Recipes

Here are some good old fashioned recipes that are our family favourites.

I am often asked for this Boiled Fruit Cake recipe.
It is one of the selection of cakes that we serve with our "Country Teas"
to the many groups that visit our Art & Craft Gallery & Herb Farm.
It is easy to make & is wonderful baked in muffin sized tins.
This is our traditional Christmas Cake recipe.
