You Can Eat Your Christmas Tree

Gaylord Palms Christmas Architecture St Augustine Atrium Tree (Scaletta 2882) - featured

If your Christmas tree is still sitting in your house, here’s an option instead of dragging it out to the curb:  Serve it for dinner.   There’s a new cookbook out from an “artisan baker and cook” in the U.K. named Julia Georgallis called “How to Eat Your Christmas Tree”.  It features dozens of recipes you can make using your tree.  For example, Christmas-Cured Fish uses almost a pound of needles for decoration and flavoring.  With Christmas Tree Pickles, you throw a handful of needles into a jar with your pickles for a month.   There’s even ice cream flavored with blue spruce needles and ginger.
