A massive Rocking Dog thank you to all who supported my Rocking Dog winter events. Young Carers and BUST each have a cheque winging its way to them for £132.

Very special thanks to all who came and donated so generously for munching Rocking Dog Mince Pies, Sloe Gin Rocky Road and Alex’s Billionaire’s Shortbread etc… Eating such delicious fare is such a hard job, but someone has to do it!

Massive thanks too for the boys at Hambrook House for their stash of single variety apple juices. All proceeds from their orchard crop went to the charities. Thank you Graeme and Scott.

As ever thanks to my family for stepping in to bake, brew, socialise and tot up.

Thank you to everyone from the bottom of my creaky old heart for your generosity, support, love and friendship x

Suited & Booted! Rocking Dog Preserves

Yes indeed Rocking Dog has been suiting and booting her newly made batches of preserves. The  mirror sparkly jars have been given stylish fabric hats and handwritten/stamped labels.

There is a Rocking Dog preserve for every taste. Organic Sicilian oranges and lemons were brought back from our recent Umbrian foray. Spiced Oranges would pep up a meat platter or be delicious served with pates and coarse terrines. Meanwhile the lemons now newly formatted as Lemon and Ginger Marmalade is hoping to be spread sun shiningly thickly on hot buttered toast.

There are homemade mustards, pickles, chutney and jelly’s. My personal favourite is my Pear & Pomegranate jelly. Soft set, I think it would be truly delicious with the creaminess of a homemade panna-cotta.

So now that these goodies are glamorously and rustically suited and booted I hope that they will soon find appreciative homes!

Rocking Dog’s stash of preserves will be available to buy at her sales on Wednesday 30th November and Sunday 11th December. Details on my home page www.rockingdog.co.uk

Have a wonderful weekend. Love Rocking Dog x
