It’s not Christmas in the UK without mince pie. These tiny tartlets of meats, fruits and spices pop up all over homes, commercial kitchens and retail shops to accommodate those who believe it is good luck to eat a mince pie every day in December. Perhaps, it’s the English version of our lucky portions of pork, peas and field greens enjoyed on New Year’s Day.
The traditional English Christmas dinner will include turkey or goose, Brussels sprouts, roasted potatoes, cranberry sauce, rich and nutty stuffing, tiny sausages wrapped in bacon (pigs-in-a-blanket) and gravy. All this talk of food has us all a bit hungry! What’s on your plate this holiday?
