I am seeing venison more and more on the shelves, Norwich market nearly always stocks it and farm shops often have a stock in their freezers. It’s a similar price to beef and cheaper cuts offer tender, quality and rich tasty dishes making it perfect for old fashioned pies and casseroles.
This will sort the men from the boys. Homemade ketchup is really easy to make, this has the edition of fresh red chillis giving your senses that dynamite effect. There’s no need for fresh tomatoes, tinned plum tomatoes give fantastic flavour with out the preparation plus you get the juice. Most chefs will swear by tinned tomatoes over fresh in sauces and hot pots, they offer much more flavour than the average imported greenhouse grown tomato especially this time of the year.
