Beer and Honey Roasted Winter Carrots

As we are getting closer to Christmas, I thought I would share another great recipe for you to adorn your winter table with i.e.. Roasted carrots done in beer and honey! The carrots go really tender using this roasting method. And the sweetness of the root vegetable is really enhanced. They are buttery, slightly beery and very delicious! We still have carrots in the garden, and you can tell these are homegrown by the little kinks and bends, which I find cute, rather than off putting. They won’t be growing anymore in the cold earth, but they are safe to stay in the ground and overwinter, unless we get a very hard bout of frost.  I like to leave a little top on my carrots, its purely aesthetic, but it does look good!     Beer and Honey Glazed Carrots Serves 4   500g/17oz carrots with tops 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil 3 tbsp butter 4 sprigs thyme 70ml/2.4 fl oz beer 3 tbsp honey salt and freshly ground black pepper   1.

Chocolate Winter Berry Pavlova

Over the last few months I have put Camera & Clementine on the back burner, but it has not been out of sight out of mind. I have been extra busy with weddings during late autumn and early winter. Plus I have had a load of recipe deadlines to finish before Christmas for Kitchen Garden Magazine and Amateur Magazine. They are now almost completed, just in time for me to share some of my favourite Yuletide recipes! First up is this fabulous Chocolate Winter Berry Pavlova! It looks so majestic on the Christmas table, yet it is in fact quite quick to assemble – making you look like a domestic god/goddess without breaking a sweat. Pavlovas are an Australian favourite at any time of the year, but when topped with a vibrant selection of winter berries and cranberry coulis, it just screams Christmas! (or ‘The Holidays’ if you are state-side) You can choose to decorate and flavour this indulgent pavlova with many types of fruit, use whatever you have available, it will be delicious regardless.   …
