From lacklustre to luxury, how to easily revamp your Christmas side dishes…
Move over turkey, this year it’s sprouts turn to shine!It’s the same story every year. The turkey takes centre stage, perhaps followed by some roast potatoes you’re mildly proud of, then the vegetables plod onto the Christmas table, ever the unwanted guest.
But not this year! The Pickled Pepper is here to take your side dishes from bland to brilliant with just a dollop here, or a sprinkling there. And best of all, the products we suggest are so versatile you’ll find yourself reaching for them again and again over the festive holiday and beyond.
Honey, Balsamic & Cranberry Sprouts
Roast the sprouts (and an accompanying root vegetable of your choice) in a generous dash of Pickled Pepper’s home-grown Extra Virgin Olive Oil, our luxury Oak Honey and a splash of Due Vittore aged balsamic vinegar.
Just add a handful of walnuts, some pancetta and dollop of Pickle Bear Cranberry, Orange & Port sauce to the roasted sprouts and voila! An incredible side dish, worthy of your Christmas dinner masterpiece!
Truffle-soaked Roast Potatoes
Top off your taters with a drizzling of our Tartufi Black Truffle Oil to take your roast potatoes to the next level of luxury.
Camembert Cauliflower Cheese
Transform your cauliflower from drab to delicious. Once boiled, put in the oven with chunks of Tunworth or Winslade, some grated cheddar or gruyere, a couple of garlic cloves and top with breadcrumbs. A Christmas side dish fit for the 3 kings!
Brandy Butter…with everything.
Typically restrained to just the Christmas pud, by why hold back?! Hawkshead Relish Brandy Butter can be paired with everything from Christmas cake, to mince pies, to yule log, stollen, your Cornflakes… Indulge yourself and apply liberally to all your festive treats, without restraint.
