A classic lunch favourite we'd love to share with you:

Princess Pantry Steak Sandwich

  • Allow 2 pieces sliced sourdough per person
  • one 120g piece of flattened rump steak
  • dash of olive oil
  • roasted tomatoes
  • washed rocket leaves
  • your favourite mayonnaise
  • salt and pepper
  • Princess Pantry's Princepessa's Balsamic Onion Jam

1. Heat heavy fry pan. Add a dash of oil and sizzle steak, season each side with a little salt and pepper.

2. When cooked remove from pan and set aside. Meanwhile spread mayonnaise on bread. Arrange rocket leaves on one slice.

3. Place steak on top of leaves. Add tomatoes and finish with a generous spoon of Onion Jam

4. Top with remaining bread. Serve immediately.

We invented a very special afternoon tea using our jams; we garnished cakes, layered jam through shortbread and filled tarts, all in all we had a lovely time making everything delicious and pretty. On the menu were Orange Flower Cakes, Harriet's Little Tarts and Hungarian Shortbread Snow Flake Fingers.

One of the joys of being a jam maker is trundling off to the country side and picking big basketfuls of fruit. We had a glorious day at Bilpin at Cedric's gorgeous orchard in preparation for massive preserved lemon production. Please see our earlier post on 5 ways with preserved lemons
