Merry Christmas Food Tube!
I'm Charlie from Jamie's Food Team. Here are my top three Christmas tricks and tips.
My first tip—individual roasted vegetable bags. Keeping them in these foil pouches clears up so much space in your hob, and it's really gonna intensify the flavor. Just get another sheet of foil. One on top of the other, fold the edges so they're nice and tight around the veg. Sprouts. And our final package.
So there we go, three different veg, three different toppings, stack them all up. And then you go! Loads of space. Easy as that! Let's see what they're like! They smell amazing! It saves on space, it saves washing up, it saves on time. So give it a go.
My next tip is all about store-cupboard ingredients. I'm gonna use mayo and I'm gonna flavor it three different ways.
First one—basil mayo. A bunch of basil, plunk them in. Give it a good whiz. Looks pretty cool, and it's great in sandwiches.
Next one—roasted peppers in a jar. Just chop them up, chilli as well. Give them a mix.
Next up—garlic mayo. You only need about one clove. Give it a squeeze of lemon. Nice little stir.
That is three ways with mayonnaise. See what's in your cupboards and have a go.
My next tip is to help you jazz up that shop-bought mincemeat. First, cranberries, they're really meaty and juicy. Brandy, just gives that extra kick. Let's go with a lime, some zest. Go in with the lemon. Give it a good squeeze with the juice as well. All it's doing is just awakening those flavors. If you've got any leftovers, just put them in a jar, and it'll keep for ages.
If you've got any great ideas, then I'd love to hear them. Just comment in the comments box below and don't forget to subscribe to Food Tube.
