Stocking-up the festive larder

I'm not one to wish time away but I do look forward to things and like to make preparations well in advance. For me, Christmas is a wonderful time of year, not least for all the seasonal homemade food and drinks to enjoy. In a couple of weeks I will be making my mincemeat and chutney as they are always at their best once they have had some time to develop their flavours. I will also be selling these at the Naturally North Coast & Glens artisan markets in the run-up to Christmas but you can order yours directly through this site or by contacting me on Facebook or Twitter if you don't want to risk missing out!
