圣诞节吃什么?

英国人圣诞节吃什么?

火鸡。烤火鸡时,英国人也会用培根(熏肉)盖在火鸡上。火鸡里,通常会塞进很多的食物,统称stuffing, 包括了面包屑、芹菜、洋葱、盐和胡椒粉等等。吃火鸡通常配上cranberry sauce (蔓越莓酱)。

一定有烤马铃薯、烤parsnip 和swede 这三样东西。parsnip好像也叫欧洲萝卜/欧洲防风根。Swede 是一种黄色的芜菁,好像也叫蕉青甘蓝。

有一种小包菜,叫Brussel Sprouts,也叫球芽甘蓝. 很多英国人最痛恨这样菜了,因为,如果煮不好,会带有苦味。英国人是不能吃苦的,所以Brtussel Sprouts就成了全民痛恨的目标了。

可是,这又是圣诞节的传统菜,所以英国人年年恨,年年吃。

其实,我很爱吃Brussel Sprouts。我从小就爱吃苦瓜,这一点点的苦,和咱们的苦瓜比起来,算得了什么?

一种叫Bread Sauce (面包酱)的东西,看起来白白糊糊的,也一定少不了。大致就是用面白粉、牛奶、丁香、洋葱、黑胡椒、牛奶等制成的。

Bread sauce 不可少

吃了晚餐,就是吃圣诞布丁(Christmas Pudding)的时候了。圣诞布丁通常是用干果、豆子加上一种叫suet的动物油制成的。英国人在吃圣诞布丁前,会先把布丁加热,然后倒上白兰地酒,点火,布丁上就会燃起美丽的火焰。

还好,圣诞节一年一度,这些食物,我一年也只需要应酬一次。再见了,火鸡!再见了,圣诞布丁!
