10 Ways to Spice Up Your Christmas by Just Ingredients

Today I’m sharing a lovely infographic that caught my attention this week, by the lovely folks at Just Ingredients, who have focused on ten ‘festive ingredients’ and how to use them. I’m very tempted by their recipe idea for sticky plum and star anise ham, which I’d pair with a plum and star anise vodka cocktail…and I love the idea of making my own basil salt, or honeyed thyme carrots. I hope you like it as much as I do and that it inspires you to get creative with some herbs and spices in your Christmas kitchen this year.


If you haven’t heard of Just Ingredients before, I’d encourage you to take a look at their site. It’s a treasure trove of superfoods, nuts, herbs and spices. They also have organic ingredients, fairtrade options, tinctures, botanical herbs, wholefoods and oils.  Their ‘Secret Ingredients’ blog is very lovely, too – I love the idea of these Crêpes with spiced pear, pecan and cranberry compote, which would make an amazing Thanksgiving dessert if you are celebrating this week.

With many thanks to Just Ingredients for creating this handy infographic and for inviting me to share it with my readers.
