Described as one of the ‘luxuries of the table’, Stilton cheese has a long association with the twelve days of Christmas. Our ‘Twelfth Nights’ are fine oat & butter biscuits, sweetened with
muscovado sugar & black treacle – a perfect match for rich, mellow blue cheese.
In the bleakness of midwinter the twelve days of Christmas were seen as a time to entertain neighbours and friends. On New Year’s Eve a bowl of hot spiced ale, known as a wassail bowl, would be shared at parties or carried from door to door. Mummers, known as tipteerers, would perform an outdoor play about St George. ‘Wassailing’, sometimes called ‘howling’ in Sussex, was a ceremony held on Twelfth Night, to ensure that an orchard was fruitful that year. Twelfth Night parties marked the end of the Christmas season, and a return to everyday life.
