Kapiti Baby Kikorangi 200g
Only $12.99 each
Save $3 each

You can't go wrong with this baby! It's an awesome cheese that looks great on a cheese board and is full of flavour.

The sweetness of a ripe pear and the salty creamy blue cheese goes amazing together. To make an easy but impressive appetizer, follow these simple instructions:

Preheat the oven to 150C degrees. 

Slice fresh bread and pop into a toaster for a light browning.  Place the pieces of toast on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, and smear the toast generously with blue cheese.

Top with a thin slice of pear, crumble on some more blue cheese and place it in the oven until the cheese has melted. Take out of the oven jut to sprinkle on some chopped walnuts and return to the oven again just long enough to heat the walnuts (make sure they don't burn). Remove from oven and drizzle with honey. Ta-da!  


From Groceries

Our Pomegranate Molasses Ham Glaze
Only 9.99 each

Made fresh in store by Anne, our head chef. If you've had it before, you know what we're on about... it's flippin delicious! Glazing the ham yourself is super easy when you have the right ingredient.

To serve ham warm and glazed:

- Pre-heat oven to 150°C
- Line dish with baking paper
- Peel off the skin leaving as much fat as possible
- Score the fat lightly, approx 5mm deep
- Pour whole pottle of glaze onto centre of ham and let it spread down over entire ham.
- Bake at 150°C for approx 6 mins per/kg.

Note: Ham is already cooked, you are only warming it to the bone – not cooking it.

Make your own Christmas Cranberry Sauce

Cranberries have long been the accompaniment of turkey and ham on the Christmas table. Everything from the traditional jelly to more robust chutney that is full of chunk and subtle spice is the go.

Cranberries are mostly known for their health benefit of preventing UTI’s, this is because they have a component that acts as a barrier to bacteria that can latch onto the urinary tract lining. 

Cranberries are an amazing source of vitamin C, E and fibre. 

Because of their amazing antioxidant properties they will be part of the help within the body’s natural detoxification process of the liver and kidneys. Add to that the level of phytonutrients in cranberries that work as anti-inflammatory agents in the body and you have a super berry.

At Christmas time we sell fresh cranberries which you will find in the vegetable chiller, but if you would like to get something made now, you will find a stock of them in the freezer to take home and create this simple recipe below.

Cranberries are very tart and I have given you a basic sweetness in the recipe below but if you want more sweetness try a squeeze of orange juice as well as the zest.  If you would like a little spice in your sauce, add a cinnamon stick while it’s simmering and a pinch of nutmeg at the end.

Simply Cranberry Sauce
2 cups of cranberries
1 cup water
1/3 cup honey pending your desired sweetness
Grated zest of an orange (should be about 1 tablespoon)
Give your fresh cranberries a good rinse in a colander or thaw out frozen ones.
Place into a pot with the water and bring to the boil then simmer for about 20 minutes.
Add the honey and orange zest and simmer gently for a further 5 mins.
Remove from the heat and place in a jar ready to serve or store in the fridge for use at another time.
