Winter warmers to make over the weekend


The January cold has well and truly come back to bite us this week. So, we’re looking forward to a weekend of frosty mornings, hearty food and hibernating by the fire.

This time of year is all about staying cosy with friends and family. And whether you’re hosting a dinner party or staying at home in your pyjamas, there’s no better feeling than filling up the table with home cooked delights.

Seasonal, organic ingredients are at the heart of tasty home-cooking. So for a bit of inspiration, we’ve pulled together some of our favourite seasonal winter warmer dishes to help you get the best from your organic meat box.

The Yorkshire Gourmet’s Casserole of Swillington Organic Chicken

Feast your eyes upon our delicious chicken in all its glory!

Is there anything more comforting than a big pot of generously seasoned chicken cooked down slowly in all its juices?

Well, it’s got to be up there.

This casserole is cooked in in white wine with crushed wild garlic bulbs, horns of plenty and winter chanterelle mushrooms, and a whole host of wild herbs. Head to the Yorkshire Gourmet’s Instagram post for the full list.

This one is baked over an open fire for added hearty points, but an oven would also suffice!

The Yorkshire Gourmet’s Roast Chicken

The Sunday classic.

Why not upgrade your roast this Sunday? Paul at The Yorkshire Gourmet has done his with a sweet chestnut and Yorkshire Sobrassada sausage stuffing, honey roast parsnips and goose fat roast potatoes. Wow.

BBC Good Food’s Toad in the Hole

The beauty of this is that it’s so easy to do and the perfect way to turn your Swillington rare breed pork sausages into a meal for the whole family.

Just oven roast your sausages for 15 minutes before adding in your batter and baking for 40 minutes. Served with lashings of gravy and fresh buttery greens you can’t go wrong.

Jamie’s Beef and Guinness Stew

If beef is your bag, use your Swillington organic beef cuts and create a delicious stew. One of the things we love most about stew is that it goes with whatever side dish you prefer. Mashed potatoes, roasted potatoes, potato dauphinoise. Or simply all of the potatoes at once. You decide.

This rich and silky stew from Jamie is made with Guinness, porcini mushrooms, fresh herbs, pearl barley and cheddar cheese.

If you’re looking for something heart-warming that is still reasonably healthy, then this pork stew is the choice.

Made with parsley and thyme dumplings, the dumplings soak up all that delicious flavour created by the cider, mustard and apple. As well as being a lovely seasonal dish, this stew is one of your five a day.
