Ok, this is a STRANGE question, I know....:)

You may know I am going to Leeds... You also may know that I can't stand Christmas-pudding... What I love is the brandy creme... So my question is... How long is the best before date on such things??? Will I manage to put it in my suitcase (I assume it's cold in the luggage room at the plain) and bring it home to Norway AND have it for Christmas???

(This reminds me of the "clotted creme" thread I had when I moved to UK.... oh... it's TWO years ago!!!!!! The time flies!)

Thanks in advance.

:hug:C.

Do you mean the brandy sauce ? If so you can buy it in cartons that will have a long shelf life.

Oh yes, creme brulee is yummi, yummi. I am used to make creme brulee for dessert at Christmas, but this Christmas I think I have to make both Christmas pudding and creme brulee.

"Kanelboller" yes, we have it here in Norway too, but it's not a Christmas "thing" here. We have it all year round... It's buns with cinnamon, sugar and butter. I make some very nice! If you ever come to Norway, I will bake some for you! :) BUT I am not sure if "Kanelbuller" in Sweden is the same as "Kanelboller" in Norway. Wonder if "Kanelbuller" is buns with more then cinnamon? Yes, I think.... HELLOOOOOOO, I know there are some Swedish here... HELP us out! :-D

(I am a food-wreck, just as Kaznails... I LOOOOVE food... And that's what I miss the most with Liverpool, going to the grocery store... The selection is SO much wider then in Norway!)

brandy sauce with mince pies, especially if you add some brandy to the mince meet a couple of days before making the pies:lick: and eat the pies whilst still hot.
Calvados is wonderful in coffee, takes me back to living in Paris.
And sherry trifle, and Stollen and those little rum truffles that you get from the German chrismas fairs.
You guys are so bad for diets:lol:
