Our Christmas range this year includes old favourites as well as some new additions and all promise sumptuous flavours.
Along with our fabulous meat, we pledge to have phenomenal pricing. We know everyone is feeling the pinch with the rising cost of living, but we don't want you to have to tighten your belt, metaphorically speaking. So we promise to keep the price of our purebred, pasture raised Berkshire Christmas hams the same as last year. These hams are the wagyu of the pork world and they are prized for their juiciness, flavour and tenderness.

COOKING YOUR CHRISTMAS PUDDING WITH GAMEKEEPERS SUET:
Beef Suet is the secret ingredient to making the perfect traditional Christmas pudding. It is made from the fat that surrounds the kidneys of the cow and is the firmest of all the animal fats. It has a high melting point and the flavour profile is clean and surprisingly not beefy.
Stir up Sunday is a centuries-old tradition of gathering the family to make the Christmas pud. Each member of the family stirs the pudding from east to west to symbolise the start of the journey of the three wise men and then makes a Christmas wish. The day falls on the last Sunday before Advent and this year it falls on Sunday 20th November.
- use good quality dried fruit and soak your fruits overnight
- use room temperature citrus fruits & eggs
- for a lighter texture, use beef suet and sift your flours two or three times
- if you're a traditionalist, hide a coin in your pudding but make sure you wrap it in foil. When this tradition started, coins where made from gold or silver but times have changed.
- store in a cool, dry place for at least 4 to 5 weeks before planning to consume. Eating the pudding immediately after cooking could cause it to collapse, and the flavours will not have had time to mature.
- serve with homemade custard and brandy butter.
