Over the past six months we have been busy in the Alfresco Emporium test kitchen, creating some special condiments for you to enjoy this holiday season.
There is something for the sweet tooth in your family, and for the little more health conscious, we have developed a few different salad dressings which are sure to bring new life to a very simple salad.
Here is our list of exclusive condiments.
Perfect for spreading onto a think slice of toasted sourdough, our Fig Jam is made up of more than 40% figs and it's not too sweet, making it a great addition to enjoy daily with a hot cup of coffee.
Sweet and tangy our lemon butter is best eaten straight out of the jar! It's also a perfect staple to have in the cupboard for when friends pop by. Fill our mini sweet crust pastry cases to have an impressive instant dessert for an afternoon or high tea treat.
It wouldn't be Christmas Day without bowls of cranberry sauce to add to your perfectly cooked Christmas turkey. A great suggestion for leftover turkey is to use it in sandwiches with brie, baby spinach and cranberry. They are one of the favourites on the menu at The Cafe at AE, Collaroy and the Island Cafe Bundall, toasted so the brie just starts to melt...delish!
Mustard & Honey Dressing
Our Mustard and Honey Dressing is the perfect addition to a chicken, pasta and avocado salad. It's a harmonious blend of sweet and tangy flavours and is also great as a dressing on a simple, giant salad of mixed greens.
Satsuma Plum & Port Paste
Now, here is something perfect for cheese lovers. Once you have tried our Satsuma Plum and Port Paste I'm sure you will agree that any cheese board would be pretty average without it. Enjoy with blue or a hard, vintage cheddar cheese.
Our sweet mustard is perfect matched with fresh leg ham. Need I say more?
Balsamic & Pomegranate Dressing
You will want to buy this dressing in bulk! Not only is it a flavour packed salad dressing, it is also great as a dipping sauce with olive oil and dukkah on bread or perfect for glazing meats. Here is one of our favourite salads using Balsamic and Pomegranate Dressing...you won't be able to get enough of it.
1/2 cup Doodles Creek Candied macadamias (or any candied nuts like pecans or walnuts)
1 x Fuji apple cored and thinly sliced
1/3 cup blue cheese
1/4 cup dried cranberries
4 cups or a big bed of your favourite salad greens
Add the salad ingredients to a large bowl and toss to combine.
Shake bottle of Balsamic and Pomegranate Dressing and dress salad to the desired amount. Viola!
Starting from only $6.95 the AE range of condiments are perfect for adding to Christmas hampers and make a great secret Santa gift. Make sure you pick some up for your Christmas Day festivities to spoil your friends and family.
