Hello and welcome to day 12 of Jo's Online Advent Calendar!
Today I share with you the ornament I stitched this year for my Christmas tree!
Each year I try to stitch at least one ornament to add to the tree, slowly but surely it is filling up!
This year Jo asked us to tell you a story about the food we enjoy at Christmas.
We are quite the traditional type when it comes to Christmas dinner, we have turkey with all the trimmings! But no Christmas dinner would be complete without...
My Nana's Recipe Yorkshire Puddings!
Now I know that most of you in the UK will know exactly what these are, but I am curious, do those overseas not have this wonder in their lives?!
They are very simple, the batter is flour (MUST be plain), milk, a little water and egg. Whisk it all together to make a batter. While you are doing this heat up some lard (another must) in a cake tin in the oven. This needs to be HOT HOT HOT for the puddings to rise correctly, it should be smoking a little before you place the batter in. Once you have poured the batter in to the tray place in the oven (quickly!) and do not (!!!) open the door again until they are ready.
et voila, beautiful Yorkshire Puddings!
Happy Christmas everyone! xoxox
