Much Ado About Stuffing!

With Thanksgiving fast approaching, Nicky – ever generous and kind – thought she’d share her famous stuffing recipe with all you lovely people. This recipe is perfect for turkey and you’ll hopefully have most of the ingredients lying around your kitchen already. So try it out this Thursday for a fabulous Thanksgiving feast!

Thanksgiving Stuffing Recipe by Tea & Sympathy

1 large onion chopped
2 sticks celery chopped
2 red apples chopped
6 rashers bacon chopped
3 sausages out of skin
1/2 cup pine nuts
1/2 cup fresh chopped sage leaves
1 tsp dried mixed herbs
salt & pepper
2 cups fresh breadcrumbs
1 or 2 eggs

Fry the onions until soft then add the bacon. Cook for a few minutes then add celery, apples, nuts, sausage meat, sage, herbs, salt and pepper. Fry until it is mostly cooked. take off the heat and add the bread crumbs and beaten egg or eggs. Put into a baking dish and bake for approx 45 minutes in a 375 degree oven.

Delicious!

For the truly lazy we also stock Paxo at our Carry On Tea & Sympathy grocery store. This is a stuffing mixture you can add water to then bake in the oven. So whatever your time constraints this Thanksgiving – Tea & Sympathy has got you covered!

McVitie’s Digestives & Tea & Sympathy Rosie Lee: Just Married!

Today’s British Pantry is something of a wedding party. For we are celebrating the harmonious union of a biscuit to a cup of tea. Now don’t laugh just yet. Hear us out first. We’ve preached the wonders of dunking in the past, and following the launch of our brand new teabags last week, there was only one grocery item we could feature today. The McVities Digestive biscuit!

The first digestive rolled off the biscuit press at the turn of the 20th century. There’s been no looking back since and we’d wager that you’d find a pack in 90% of British store cupboards. Not sure how we’d get to the bottom of this one, but the offer’s on the table! We do know that 52 Digestive biscuits are consumed every single second in the UK, which more than speaks for itself!

The distinctive name derives from a belief that acid in the biscuits aided digestion, while that even more distinctive flavor (the one that lends itself so well to being dunked in a mug of tea), is a mixture of brown wheat flour, malt extract and wholemeal. If you’ve never tried one, where have you been?! And if you have tried one, you’re yet to experience the perfect marital bliss gained from dunking into a mug of our new brew.

McVities are available in-store, as are our new teabags. We can ship both. Just get in touch at info@teaandsympathynewyork.com, or on 212-989-9735.
