Legendary Coleslaw


We can never make enough of this,
traditional and popular.



  • 2 carrots
  • 1 fennel bulb
  • 1 head of celery
  • 1/2 a celeriac
  • 1 parsnip
  • 1/4 red or white cabbage
  • 1 red onion
  • 1 large bunch dill (you can never overdo the dill!)
  • Dressing – a good dollop of mayonnaise, a slosh of white wine vinegar, and a smidgeon of Dijon mustard

Shred all the vegetables as finely as possible, preferably by hand. Food processors are faster, but can shred too finely and make the coleslaw mushy.

Simply coat the vegetables with the dressing.

Serve with our locally smoked ham, or alongside one of our delicious pies or sausage rolls.


Butternut Squash, Bulgar Wheat and Walnut Salad




  • 1 butternut squash, peeled chopped and deseeded
  • 300g bulgar wheat (Crabapple on the High Street sell this)
  • A glug of olive oil
  • 1tsp chilli powder
  • 2 handfuls of walnut pieces
  • 1 pomegranate, juice and seeds reserved
  • 1 lemon, zest and juice
  • 2 handfuls of mint, roughly chopped

Preheat the oven to 200c / gas mark 6 spread the butternut squash out on a roasting tray and drizzle with olive oil.

Roast for 30-40 minutes until soft and crisp on the outside – leave to cool.

Boil the bulgar wheat according to the pack instructions

When the bulgar wheat and squash are both cool, combine and add the other ingredients, voila!
