All the latest news from the farm and the kitchen

It’s that lovely time of year when it’s cold outside and cosy indoors pottering in the kitchen – creating delicious winter and Christmas treats.
The other day I was bored of the fiddly job of rubbing butter into the flour, and besides, we know our cold pressed rapeseed oil is healthier than butter! So I thought why not replace the butter for oil!
The results were great – it was much quicker to make – and still tastes really good.
Here’s my recipe – I urge you to try it, or if like some of our family you like mince pie alternatives try it with lemon curd or bakewell tarts in the photograph.
