Warm up to a jar of festive Missie-ness
29 November 2012
After last year’s successful spreading of Missie Cindz Sheffield Plum Jam under the whimsical name ‘Vintage Preserves‘, a collaborative food product with passionate advocates of local produce, PJ Taste. I am delighted to say that we’ve joined forces again for the Christmas season to launch a special limited edition of delicious chutneys.
Christmas dinner would not be complete without the customary condiment, and how about this year giving our caramelised onion with burnt orange chutney a try; move over cranberry sauce!
Our caramelised onion and burnt orange chutney was chosen as a great way to use local seasonal onions combining them with festive citrus flavour and spices which instantly bring Christmas warmth to mind. I’ve grown to love chutney’s ability to transform simple foods into something more appealing – smear it on a sandwich with cold meats and you’ve a was boring sandwich into something more exciting! Or serve it as is on a cheeseboard and your friends will think “where’s the party!?”, but the stuff also appeals to my innate frugality. Chutneys are also a joyous condiment that can add instant spice and pizzazz – make those (Sheffield Moss Valley) sausages sing with a little on the side.
I am continuing to learn a lot about fresh produce,. There’s always a joy in eating seasonally and how my design skills can help and support my local community, especially our independent ones – who often needs (and appreciates) our support the most. Missie Cindz Vintage Preserves Chutneys are only available to purchase from PJ Taste on Glossop Road and will be on their shop shelves from Monday 10th December 2012. There are only 40 jars available so once these delectible chutneys are gone, they’re gone! You can email me to reserve your jar and we’ll save these behind the counter for you to pick up or if you’re not local, we can arrange hand packing and delivery.
I always a enjoy a good collaborative project; meeting new people and learning new skills. It’s fantastic what they can teach you! Myself and PJ taste hope you enjoy our festive chutney. Go on, try it – you’ll be glad you did – Missie Cindz :)
