Christmas Eve supper
Set the scene for a sumptuous Christmas with this lovely Christmas Eve supper menu, which includes a fair few festive flavours...
Fresh scallops are very plump and good around Christmas time, and this is my own favourite way of serving them. The recipe has the advantage of requiring no last-minute fuss - it even freezes well and can be cooked straight from the freezer.
Roast collar of bacon with blackened crackling
English Cumberland sauce
Jacket potato wedges with melting cheese and spring onion
Braised red cabbage
I always like to serve a jelly at Christmas time because when there is a lot of rich food around it is so nice to have something cool, light and refreshing at the end of a meal. This one is incredibly simple, but don't be tempted to jazz it up – we've already tried that and found this simple version infinitely better. If you prefer, you can make the jelly in a 1¼ pint (725 ml) capacity jelly mould rather than glasses.
