The salt will keep for a year and is good sprinkled on roast beef.

250g Course Sea Salt (I used Cornish Sea Salt)
2 tsp Red Peppercorns
4 Star Anise
2 tsp Dried Chili Flakes

Step 1: Sterilise a 500ml jar
Step 2: Mix all ingredients together and place in cooled jar, seal and store in a cool, dry place until Christmas.

No Bake Zingy Lime Crumb Pie

This No-Bake Zingy Lime Crumb Pie is going to be my go to dessert this summer. A zingy lime cream encased in a sweet biscuit crumb - much like a no bake cheesecake...but better!

Honey and Peanut Butter Flapjacks

These flapjacks are now my official weekday grab and go breakfast. I make a big batch on Sunday evening and I'm all set for the week.

A handful of raisins makes a nice addition too.
