirring all the time, until the sugar has completely dissolved.
    11. Stir in 1 tbsp cane molasses, turn up the heat slightly and let the mixture bubble away for 2-3 mins until it is a rich toffee colour, stirring occasionally to make sure it doesn’t burn. Take the pan off the heat and beat in the rest of the double cream.
    12. Remove the puddings from the oven. Leave in the tins for a few mins, then loosen them well from the sides of the tins with a small palette knife before turning them out.
    13. You can serve them now with the sauce drizzled over, but they’ll be even stickier if left for a day or two coated in the sauce. To do this, pour about half the sauce into one or two ovenproof serving dishes.
    14. Sit the upturned puddings on the sauce, then pour the rest of the sauce over them. Cover with a loose tent of foil so that the sauce doesn’t smudge (no need to chill).
    15. When ready to serve, heat oven to 180C/fan 160C/gas 4. Warm the puddings through, still covered, for 15-20 mins or until the sauce is bubbling. Serve them on their own, or with cream or custard.

    Nutella and blue poppy rolls

    ingredients

    ▪ 150g strong white bread flour, plus more for dusting
    ▪ ¾ tsp fast-action dried yeast
    ▪ 1 ½ tsp caster sugar
    ▪ 3 tbsp olive oil, plus more for greasing
    ▪ ¼ tsp Greenfields sea salt
    ▪ 65ml lukewarm water
    ▪ 40g blanched hazelnuts, toasted and roughly chopped
    ▪ 20g sesame seeds, lightly toasted
    ▪ 150g Nutella
    ▪ zest of 1 small orange
    ▪ 2 tsp icing sugar, optional

    PREPARATION

    Mix flour, yeast, sugar, 2 spoonfuls of oil and salt in a large bowl until combined.
    Gently pour in the water. Using a spatula, bring the mixture together. Transfer to a lightly oiled surface
    and knead the dough for 3 minutes until soft and elastic. Add a little more oil if the dough starts to
    stick to the surface or your hands. Transfer to a lightly oiled bowl and cover with a clean, damp tea
    towel. Leave to rise in a warm place for 40 minutes, until nearly doubled in size.
    Preheat the oven to 220°C fan.
    Combine the hazelnuts and blue poppy seeds in a small bowl and set 1 tablespoon aside.
    On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough out into a 40x30cm rectangle, so that the longest side is
    towards you, parallel to the work surface.
    Using a spatula, spread the dough with Nutella, leaving a 2cm border clear on the top edge. Sprinkle
    the orange zest evenly over the Nutella, then scatter over the mix of sesame seeds and chopped
    hazelnuts. With the longest side still towards you, roll the dough into a log. Brush with the remaining
    spoon of oil, then sprinkle over the tablespoon of blue poppy seeds and hazelnuts you had set aside.
    Press them gently into the dough to stick. Trim the ends of the log and cut the roll into 10 segments,
    each 3cm long, and transfer to a parchment-lined baking tray, seam side down.
    Bake for about 8 minutes, until golden-brown. Remove from the oven and let cool slightly.
    Optional: Drizzle Nutella on top for the chocolate lovers!
