A British Christmas Dinner

If you traditionally have a British style Christmas dinner or if you want to change up your Christmas dinner this year, then English Tea Store is your place. We carry many of your holiday favorites to help make Christmas a memorable one for you and your family. Our British food comes straight from the UK so you can have a taste of Home right here in the US.

Here are some of the essentials for an exquisite Christmas dinner:

Mint sauce – If tradition calls for lamb and not ham this Christmas season, then you will know it’s not lamb without the mint sauce! Slather some of this refreshing minty goodness on your lamb and you’ll be in flavor paradise. If you prefer mint jelly instead, no problem! We also have mint jelly from Baxter’s! Sometimes it’s best to get both kinds for the mint sauce connoisseurs and the mint jelly lovers.

Marrowfat Peas – Some like to add vegetables on the side like green bean casserole. If you are not a fan of green  bean casserole, then try some Marrowfat Peas with some carrots this holiday season. Erin’s No-Soak Marrowfat Peas add a little bit of convenience to you. For even more convenience, try them canned.

Ahh! Bisto Gravy  – It’s not a holiday dinner without the gravy! Bisto has been a part of Christmas dinners in the UK since the early 20th Century. It’s easy to prepare and easy to eat! Just make sure you have enough for everyone!

Twiglets  – Waiting for the food to cook? Eat some Twiglets! Twiglets are a popular holiday snack in the UK that is much like Marmite. You either love it or you hate it!

Don’t forget to place a Christmas Cracker at each guest’s place. It’s not a British Christmas without them! It’s always fun to crack these bad boys open, tell the silly joke enclosed inside, and wear the paper crowns while eating dinner.
