Add a touch of natural sweetness by adding rich, plump sultanas to porridge, baked apples, chutneys, cakes and Christmas puddings.
This is a traditional, flavourful country cake. It has a sweet, crispy top, a lovely moist texture and a spicy apple flavour. You can keep the cake for 2 days in an airtight container and a cool place (or you could if you had some left...)
An excellent mango chutney for pork, turkey or lamb. Mangos are simmered with sultanas, ginger, onion, garlic and lots of spices. Makes plenty, so be prepared with sterilised jars.
This is a little too sweet to have every morning, but it's a nice treat now and again!
It's not a mistake - this cake recipe has tomato passata in it! It also has cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, allspice and fresh orange juice which means it doesn't taste like tomatoes! Don't be afraid to give it a try and see for yourself how moist it is.
Sprouts are roasted with apples and cauliflower and tossed with sultanas and walnuts for a lovely Christmas side dish. Who knew Brussels sprouts could taste so good?
