This really is one of those recipes that silently creeps up and steals the limelight, becoming the star of the table. Well for me anyway. Now I’ve discovered this recipe it will be coming out every winter and will certainly grace my Christmas time table.
The sweetness with the slight spice alongside the crunch and the vibrant colour make this a winner. So if you are looking for a new way to brighten up your roast or something zingy to serve with cold meats, give this a whirl.
You can make this recipe a day ahead and then just heat it up. I also like it cold with meats and cheese.
Part way through cooking – love these colours:
After the final cooking process – juicy jewels of sultanas amongst the sea of purple. Yes purple is my fav colour which does make this even more appealing 😉
