Steenbergs Organic Taste Of Baking Gift Bag Christmas Present Giveaway

Steenbergs Organic are a family-run Yorkshire company passionate about the environment and those who live in it. They are committed to Fairtrade and provide organic spices, loose leaf tea and organic cooking ingredients full of flavour and aroma, each with a known provenance, so you can be assured you get only the best. And they're one of my favourites.


I am truly delighted to have been sent the gorgeous Taste Of Baking Jute Bag gift set, which arrived beautifully packaged and opening it felt just like Christmas to me! This is not only a practical jute shopping bag, it is crammed with exciting goodies.


The Taste Of Baking bag is full of of Steenbergs baking ingredients, as well as a set of 3 very special T&G /Sophie Conran designed wooden spoons and a huge Steenbergs Tea Towel.


Organic Rose Water - a heady rose scented water ideal for cakes, biscuits and icing. You can also use it in savoury dishes to add a floral note.
Organic Orange Blossom Water - delicious in madeleines, cakes, baklava, egg custards and can also add a floral note to savoury dishes.
Steenbergs Natural Almond Extract - a traditional extract made with just water, alcohol and bitter almond oil. Delicious in macaroons, marzipan, almond paste, bakewell tarts, pastries and with apricots.
Organic Fairtrade Vanilla Extract - this gorgeous vanilla extract is made from Madagascan vanilla beans, with no added sugar and has been a staple of my storecupboard for years.
Organic Fairtrade Mixed Spice is a blend of sweet spices for flavouring cakes, biscuits, sweet pies and pastries, baked apples, crumbles and pies. The lovely warm aroma reminds everyone of Christmas...
Organic Lemon Extract - this organic lemon extract is on an organic sunflower oil base. Brilliant for biscuits and cakes and my favourite choice for Lemon Drizzle Cake.
Organic Fairtrade Cinnamon Sugar - Great as a topping on creme brulee or baked fruit, crumbles, pies and cakes - and perfect for 5 Minute Cinnamon Whirls.
Steenbergs Bicarbonate of Soda
Gluten Free Organic Baking Powder
A specially designed organic unbleached cotton tea towel, featuring artist Rob Blades' vision of a beautiful rural field.
Last but not least, the beautiful T&G /Sophie Conran designed set of 3 Wooden Spoons.


As a special treat Steenbergs kindly sent my Chai Tea loving partner a Chai Masala Spice Mix so that he can brew gallons of his own Chai, and a pack of their special Organic Gingerbread Chai. He is ecstatic. If any of his workmates read this (and I know you do) I apologise for the fact he'll talk of nothing else...


It would be remiss of me not to take the opportunity to bake, I hardly needed any excuse and I've never used Rose Water before, so I obliged. We experimented with Rose Water and Orange Blossom flavoured meringue for an unusual Eton Mess with sweet cream and strawberries...


And because it's Bonfire Night, Ginger Cake fresh from the oven with warm Cinnamon Sugar icing...


The Steenbergs Organic Taste Of Baking Jute Gift Bag is sweet, organic and vegan, so it's perfect to bring some baking inspiration to just about anyone - it even comes with a gift card to add your own special message. Available now priced £50 from the Steenbergs website, where you can also find a host of gifts and delicious ingredients to bring some real flavour to your teas, cooking and baking.
