Top Holiday Preserving Recipes

I have a long list of things that I want to make over the Christmas break. Recipes that I have earmarked or bookmarked and that have just not risen to the top of my very long to-do list. But I have made an early New Years Resolution to myself that over the 12 days of Christmas I will try each and every one of these fantastic looking recipes.

Moroccon Preserved Lemons

With Meyer Lemons in season, now is the time to knock this recipe off the list. I love his suggestions for uses in recipes and my mouth waters, just reading the description of uses.

Simple and Amazing Cranberry Sauce

Be the best house guest ever and show up with home made cranberry sauce. I especially like the sounds of the optional rum in this recipe for an 'adult' version of the standard sauce.

Japanese Pickled Ginger

There is something about the flavour of ginger that works so well in the winter. The spicy heat that it brings to the palette - I just can't seem to get enough. I look forward to making this and having it on hand to eat almost like candy through the blistery months of January and February.

Carrot Cake Jam

Any jam that claims to taste just like carrot cake is one that I have no power to resist. The combination or carrots, pear and pineapple sounds like it would be perfect on pancakes on Christmas morning!
