Christmas is so much fun, but it can be stressful too. Possibly the most stressful thing about it, is cooking Christmas dinner.
This year, we’re putting the fun back into the festive season, in the form of our Christmas Boxes. Designed to make your life so much easier, you can prep your Christmas meals stress-free, leaving you with extra time to relax!
Here are just some of the benefits you’ll enjoy, if you choose a Kerry’s Christmas Box.
Caters for All
We have two boxes for you to choose from, depending on your needs. Our original Christmas Box is full to the brim with delicious vegetables that will go great with your Christmas dinner – whether you plan to have turkey, duck, nut roast or something else.
Our large Christmas Box builds on this: in addition to the range of vegetables provided, you’ll also receive a hamper. This contains a selection of bread, cheese, meat, mince pies and wine (perfect for cracking open on Christmas Eve!); which will keep you going right through to the New Year.
So, whether you’re just looking for some tasty vegetables to accompany your feast on Christmas Day, or would like a hamper that will last you for the whole week, we’ve got you covered! Shop the Christmas section of our site here.
Does anyone actually enjoy the mad dash to the supermarket, to collect the turkey and frantically stock up on last-minute items before Christmas Day? No, we thought not.
Much like all of our other products, we’ll deliver your Christmas Box straight to your door. That means no long queues, or panicking because the supermarket has sold out of what you want.
Instead, you’ll get to relax in the warmth of your home, whilst you wait for us to deliver your box (we’ll be making deliveries on the 22nd and 23rd December this year) – and it’ll mean you’ve got plenty of time left to wrap up the last of your Christmas presents!
Plenty of Recipe Ideas
We specifically picked the vegetables for our Christmas Box with you in mind. This means that the ingredients can be as versatile as you want them to be. You may decide to serve all of your vegetables with Christmas dinner; or you may prefer to hold some of them back, to use over the week.
If you’ve chosen the latter, then you can wave goodbye to cold turkey sandwiches on Boxing Day. Our Christmas Box will help you to dish up lots of delicious leftovers. Here are three recipes to get you started:
This dish is so simple, yet it’s really tasty. All you need to do is throw your leftovers into a dish (sprouts, parsnip, pigs in blankets – whatever you’ve got left, you can use!), before drizzling oil and chutney over it, and cooking.
If you’ll be using raw meat, then make sure you cook this separately. Find this incredibly easy recipe here.
Parsnip and Carrot Dhal
Again, don’t be afraid to experiment, and throw in a range of vegetables to create a delicious dhal. The whole thing only takes 40 minutes to make, and you can switch rice for flatbread to make it a filling, yet light meal – perfect if you’re still feeling the effects from overindulging on Christmas Day!
Red Cabbage and Potato Hash
If there’s one thing you’re guaranteed to have leftover come Boxing Day, it’s roasties! Fry your leftover veg in a pan, whilst heating up your potatoes, before combining the two together. If you’re feeling fancy, fry an egg on top.
The full recipe can be found here.
Orders for our Christmas boxes are already piling up, and to get yours delivered in time, make sure you place an order with us by 5pm on Thursday 21st December at the very latest.
Alternatively, you can take a look at the other boxes we offer. All of our fruit and veg is seasonal, which means the selection changes year-round; and you’re always guaranteed only the freshest, tastiest ingredients.
Happy Christmas from all of us at Kerry’s Fresh!
