Its the little things about Christmas that I like...like these little red shiny berries. These are not quite so little, but when they start to come into our local market and Vegetable Shops I start to think about what preserve I shall make.
In the last two years I have made 'Chutney' type relishes, but this year I have chosen a more straight forward accompaniment..no cider vinegar, no salt, no pepper, but with just a little twist of rosemary and juniper berries. Since it is so easy and quick to make, and making just a little more than needed, it makes a lovely present to give to your friends. I have posted the full recipe and technique on Mrs Mace Preserves, with links to the two relishes. Its just the time to make it now, and store in time to bring that zing of flavour and colour to the Christmas dishes.
