Sherry did not have an IMK series in January 2022 so if you missed my post, please take a look here. I had Hannah with me for 2 weekends in January so we could bake together. She had fun making butter and ice cream, and then did a lot of colouring in. These moments with her are precious and I feel very blessed to have them.
Starting with savoury
With Hannah in mind I bought some hake fish cakes. I know I could make my own, but these are so good, and extremely convenient. As toppings I made two chutneys. One was roasted cherry tomato and the other, mint and coriander. They were the perfect addition to this very simple meal. I baked a whole wheat Cape seed loaf and made caper butter.
I used the abundance of cherries I bought to make drunken cherries as well as cherry and vodka jam. Hannah and I baked vanilla cookies and as a treat for her I made granadilla ice lollies.
One new thing in my kitchen in January 2022
I loved all the old fashioned sweet shops in The Netherlands. We were sent to an amazing one in Delft, and I found one in Utrecht. Here I chose the lucky dip liquorice. All of them were sugar free, but not enough were of the salted variety for me.
This is my February submission to the #IMK series hosted by Sherry. Each month bloggers around the world gather to share what is new in their kitchens.

those sweets sound quite tasty…
I am slightly addicted to liquorice 🙂
I think the Netherlands must be fond of liquorice, though I’ve never read anything like that. I bought some there, but unfortunately, one piece was spoiled, which ruined me for eating liquorice ever again. Yours looks lovely, though.

what a pity! I love Dutch liquorice and when Mark comes over I will make sure he brings us some 🙂
that cherry jam sounds great tandy. how lovely to have hannah with you. it’s a wonderful thing to bake with young ones. Salted liquorice divides the masses but i like it due to having had a Dutch brother in law who loved it. thanks for doing an IMK post.
I could eat the liquorice as a snack I love it so much 🙂
Those drunken cherries and the cherry vodka jam are just singing to me.. maybe because I’m jetlagged and just want to have something strong! Loving the organisation of your post always, most impressive!
Thank you! And hope the jet lag wears off soon 🙂
