Brought to you by Crazy Jack Organic


Whether it’s melt-in-the-mouth mince pies or deliciously sweet stollen, baking with dried fruit and nuts offers versatility for all your seasonal baked goodies and traditional treats. This Christmas why not go organic and choose ingredients which don’t contain any preservatives, such as those within Crazy Jack’s organic baking range. Ideal for all your festive bakes, the range includes a selection of dried mixed fruit, including sultanas, raisins and apricots, as well as flaked almonds, walnut pieces and desiccated coconut. Perfect for popping in a Panettone, dried raisins give added texture and sweetness, while the rich, sweet flavours of dried mixed fruit ensure your Christmas cake is dark and succulent. Traditional dried apricots can be used to compliment a booze-soaked Christmas pudding, while mince pies wouldn’t be the same without the deep, juicy flavours of sultanas. And don’t forget the nuts too. While walnut pieces give Chocolate Yule Logs added crunch, why not smother your stollen with flaked almonds for extra flair, or make some coconut snowball cookies with the kids, that will be perfect for the Christmas cookie tray. Whatever bake you decide to make this Christmas, make sure dried mixed fruit and nuts are aplenty to inject life and flavour and give your dishes a boost that is guaranteed to impress your guests. Sourced from farmers all over the world, Crazy Jack products never contain preservatives and are grown as nature intended.
