Winter comfort

Yes, I made a new sort of waffles today and it is so wintery..

Add gingerbread spice mix to your waffle dough, a bit of powder ginger, hmmmm. Perfect with a bit of powder sugar and Aunt Jemima pancake sirup or the unfake maple will do. Waffle iron is happy (I added less of melted butter this time and more salt), we are as well.

What's your winter fuel these days?

Re: Winter comfort

Yesterday I cooked bubble and squeak, with burgers and baked beans. Good solid winter food.

Re: Winter comfort

Made proper English roast potatoes yesterday - anything cheesy or carb heavy makes my soul happy. (Perhaps not my waistline though.) We've also been cooking up big batches of bone broth, good for the immune system, cooking and overall wellbeing.

We bought some Glühwein from our local wine shop over the weekend - a very good Piemonte wine with an owner who cleverly decided to capitalize on the closed Christmas markets. This stuff is actually far better than what you get at them...

All these things are currently providing winter comfort.

Re: Winter comfort

Yesterday I made a steam roasted chicken covered with sprigs of rosemary, thin bacon rashers and lemon wedges pushed in between the legs, wings and body (the stock that comes off is delicious when added to a nice minestrone soup).

I also did a beef stew with sliced peppers and mushrooms in one of my slow cookers. For the freezer I did 2 minced beef meatloaves, also pork, sage and onion stuffing balls for Christmas. Later in the week I plan to do a fish and spinach flaky pastry pie and would normally do this with a filling of canned tuna, wilted spinach, sliced green olives and dill (you get it in Malta). This week I'm going to swap the tuna for some hot smoked salmon I have in the fridge which which I'll skin and flake up as a nice change.

Last week I baked Scottish shortbread which my OH took to his office.

Re: Winter comfort

All those things sound like an amazing winter fuel!

Wish I had our old rum from back home, to put a shot in my gingerbready waffles.

Re: Winter comfort

Oxtail makes amazing stews - five hours slow cooked. And oxtail is (relatively) cheap. The only problem we have is that the coops near here only have about 1kg in stock at a time.

It has nothing to do with real rum. Our cheap knock-off has a particular flavor that is great to put in desserts and jams. And coffees. With cinnamon. It also makes chocolate cakes rise nicely and Banana Split heavenly. People also can plums and sour cherries with a bit of this great heretic stuff. 40% so like a tea spoon. Older generation likes it. The young one has it in warm drinks in their thermos on slopes at times..I like it by the fire place on some thick sheep skin (or in blueberry muffins), in a mug of hot milk and honey, it is called Bear Milk.

Usually you can order non-standard stuff a day or three ahead. Perhaps try?

My big bro over for his 83rd BD - pork loin with mustard, cream and morels, with mash and green beans- and dark chocolate tarte au chocolat. And today, raclette and mandarins in Cointreau syrup and vanilla ice-cream.

Re: Winter comfort

Got some apples... peeled and cored them.
Stuffed with leftover mince meat (mince pie filling, not dead cow!)
Wrapped in flakey pastry, painted with egg, sprinkled a bit of sugar on top... and baked.

Smuther in custard!

yummy!

Happy New Year Effers
