British Food Shops

13 posts in this topic

I have used the search function and was surprised not to find a thread on this. Off to Kiel on Wednesday and just checked online to see what British Shops there are. I found Sandy's Foods on Königsweg 1, Kiel and plan to visit. Also thought it might be worthwhile asking forum members if they have any recommendations of other shops in Kiel offering British goods?

Bit off topic, but I had a go at homemade mincemeat and mince pies for the first time this year. Tastes fantastic! The mincemeat was a doddle and takes about 1/2 day all-in. Just need to perfect the pies now... I overfilled them and the filling spilled out everywhere, sticking the pies to the tray!

Mince pies taste even better in January and February when all the Christmas goodies are long gone! And yes, mince is really easy to make, most recipes requiring minimal or even no cooking and even the simplest taste good!

I find you only need a small teaspoonful for each pie, and remove them from the tray the moment you take them out of the oven to avoid the superglue effect.

They freeze and reheat beautifully especially if you just partly bake them and then freeze.

Mmmmmmm, with a nice glass of proper Irish coffee ....
