Fancy winning yourself a hamper of products from Del Monte? I posted a recipe for a Baked Pear & Amaretto Cheesecake on Friday which you can make yourself at home, using a few additional ingredients to create a delicious dessert.
To be in with a chance to win the hamper, simply share with me your favourite childhood memories of Sunday teatime treats. What did your mum serve you that, if you recall it today, brings back those precious memories?
Our Sunday teatime used to consist of sandwiches (I loved tinned pink salmon, mixed with plenty of malt vinegar and topped with sliced cucumber on white bread which had been spread with proper butter) along with a cup of tea, poured from the teapot through the tea strainer in to a cup and saucer, and for pudding I really used to look forward to tinned fruit cocktail with evaporated milk. It somehow seemed very grown up when I was a child; my siblings and I used to argue over who had a coveted cherry in their bowl.
Canned fruit can be just as healthy as fresh fruit as it’s picked when fully ripe and processed immediately, preserving high levels of vitamins and minerals. Not only that, but it has a long shelf life, thereby reducing food waste from spoilage. It makes preparing and cooking simple and quick too.
To enter, email your childhood memories, along with your name and address to: DelMonteGiveaway@freycob.co.uk by midnight on Sunday 4th December. A winner will be chosen at random from all entries received. The prize will be sent directly from Del Monte to the winner’s home address. UK entrants only.
