Sussex Yoghurt from Northiam Dairy

Copy of HARVESTING SINCE 1892

Northiam Dairy dates back to 1919 when it was started by Rupert Cyster’s Grandfather. Today, its still a family run farm and is home to 80 cows.
Northiam Dairy is based near Hastings in leafy East Sussex. They produce traditional milk, cream and yoghurts all overseen by Tim, the expert dairy manager.
They don’t shout about their traditional values, but a visit round the farm, you can feel the homeliness. The cows have a huge area to roam with, grassland and diverse plants acres of.
So, their yoghurt ingredients are naturally sourced and hand prepared. The fruity flavours are packed full of flavour. Available in a range of pack sizes, either natural or fruity, creamy and low fat. All suitable for vegetarians.
The creamy yoghurts have a satisfying 7% fat content which is closer to a Greek style yoghurt and adds a luxurious smooth texture.
All their delicious yoghurts contains live bacteria for gut health (and flavour).

                                                                                                                                                                  Plus other key nutrients for maintaining bone health including calcium, protein, potassium, phosphorus and Vitamin D.

Northiam yoghurt is lightly sweetened with unrefined sugar. These sugars are better for your body and retain much more of the sugar’s natural nutrients, such as calcium, iron and magnesium.

These are quick and easy recipes, for those always on the go, looking for a healthier lifestyle eating Sussex produce.

Are you looking for a tasty and healthy weekend dish or something quick for those busy days at work. Look no further and try this delicious and creamy recipe.

Lentil soup may seem bland and boring, but there’s a whole lot more you can add to it. Take a look in your spice cupboard to brighten the flavours of your soup or even squeeze a lemon in it.

Ingredients:

4 slices thick-cut bacon, chopped, or 1 tablespoon olive oil

yellow onion, diced small

large or 2 small carrots, diced small

celery stalks, diced small

2 cloves garlic, minced

2 tablespoons tomato paste

1 tablespoon smoked paprika

1 teaspoon cumin

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1 1/2 cups green or brown lentils

6 cups chicken or vegetable broth

bay leaf

1/2 cup yogurt

Zest and juice from 1 lemon

Minced parsley to serve

Method:

Set a large pot over medium heat. Add the bacon and cook slowly until the fat is rendered and the bacon is crispy. Remove the bacon with a slotted spoon and transfer to a paper towel. Pour off all but 1 tablespoon of the bacon fat. If using olive oil, simply heat the oil and continue to the next step.
Turn the heat to medium-high and cook the onion until it softens and starts becoming translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the carrots and celery, and cook for another minute or two. Stir in the garlic, tomato paste, paprika, cumin, salt, and cinnamon. Cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds.
Add the lentils, broth, and bay leaf to the pan and stir. Bring to a boil, and then reduce the heat to low. Simmer, uncovered, for 20 to 30 minutes until the lentils are soft (exact cooking time will depend on your lentils). Taste and add salt and pepper as needed. Stir the reserved bacon into the soup, or sprinkle it right on top of each bowl.
Whisk together the yogurt, lemon zest, and lemon juice. Add a dollop of this yogurt sauce to each bowl as you serve and sprinkle the tops with parsley.

Sussex Red Kuri Squash & Apple Pudding

squash_apple_pudding2_450

Originally a traditional Japanese dish that has been adapted for a richer consistency. This healthy crust-less pie has a delightfully creamy light texture, making it a great side dish to go with your Sunday Roast and can be enjoyed either warm or cooled. It is soft, creamy, and free from any white sugar, dairy and eggs. Perfect for your vegan or lactose-free guests!

This recipe will make enough servings for 6-8 people. Adjust for more/less if needed.

You will need:
500g Red Kuri Squash
300g Silken Tofu, drained
1/4tsp nutmeg
1/4tsp cinnamon
2tbsp olive oil
1/2tsp sea salt
1tbsp mild white miso paste
8tbsp maple syrup
2 medium sweet apples
1tbsp lemon juice

Method:

1. To cook the squash, cut it in half and scoop out the seeds, (you can leave the skin on for this one). Lay the squash down in a baking dish and poke some holes through the skin with a sharp knife. Fill the baking dish with 1cm of water and bake at 180°C for 35-45 minutes or until soft. Then take the squash out of the oven and leave to cool to room temperature, then store away in an air tight container in the fridge. Leave the oven on for later.

2. Put the squash, tofu, olive oil, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt, miso paste and maple syrup into a food processor and blend until smooth.Now is a great time to taste to see if you would like to add more maple syrup or not, according to your taste buds.

3. Peel and core the apples and cut them into thin wedges. To stop the apple from turning brown, place into a bowl of water mixed with lemon.

4. Fill a pie dish with the squash mixture. You will then need to place the apple pieces onto the pie; to do this, make sure to drain them first and pat dry, you don’t want a soggy pie!

5. Drizzle the top of the pie with more maple syrup if you wish, then place in the oven for 30 minutes.

Sussex Corned Beef and Onion Pie

corned_beef_and_onion_91401_16x9.jpg
Impress Dad and sit down to an evening meal with this filling and hearty Corned Beef Pie using our soft and tender Sussex Saltmarsh Brisket joint. This pie can be paired well with some chunky home-cooked chips, buttery mash and gravy or simply enjoyed on its own as an evening snack.

Preparation time: 30-60 minutes     Cooking time: 40 minutes        Serves: 6 people

Ingredients:

For the filling:
340g Corned Beef (homemade is fantastic! Find our recipe here)
15g Unsalted Butter
300g Nicola Potatoes, peeled and cut into dice measuring 1cm
2 Medium Carrots, cut into dice measuring 1cm
2 Celery Sticks, peeled and chopped
1 large Onion, sliced or diced
1tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2tbsp Tomato Ketchup
Freshly Ground Black Pepper (to taste)

For the Pastry:
300g Plain Flour, plus extra for rolling
175g refrigerated Butter, cubed
1 free-range egg
Pinch of Sea Salt

Method:
1. To make the filling, heat a large frying pan and melt the butter with the oil. Once it has heated, gradually add in the potatoes, carrots, celery and onion and cook over a low heat, stirring regularly until the vegetables soften and begin to colour, this should take about 15 minutes.

2.  Stir the ketchup into the vegetables and then add in the corned beef, to do this make sure you break the beef into chunky pieces and mix it in with the vegetables.

3. Season to your taste with the black pepper, as the beef is slightly salty on its own, you shouldn’t need to add salt. Remove the filling from the heat and let cool for 20 minutes.

4. Preheat the oven to 190C/375F/Gas Mark 5

5. For the pastry, use a food processor to pulse the flour, salt and butter together until it resembles breadcrumbs.

6. Whisk the egg and a teaspoon of cold water using a fork in a small bowl. Then pour most of the egg into the food processor whilst it is still running until the mixture creates a ball. Leave about a tablespoons worth of egg mixture in the bowl to use later.

7. Take the pastry out of the food processor and bring it together into a ball. Place it down onto a floured surface and take about a third of the pastry, roll it out and use it to line a 23cm/9inch pie plate or 20cm/8inch round ceramic dish. Let any excess pastry hang over the edge and brush lightly with some of the remaining egg mixture.

8. Add the filling to the pie by gently spooning it in and evening the mixture out. For the pie lid, flour the surface once again and roll out the remaining pastry. To place on top of the pie, lift the pastry using the rolling pin and gently place it over the filling. Firmly press the edges together and trim to neaten, then seal the edges using a fork.

9.  Brush the top of the pastry with the remaining egg mixture and cut across the centre of the pie and place onto a baking tray and put into the oven. The pie will need to be baked for 40 minutes or until golden brown and the filling is piping hot.
