Getting Festive

Here at Balsajo we are preparing for the festive season.

With lots of new recipes coming this month we thought it would be a great time to promote some favourites.

Colder weather brings comfort food and we have plenty of recipes that will satisfy those needs and tastebuds!

Black Garlic Chicken Liver Pate

This delicious homemade Black Garlic Chicken Liver Pate is like no pate you’ve ever tasted. It is amazingly quick (only 40 min) and easy to make and delivers a mind blowing, gourmet flavour experience. It is incredibly moreish and has proven to be a fantastic crowd pleaser every time I make it. Perfect as a starter, to enjoy in a sandwich, with crackers or as a decadent addition to quality cheese and meat boards.

Black Garlic Honey Glazed Ham

The best ham glaze is a glaze which complements the meat it coats without fighting or contradicting it. And I’m really pleased I have just such glaze recipe for you today!


Tomato & Black Garlic Chutney

Tomato and Black Garlic Chutney might not be the most attractive thing to look at. But that flavour is simply to die for! Sweet and sour, earthy and intense, with just enough spice to deepen and enhance the flavour of both star ingredients.


Caramelised Onion & Black Garlic Gravy

This easy, caramelized onion and black garlic gravy will bring even the most boring plate of food back to life. It works well with white and red meat as well as roasted veggies. You can make it ahead of time or on the day, in only 40 minutes. Fantastic Thanksgiving or Christmas gravy – rich, punchy and generous, as it should be during any festive season!
