How about making Christmas presents this year to make a gift that little bit more special. (We will post some pictures of ours as we make them)

Some easy ideas for a perfect Christmas hamper:

Sloe gin (see the recipe from our post on 29th September)

Spices apple and tomato chutney (see the recipe from our post on 9th October)

Shortbread

Chocolates

Smokey bacon and chicken liver pate

Flavoured crackers

Flovoured olive oil – our favorites are garlic and rosemary or chilli with black peppercorns.

Here is the recipe for a delicious smokey bacon and chicken liver pate and next week we will give you a scrummy recipe for walnut parmesan crackers.

227g butter

227g chicken liver

227g smokey streaky bacon

1 onion diced

1 clove garlic

2 tablespoons of sherry or brandy

1/4 pint double cream

pinch of salt and pepper

Cook together in a heavy based pan the butter, chicken livers, onion, garlic, salt and pepper until the livers are cooked through.

Leave to cool.

Once cooled, add the sherry or brandy and the cream.

Liquidise until it is the consistency you prefer then spoon into sterilised jars and leave to set in the fridge.

It’s that simple and will really impress!
