When I look around the shops and supermarkets of today - loaded with food from exotic places, I think of the gems that thrilled me in the past and wondered if anyone out there would give their right arm for an old fashioned Christmas party.
Do you remember .........
Meat paste sandwiches
Jelly and blancmangec
Fairy cakes
Butterfly buns
Iced buns with hundreds and thousands on top ....... or silver balls ......... or sugar strands
Jam tarts .... with home made jam and lemon curd

Those were my favourites ...... how about you??????

I'm not familiar with some of those things... but a few years ago, when I was president of my ladies' reenacting group, I put out a challenge at Christmas for everyone to do something they had never done before, that their 19th-century counterpart would have done at holiday time.

I made a plum pudding from scratch, complete with hard sauce. I surprised myself at my own success. I didn't know what was going to happen.

This year will be my third plum pudding. :-)

Fairy cakes are small sponge cakes which have the top sliced off and a dollop of icing into which you set the two halves of the top....like fairy wings, I guess. I suspect butterfly buns may be something similar but I'm not familiar with the term.Nutty, you can keep your meat paste sandwiches ( barf) but I'll raise you Gentlemans Relish on hot toast........

In my family it wasn't so much what but when. Every year, we would get a visit from my uncle singing a rousing version of "Christmas is Coming...". He only lived a block away. He would be delivering a batch of fresh home-made Kielbasa (Polish Sausage) which was a Christmas staple at our house. I also had an aunt a block away and we would all walk to her house to sample some Christmas baking. This was around 10:00 - 11:00 PM Christmas Eve. She always did her baking Christmas eve night, sometimes all through the night, she was and still is amazing! Homemade Krushchicki (probably spelled that wrong), Pierogi and Polish Bread. We'd sing Christmas Carols going from house to house, eating homemade whatever and having a blast.

My memories of Christmas are among the sweetest gifts my parents ever gave me. Few if any are about gifts and gift-giving but of the get-togethers and the laughter and of course the food! I don't know if this was the intent of the thread, I might have creeped a bit, but it sure brought a smile to my face this afternoon......thanks!

My ex-boyfriend's mother used to make this German liver-loaf concoction called pritt. (I don't know if that's the right way to spell it or not.) She'd make this loaf, slice it up, fry it, and put pancake syrup on it. She said it was the only way she could get the boys to eat liver. I went home with him one Christmas... his mom was a great cook, and I like liver, but I never could decide about the pritt.

The old story is in my family, that a great-grandmother had thrown out a perfectly good fruitcake, in front of several drooling children, because she thought the little green fruits in it were "pizen."

I regret that my family situation growing up did not produce any especially happy memories. However, I'm making up for that now. I heard it's never too late to have a happy childhood. :-)

It's interesting and not a little horrifying what's happened to our holidays in the last 200 years or so (the most recent 50 being the most grievous offenders!), and not only in regard to food. This whole holiday thing has gotten completely out of hand! In the Middle Ages (I am admittedly a mediaevalist---get your pillows ready), a holiday usually had some religious connotation--a saint's day, an ancient pre-christian earth-based occasion tarted up for the Church, etc., but the upshot of the deal was that you didn't have to work---hurrah! So you could play games, play music, dance, eat & drink a bit more and (if you were lucky)a bit better than usual, but there wasn't this hideous commercial build-up we're subjected to nowadays.

It's interesting to consider that as recently as the 1840s, Christmas still wasn't really such a major event in the calendar (another nice pre-christian term!), but the marriage of V & A, the resulting importation of various Teutonic traditions and the publication of Dickens' "A Christmas Carol" were amongst the factors contributing to it becoming Such A Big Deal. But even the Cratchits just wanted a nice meal and a bit of hot gin (blecchh!) punch and some familial togetherness to feel they'd had a merry Christmas and that God had blessed them, every one. Then came the Christmas cards.....

My own mother, growing up in 1940s Warwickshire (admittedly in wartime, but still...) remembers fresh oranges as being amongst the greatest treats of Christmastime! It is indeed high time we make the effort to re-institute culinary traditions into our holidays, before we're all eating whatever Walt Disney & Co. deem appropriate for our "holiday feast" as dictated by Mickey Mouse and the advertising mascots of Toys R Us.....!

Thanks weepiper.

One of the most wonderful Christmas foods I've ever eaten was something I was introduced to by a family of people who were second and third generation Dutch/Americans.

It was made with almond paste and some other things (like maybe flour and eggs), and baked into bars that somewhat resembled fudge brownies in texture (but not in taste). They had a delicious subtle almond flavor, were slightly chewy, and just about melted in the mouth.

I've always been very sorry I never got the recipe. If there are any people here of Dutch ancestry who know how to make these almond bars, could you please steer me in the direction of a good recipe?

Meat paste sandwiches are ( and don't read any further if you are at all squeamish)....made from potted meat paste, which purports to be of various flavours...beef, chicken etc.etc. Worryingly they are all of the same consistency ( that of mud), the same colour ( that of pale mud)and much the same taste ( you've guessed it). Heaven alone knows what bit of the animal, should an animal actually be involved, is used to make meat paste but my father always used to say it was ( forgive the vulgarity) "lips and arseholes"....and I suspect he was right.

Nutty,

You forgot the Mince Pies and Sausage Rolls.

I always used to prefer the fish paste myself. You don't see it very often here in the USA so I'll make my own. Half white fish and half smoked fish mashed up with butter, add salt and white pepper to taste. It's much better than the bought stuff. Put a dollup on a cracker and top it with a cocktail shrimp.

Don't make them too soon before the party though or the crackers will go soggy.

And home made jam tarts, mmmmmm. I make them, but I can't find those shallow jam tart tins over here. All we can get are muffin pans which are too deep.

When I was a student (in the dark ages) I used to work in a bakery in the holidays. One of my jobs was sausage rolls. We used to roll out a 12 foot strip of pastry, pipe the long 12 foot of sausage meat into it, roll it up and then cut it to size using a piece of wood for a template. Watching my mother make hers individually by hand, I (cocky dbrevil) ventured to tell her the "right" way to do them.
NOT a smart move. My ear was red for days!

One of the things that i miss out here is the christmas dinner. Though we have turkey there's no yorkshire pu, no real bacon ( only some horrible stuff that's all fat and no meat and called american bacon) no stuffing or sausage meat. No christmas pud and no crackers so we can all sit around with stupid hats feeling like berks. Then there's no Brandy snaps just to fill up the holes that are left after the christmas pud with fresh cream. Also the brazilians have there meal ( turkey hsmoked ham etc.) on christmas eve and not on christmas day, we have it around 11pm and then everybody opens there prezzies.

Mom actually still makes, every year, tons and tons of little marzipan things (fruit, animals, etc) all in different either appropriate (if she's doing it) or inappropriate (if her grandkids help) colors, little cups, little plastic leaves on the fruit, etc. And chocolate orange peel, and daiquiri balls, and brandy balls, and those cookies with candied fruit on top (red and green, whatever there is; one year it was candied tomatoes and lotus leaves, but it's still yummy). Florentines, with dark chocolate bottoms. And probably a few I'm not remembering, like the hazelnut ones. We have her superb chocolate mousse at Thanksgiving. For $mas we always have rocket crumple (recipe already posted somewhere) and her gulyás leves (goulash soup) but she doesn't make it quite the way she used to, I think she buys premade, preformed nokedli (the kind of pasta things that go in) instead of making the dough herself and making the nokedli from that, and uses I think something like hot dogs instead of the Hungarian kólbász, but it's still worth several helpings. The sister who's been hosting $mas for the last nigh-unto 20 years also makes a kickass spaghetti, and I take the smoked turkey I get from the firm up and we eat that on Boxing Day, when the extended family come, and she bakes breads (chocolate zucchini, banana nut) which we graze on in between meals. Not to mention the coffee, tons and tons of coffee. Yum.
