Christmas Bonanza | A Christmas Roast With Ross and Ross

I first came across Ross and Ross at the Christmas in July event I attended earlier this year and my first thought was ‘I love this brand’. I was so taken in by their products, their look and their overall vibe. The people who I met and were behind the brand were brilliant to talk to and I knew I’d just have to have a taste of what they’d have coming up in time for Christmas.

The one thing that really caught my eye on the Ross and Ross stand was their homemade curing kits because I made a mental note that someone in my family would love to find one under the Christmas tree but then I heard about their Christmas Roast Dinner Box.

Ross and Ross created this box to liven up your roast dinner this Christmas. They’d done lots of research which showed that people were a bit bored of having the same old thing every year and so they decided to do something about it. In the box you’ll find ‘Roast Turkey Rub’, ‘Roast Potato Oil’, ‘Brussel Sprouts Dust’ and ‘Pigs in Blankets Dust’.

Ross and Ross Roast Turkey Rub

I actually cooked a turkey last week and applied this rub, very generously, all over it! I’m a huge fan of the crispy skin and I couldn’t wait to see what it would taste like with this on it. I left it on for an hour before cooking, although Ross and Ross say to leave it overnight for best results, and seasoned with salt just before it hit the oven.

With hints of sweet paprika, tarragon and juniper this tasted absolutely stunning and after basting the turkey some of the flavour hit the stock underneath and made an even better turkey gravy. I’d highly recommend getting this if you’re looking to liven up your bird this Christmas.

Roast Potato Oil

No Christmas dinner would be right without roast potatoes, and they’re probably my favourite thing on every roast dinner. This oil is infused with smoke, rosemary and garlic so it really adds to the flavour.

Use the oil as you would any other, whether you fill a baking tray or whether you drizzle over, either way these make for some incredible tasting roasties. Oh, and they make excellent mid-week chips too!

Brussel Sprouts Dust

Brussel sprouts are definitely favourite vegetable. When they were first put on my plate as a little girl I told my Nan that I didn’t like them. ‘But Jade’, she said, ‘they’re just baby cabbages and you love cabbage!’. And the rest, they say, is history. I don’t think I’ve stopped eating them since, even when we get a bitter crop.

This Brussel sprout dust has such a collection of flavours; ginger, cumin, cardamom and coriander to name a few. Cook your sprouts how you like them, then cut them in half, throw in a knob of butter and a good sprinkle of this dust and fry them off to finish. You probably don’t even need gravy!

Pigs In Blankets Dust

Pigs in blankets are another favourite that rarely come out other than Christmas time, so why not make them extra special this year with some Pigs in Blankets Dust? Ross and Ross food have put this really lovely flavour combination together which will no doubt make a statement on your plate this Christmas.

This dust is sweet and spicy so sprinkle over those toasty piggies five minutes before they’re due to finish in the oven and give your taste buds the ultimate taste sensation this year. Oh, and if you don’t have them for a roast dinner, they’re amazing on Boxing Day as part of a buffet!
