Christmas cake ~ Jamaicans take Christmas seriously. Very, very seriously. And there is nothing that symbolizes how much preparation and forethought goes into the one day than in the baking of the Christmas Cake. Several pounds of dried mixed fruits, prunes, raisins, cherries are purchased and soaked in rum and red wine months in advance and the grumblings about the high cost of basic food items die down as homemakers set out to buy around 20 different ingredients for one dish.
Mary Berry's Christmas chutney - It's that time of year again! After this recipe went down a storm as christmas gifts last year, I am making it again. Extractor fan is broken though so we have a very vinegary kitchen/living room. EEK!
