A Merry Christmas

The season is upon us, and we're looking forwarding to packing up the goats (and kids and tents) and heading to Bruny for fun and frivolity with family.

Here's the planned menu my Mum and I are working towards:

Christmas Dinner:

Ham on the bone (homegrown free range)
Vegetables: roly poly carrots, pinkeyes and dutch cream potatoes, fresh peas, local pumpkin


Hazelnut meringue with raspberries - or raspberry mousse?
Stewed rhubarb and cream


Local beer/wine/apple juice

Boxing Day Breakfast:

Fruit Salad and Yoghurt (strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, apples and pears)
Bacon (homegrown) and Eggs (from our chooks)
Wholemeal Flat bread buttered toast


Fresh Bruny Island Oysters
Homemade sausages on the BBQ
Salads – Goats cheese, snow peas, butternut lettuce, radishes, strawberries, parsley, chives, olives, baby spinach, and anything else we can find in the garden!
Homemade garlic flatbread

Morning/afternoon tea:

Blueberry teacakes
Savoury Oat Biscuits with local Cheese (probably Bruny Island Cheese Company as it’s just a short walk away!)
Homemade Raspberry Icecream (for the big and little kids!)

Add a dash of beach cricket, a night under the stars, great conversation and company - tis a recipe for a splendid Christmas methinks!

I read about your quest in the Mercury this morning I am intrigued and impressed. FOrgive my ignorance, but could your flour be used into pancakes on Boxing Day?

Hi Bernard - we're having pancakes for breakfast tomorrow (Christmas day) - I'm optimistic it'll work with the Tassie Flour - I'll let you know how we go!
Thankyou for commenting! Jen
