January 2022 Showcasing In My Kitchen

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.

Something sweet

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.

Liquorice January 2022

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.

  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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!
