YOU Christmas crazy

Kingsbury C

It is a time of family and festivity, but Christmas also means hard work for Judy Kingsbury. The Ashburton grandmother has spent the past week decorating her home and has many hours in the kitchen to come. YOU’s Susan Sandys paid her a visit this week.

Porcelain nativity scene dolls have been handmade by Judy.

I

t is no wonder family members and others flock to the Ashburton home of Michael and Judy Kingsbury at Christmas me, it’s a Christmas wonderland. Five Christmas trees, handmade Santa and na vity scene porcelain dolls, quilted wall hangings, wreaths and candle arrangements galore adorn the home’s interior. “There’s so much more to go on that tree,” Judy says of the main Christmas tree, a 2.2m green lounge-room centrepiece, when the YOU reporter visited earlier this week. Dozens of par ally completed outgoing Christmas cards and quilted advent calendars sat on the long dining room table, and the kitchen awaited a hive of Christmas baking and cooking ac vity. The main Christmas tree was already decorated with large gold and red bows, white doves and small flashing lights. It was just one of the items Judy was part way through adorning, as part of her annual decoraon mission, which usually takes one week. “There’s no way I’m going to be ready by Wednesday,” she said, referring to the day that a endees of the Park Street daycare centre were to visit. “I have to make the cupcakes yet.” But she had Michael helping her and planned to get a lot done that day, so she would indeed be ready for that group, as well as another group, of resthome residents, on Friday. The couple have been decora ng their house for Christmas ever since they moved there a er re ring off their farm 18 years ago. Michael is a member of the Ashburton Keyboard and Organ Club and he will some mes play music for a endees. The Mr and Mrs Claus and na vity scene porcelain dolls were made by Judy and a collec on of chorister dolls and angels are among cherubic pieces adding to the tradi onal and fes ve feel of the home. Closer to Christmas, family will descend on the house, including the couple’s two sons and their wives and six grandchildren aged 10 to 26. They will stay throughout the fes ve season, and be treated to all manner of fare which Judy bakes at this me of year.

Christmas extravaganza

Christmas is an excuse to go all out with decorating and baking for Judy Kingsbury of Ashburton.

It includes a Christmas cake, shortbread, Belgium biscuits, caramel square, rice bubble square, Christmas mince pies, Christmas puddings, rolled pavlovas, trifle and fresh berries. Christmas breakfast was usually waffles, maple syrup, strawberries and cream, “and some mes we have a tar n as well”. This year the children will be treated to a day me visit from Santa Claus himself, courtesy of one of the couple’s daughter-in-law’s family members, who will arrive in a classic car before lunch. Judy is very much looking forward to the me with her family, especially a er having spent her first Christmas last year without her children, when both her sons and their families were away. She said other family members also generally joined celebra ons at the home, and she and Michael always made sure any rela ves likely to be on their own were invited. “You just try and make sure everyone you know has someone with them for Christmas,” she said.

YOU Christmas crazy

From us to you! The team at the Guardian loves food, es of their favourite festive foodie treats this month.

favourite f

he origins of this recipe are a mystery and its peculiar name is a mystery, but it was one of the must-haves on our family Christmas baking list. Mum would make several batches of her specialty that was consumed with endless cups of tea (for the adults) the rare treat of fizzy for us on Christmas a ernoon, n, at Boxing Day picnics and again ain at our big family New Year picnic cnic at Caroline Bay. Made by mum it was s cky, y, crunchy, gooey perfec on; love ove and memories in every mouthful.. – Sue Newman

Christmas puddings Guardian circula on manager Joyce Bingham has a great, fun and simple Christmas treat for the kids to make: The ingredients are: Marshmellows, spearmint leaves, jaffa lollies and melted chocolate. Just dunk the marshmellows in the melted chocolate, assemble as per photo, and voila. Enjoy.

170g bu er 2 eggs 85g sugar 2C flour 1t baking powder Pinch of salt – Cream bu er and sugar – Add flour and baking powder – Roll out to fit oven tray and cover with filling: Filling: 2T golden syrup 2T bu er 3/4 n condensed milk 1 1/4 C sugar 4 egg yolks 1t vanilla 3T flour – Put in saucepan and heat un l thick Meringue: 4 egg whites 4 T sugar Whisk un l firm – – – –

serve. The cooking appears to take away the sharp, harsh taste of the blue cheese that many people dislike. Mixed with the mushroom flavour, this combina on creates a wonderful taste sensa on that does not fill you up before the main meal arrives. – You can also add some spinach with the blue cheese as filling to add to the flavours. – If you prefer cooking inside you can do the same in a large flat kitchen pan, with the op on of grilling the cheese in the oven.

Lemon meringue pie This recipe is adver sing rep Ashleigh Fraser’s favourite at Christmas ... This recipe book is precious to Sue Newman and her family. It is around 80 years old, was started by Sue’s mum and contains many old and treasured recipes, including frosted sandwhich.

BBQ salmon This recipe may be decep vely simple, but it is a special treat Guardian rural reporter Michelle Nelson looks forward to every Christmas. – Get a salmon and a load of fresh dill and some sliced lemons. – Spread half the lemons and the dill on a big sheet of oiled n foil, place the salmon on it, and the rest of the lemons on top . – Wrap it around the salmon, add a few more layers of n foil, chuck it on the barbecue for about 10 minutes on each side (if it’s a big salmon or less if it’s a smaller fish).

Mushrooms with blue cheese Our resident Dutchman/Kiwi editor Coen Lammers reckons this is an easy appe ser to make the mouth water. Coen reckons it’s one of the simplest recipes to make an impression with. Even those among us who are horrified by the smell and taste of blue cheese will like this as I found out at a friend’s place recently. 6 large flat mushrooms Small block of blue cheese – The easiest way is to simply cook the flat side of the mushroom on the flat plate of your BBQ first for 5 minutes, then turn and cook the round part of the mushrooms. – As you cook the round part, put a thin slice of blue cheese inside the flat part of the mushrooms – Wait un l the cheese has melted and

– crush 175 grams of malt biscuits, add 75g of melted bu er, put into a greased dish and chill in fridge – 1 n of condensed milk, 2 egg yolks, 1/2 cup lemon juice, mix all that together and pour over chilled biscuit base – beat 2 egg whites ll s ff, add 1/2 cup of sugar, beat again. Pipe on to the top of mixture – Bake for 40 minutes at 180-190°C

Cheese ball The Guardian’s Sue Durry reckons Christmas is just not Christmas in her household without cheese balls and home-made chocolate ice cream. 100-200g finely chopped ham 250g tasty cheese (grated) 250g cream cheese 2-3 finely chopped gherkins 2T mayonnaise Chopped nuts con nued next page

od, especially at Christmas time, so staff have provided some

festive foodie treats – In a bowl mix cream cheese, grated cheese, chopped ham and gherkins together. – Use mayonnaise to combine ingredients and form one large ball or two smaller balls. – Roll in chopped nuts and refrigerate. – Pineapple can be used instead of gherkins if preferred.

Kiwi Christmas turkey

Chocolate ice cream (gluten free) 175g (7oz) semi-sweet chocolate (chocolate bu ons) 1t vanilla 225g (9oz) cream cheese (so ened) 2 eggs 125g (5oz) sugar 1 cup cream

The Christmas pudding, sent in by Joyce Bingham, is great fun for children to make.

– Melt chocolate pieces over hot water. Combine cream cheese and half the sugar un l smooth, add vanilla and beaten egg yolks. – Beat egg whites un l s ff, then beat in the other half of the sugar. Whip cream. Combine cream cheese mixture and the melted chocolate. Fold in the whipped cream and beaten egg whites. – Pour into an air ght container and freeze. – This makes approx 1 ½ litres of very rich ice cream.

The Guardian’s Eden Kirk-Williams found this recipe in her faithful Jamie Oliver cookbook. Having mastered the recipe with roast chook, she moved on to the roast turkey. She reckons it turns out “YUM” – a moist and flavoursome bird every me. 1 sprig fresh sage, leaves picked 12 strips streaky bacon 1 bulb garlic, broken into cloves 4 medium red onions, peeled 2 s cks celery, trimmed and chopped 1 big handful breadcrumbs 1 handful dried apricots 300 g high quality minced pork zest of 1 lemon 1 pinch grated nutmeg 1 large free-range egg sea salt freshly ground black pepper 12 small sprigs of fresh rosemary, plus a few extra 4-4.5 kg higher-welfare turkey, at room temperature 2 carrots, peeled 1 large orange olive oil 2T plain flour con nued over page

8 1.1 litres organic chicken or vegetable stock – Preheat the oven to as high as it can go. Heat a saucepan un l medium hot and add a splash of olive oil, the sage leaves and 6 of the bacon strips. Peel and chop 2 garlic cloves and 1 onion. Add the garlic, celery and onion to the saucepan and fry everything gently un l so and golden brown. – Take the pan off the heat, add the breadcrumbs and, while the mix is cooling down, chop the apricots roughly and s r them in. – When the stuffing has cooled down, add the pork, lemon zest, nutmeg, egg and lots of salt and pepper, and mix everything together well. – Slice the remaining strips of bacon in half and slice 1 peeled garlic clove into thin strips. Place a rosemary sprig and a garlic sliver on one end of a halved strip of bacon and roll it up ghtly. Repeat with the other pieces of pance a un l you have 12 li le rolls – Stab the thighs and drums cks of the turkey in 6 places on each side. Push a li le bacon roll into each hole un l it just peeps out. This’ll give your turkey thighs a fantasc flavour and will keep them moist while they cook – Chop the remaining onions in half and slice the carrots thickly. Give your turkey a good wipe, inside and out, with kitchen paper, and place it on a board, with the neck end towards you – Find the edge of the skin that’s covering the turkey’s breasts and gently peel it back. Work your fingers and then your hand under the skin, freeing it from the meat. – If you’re careful you should be able to pull all the skin away from the meat, keeping it a ached at the sides. Go slowly and try not to make any holes

Susan Sandy’s Christmas cake is moist and tasty every time.

– Li the loose skin at the neck end and spoon the stuffing between the skin and the breast, tucking the flap of skin underneath to stop anything leaking out – Pop the orange in the microwave for 30 seconds to warm it up and stuff it into the cavity. Weigh the stuffed turkey and calculate the cooking me (about 20 minutes per 500g/1lb 2oz) – Place the bird on a large roas ng tray, rub it

all over with olive oil and season well. – Surround with the chopped carrots, onions, remaining garlic, cover with nfoil and place in the preheated oven – Turn the heat down right away to 180°C/ gas 4, and roast for the calculated me, or un l the juices run clear from the thigh if you pierce with it a knife or a skewer. – Remove the nfoil for the last 45 minutes to brown the bird. Carefully li the turkey

out of the tray and rest on a board that’s covered loosely with foil for 20 minutes while you finish off the veg and gravy. Skim the surface fat from the roas ng tray and add the flour and stock – Place the tray on the hob and bring to the boil on a high heat. When the gravy starts to thicken, strain it into a bowl – Carve your turkey, serve with the gravy and dig in!

Salmon delight (Serves 8 to 10 people) Guardian adver sing rep, Frenchy Emma Jaillet-Godin, loves salmon and while her’s is not a ‘tradi onal’ French recipe, her family has it for Christmas every year. It’s definitely a family favourite. 2 cans of salmon (the big one – 185g) 4 eggs 3 pinches of grated gruyere (Edam cheese would do too) 1t of tomato paste Béchamel sauce (50g bu er, 50g white flour, 1 teaspoon of salt, around 300ml milk (white sauce) – Start with the béchamel sauce. In a pot, put the bu er and let it melt. When melted, add the flour slowly and mix it with a whisk – Add milk slowly and keep whipping un l smooth. Add the salt. Let it cool down – Then add the tomato paste, the grated cheese, 4 yolks and the salmon that you have crumbled – Mix the white together so they go up and look like foam – Add them bit by bit to the mix and gently mix it with a spoon from the bo om of the bowl to the top – Place the mixture in the bu ered oven dish (use a rectangle oven dish) – Cook 1 hour and 15 minutes at 180°C in a bain marie. Check with an iron s ck if it is cooked by going through the cake with it. If there is anything on the s ck, it isn’t ready – Let it cool down and then put in the fridge – Serve cold. Cut the cake into slices – The best way to eat it is with homemade mayonnaise and some salad on the side with a tasty French dressing (mix mustard, salt and pepper, balsamic vinegar and olive oil)

Francoise Belpadrome’s Buche de Noel recipe is French to the core.

essence or coffee powder to your liking Base 5 eggs 80g sugar 100g self-raising white flour

Christmas cake Guardian and YOU reporter Susan Sandys makes her delicious Christmas cake every year and usually brings some into work for her lucky workmates because, not only is it delicious, but it makes a huge cake. It either makes two cakes, one large cake, or six to 10 mini cakes, which are great for presents around this me of year.

1.5kg mixed fruit 450g can crushed pineapple 3C high grade flour 1t each cinnamon and mixed spice ½ t ground cloves 225g bu er 1C sugar 1t vanilla essence ½ t lemon essence 6 large eggs

– The day before mixing the cake, put the dried fruit and undrained pineapple in a large frypan. Cover pan, heat un l liquid boils then simmer un l all juice is absorbed.

Leave overnight, or un l cold. Mix flour and spices together and put aside. In a very large bowl, cream bu er, sugar and essences un l light. Beat in eggs one at a me, adding 2 tablespoons of the spiced flour with each. S r in prepared (cold) fruit and remaining spiced flour. If mixture seems too so , add extra flour un l mixture will just drop from spoon. Put into baking paper-lined ns, level the tops. Decorate with blanched almonds and cherries if you don’t plan to ice the cake/s. Bake mini cakes at 130°C for about 1 ½ to 2 hours, depending on the size of the n used. The cakes are cooked when a skewer pushed to the base of the middle of the cake comes out clean. Take cake/s from n/s when cold. If you are making one larger cake, it should be baked at 150°C for 1 ½ hours, then 130°C for about 2 hours longer. It is said that for best flavour and texture, the cake/s should be wrapped in greaseproof paper then in tea towels and le to stand in a cool place for a few weeks. However, I find the cakes just as delicious when they are fresh, and without the cherries and almonds it is a good fruit cake to have in the pantry year-round, great for school and work lunches. The cake/s can also be put into plas c bags and refrigerated or frozen, but do not leave in sealed plas c bags at room temperature, as they may sweat and go mouldy.

Filling 1l milk 3/4 C sugar 7T self-raising white flour Chocolate powder (I use Nesquik: 10T) or vanilla essence or coffee powder 375g bu er – Mix sugar and flour in a pot – Pour in the heated up milk while mixing to get a smooth cream – Heat the pot over medium heat while whisking un l the cream thickens. Take it off as soon as boiling starts – Leave it to cool down – Whip it up with the electric mixer while adding the so ened bu er – Add the chocolate powder or the vanilla

– Pre-heat your oven to 180°C – Mix together sugar and egg yolks – Whip up the egg whites. Add it to the mixture – Mix in the flour – Pour the mixture into a shallow rectangular oven tray (use baking paper) – Leave it in the oven for up to 20 minutes – Take it out of the oven and immediately put the base on a wet cloth, lightly sprinkle with sugar. Roll it ghtly – Unroll it immediately – Spread the filling on top of the base and roll it again – Cut the edges of the cake. You can use one of the cut edges to decorate the cake by pu ng it on top (see photo above) – Use the rest of the cream/filling to garnish the cake. Use a fork to draw longitudinal lines on the cream. Decorate to your liking

he Christmas fes vi es are already upon us. A me of decadence, celebra ons, family and friends. Whether you celebrate Christmas in a tradi onal way or less tradi onal, we all indulge at this me. Not being a great lover of tradi onal Christmas cake I have always opted for something a li le less fruity and more nu y and chocolatey. This Chocolate Hazelnut Torte is absolutely divine eaten in small quan es (very rich) a er your Christmas Day meal and not so fiddly these days with hazelnut flour being available now at SimpliFoods. What a delight it was to discover that having reluctantly made my own for many years. A torte is a European-style cake that has a rich chocolate flavour and a so , moist, almost pudding like texture. This cake can also be made several days in advance to take away the pressure of producing dessert on the day.

o me, the whole Christmas “bah humbug” thing is just another form of nega vity. “It’s just become so commericial” you say. So don’t be commercial then. “Kids are too spoilt, too much is spent on them,” you say. So don’t spoil them. “It puts too much pressure on families and domes c violence steps up several notches.” Yes it does, and it is an awful issue. But life is full of stressful situa ons, I don’t believe Christmas is the problem, I believe it’s the way some people deal with stress. If I don’t have the money, then I don’t spend it (now that I don’t have a Mastercard anymore). My kids are older now, so I can explain to them that things are ght this year. When they were young I couldn’t explain much that would penetrate their ‘I am the only person in the world’ fog ... but to be honest, they would o en be happiest with the weird $2 or $5 toy I’d picked up for an extra in the Santa sack. I simply, maybe naively, don’t understand the stress and even distress people seem to put themselves under. Many people seem to build up into a Christmas frenzy and get themselves wound up.

YOU and your gardens

December in the garden you magazine DIG THIS ROGER MARTIN gives us some gardening advice

I

always think that December is one of the most rewarding months in the garden, not just for the wealth of greenery and colour but the richness of succulent green and root vegetables just wai ng to grace the Christmas table. It is a month where one can truly be rewarded for one’s hard work. Probably the most important thing is to pay a en on to watering to keep all this lush growth going but as sure as the sun rises in the east the pests and diseases will be wai ng their chance to enjoy the fruits of your labours! I am a great believer in “preven on is far be er than the cure”, so it is impera ve that a basic spray programme be adhered to. THE ROSE GARDEN Roses are plants that many gardeners have problems with especially during the high summer months. When watering try to do this in the early morning so as the plant’s foliage and flowers dry out before it gets too hot, which will lessen the spread of fungus diseases such as mildews, rusts and black spot. Regular fer lising with a slow release fer liser like Nitrophoska or NovaTec with encourage good plant vigour which in turn makes for a healthy plant far less likely to succumb to these nas es. Fortnightly sprays of Shield alterna ng with Bravo will give you good control but this must start in the early spring. Shield is a combina on insec cide / fungicide targe ng both insect pests and fungus diseases whereas Bravo is a protectant fungicide. Red Spider Mite is a pest that usually appears post New Year causing spo ng and bronzing of the leaves with premature leaf fall. Mites are not insects so you need to use a Mi cide such as Mite Killer or Mavrik. Your winter spraying of Conqueror Spraying Oil will get rid of over wintering egg infesta ons. De-heading of the spent flowers is important to encourage re blooming and if you are target-

If you look at the fantastic gardens above you can see why disease and pest prevention is better than the cure. 101213-DW-256

ing a specific event such as a wedding, you need to allow 6 – 8 weeks for another flush of flowers. Always de-head back to strong buds with 5 leaflets as these will produce be er flowers than those with 3 leaflets and always cut back to an outward facing bud making sure the sloping cut does not extend below the bud. THE VEGETABLE GARDEN Potatoes and tomatoes are probably the two most widely grown vegetables and the two that cause most gardeners to most angst! They are both related to each other so many of the cul va on prac ses can be used on both crops. Blight is a term most commonly used to describe a number of fungus diseases causing death and decay of leaf ssue but more specifically it is a wet weather disease. Late blight (Phytophthora ) first appears as pale areas on leaves and stems which spread gradually. A white fringed growth may also be present. As the lesions spread the foliage collapses. Early Blight ( Alternaria ) usually a acks later in the season with small angular, blackish lesions that

gradually enlarge. Subsequent a acks may cause the leaves to fall. Control with fortnight applica ons of Bravo or Copper Oxychloride during periods of warm, wet weather. Irregular watering of potatoes causing variaon in the growth rate is the biggest factor affec ng the quality and cooking performance of this crop. Keep the soil moist par cularly at flowering me. The major pests of potatoes are Aphids and Potato Tuber Moth both of which are easily controlled with Insec cides such as Confidor, Target and Carbaryl. Tomatoes tend to be more tricky and are subject to a number of pests and diseases but regular sprayings of Confidor or Target insec cides alternated with fungicides such as Copper Oxychloride or Bravo should prevent infestaons from occurring. Both crops are gross feeders but require low nitrogen, medium phosphorus and high potash levels so once again Nitrophoska and NovaTec are ideal for this. Too much nitrogen and overwatering will cause excessive foliage

growth resul ng in poor flower ini a on and poor fruit set. Seedling tomatoes need to have their laterals removed when small otherwise the plant will not support the excessive leaders that result. Gra ed tomatoes are designed to carry a much heavier load so several leaders can be used as long as sufficient support is given to the plant by way of stakes or wires. Gra ed tomatoes are gra ed onto a rootstock so by their very nature their vigour is very strong requiring regular feeding and support. I cannot stress enough the value of home grown vegetables to a family’s health and wellbeing and with a li le bit of effort anyone can produce fresh veg to enhance their diet and involve the family in a healthy, fun and rewarding pas me. Christmas is almost upon us so I would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a happy Christmas and a prosperous New Year.

YOU and your gardens

26 Alison Early is this month’s tomato pack prize winner with the following ques on:

Healthy trees are more disease resistent My sturmer apple tree has a powdery appearance on some of the growing ps. The leaves affected aren’t thriving whilst the rest of the tree where unaffected is doing well. What is this and how do I deal with it please?

I

t’s hard to be absolutely sure without seeing the plant, but from your descrip on it does sound like an insect called mealy bug is the cause. Many varie es of apple trees, and par cularly the older varie es such as sturmer, are very suscep ble to this problem. It can be hard to treat and with it producing

edible fruit it’s important to be careful what you use. In the first instance, where feasible and once the new growth has hardened (is no longer so ) get the hose out and set it on a fine mist with high pressure and direct it at the infected part of the plant – you may need a ladder for this job. Be very thorough, as a small amount le behind can re-infect the tree again quickly. If you have further problems you can also try spraying the tree with Neem Oil. Healthy trees are less prone to pest and diseases, so regular feeding and a en on is important to improve the plants’ vitality and fruit cropping.
