TED's 5 Fave Festive Foods

TED's 5 Fave Festive Foods

Ted's Five Fave Seasonal Foods for the Festive Season

1) Apples

Apples are a great source of potassium, calcium, vitamin C and dietary fibre. Good varieties to choose include Cox's orange pippins and russets.

 

2) Guinea Fowl

African in origin, these birds have been popular in the UK for hundreds of years. They taste a little like chicken with a slightly more gamey flavour. Casseroles are the perfect method for cooking guinea Fowl, as the slow process brings out their flavour and the juices prevent the meat from drying out.

3) Halibut

This tasty fish is at its best in the winter months. It can dry out on cooking but pan fried with butter, or cooked in foil to keep the moisture in brings out the best in this delicately flavoured, sweet fish.

4) Parsnips

Parsnips are a key part of the traditional Christmas meal, and their sweet flavour makes them popular with many children. A member of the parsley family, the parsnip is at its best in winter when the cold weather helps to turn its starches into sugars. Parsnips are high in potassium, calcium and vitamin A. Popular since Roman times, parsnips were for many years the root veg of choice until ousted by the potato in the 16th century. They are delicious roasted or made into crisps

5) Red Cabbage

A member of the brassica family, red cabbage has been grown in Britain since the Middle Ages. Red cabbage is packed with vitamin C and can be grated and eaten raw in salads, pickled, or slow cooked with spices, apples, brown sugar and raisins as a traditional accompaniment to game dishes, roast pork and duck
