RASPBERRY DUMPLINGS

Golden syrup dumplings have always been a family favourite, served up with a dollop cream or ice cream they’re delicious.  This is the first time though I’ve seen a recipe for raspberry dumplings.  Despite the name on the recipe I’m not sure they’re native to Canada!!  Of course, you can use fresh raspberries, just gently cook them with some sugar, water and butter, drain them and reserve the juice to mix with the golden syrup.

VEGEMITE MUFFINS

It’s back-to-school next week for schools here in Victoria so I thought these Vegemite Muffins might be something for their lunchboxes.  I’d probably leave the green capsicum out as not all kids like the green stuff, but the vegemite and cheese combination should win them over.

BAKED PUMPED LEG OF LAMB WITH MARMALADE GLAZE

I’ve already posted a recipe for Pumped Leg of Lamb, but instead of boiling the meat this recipe bakes it in dough and then coats it with a marmalade glaze. That makes it a bit more work, but the result could be quite good.  Although the original recipe suggests either mutton or lamb, pork would also work very well.

 

PICKLED ZUCCHINI

This recipe is for those who have a thriving vegetable patch and at crop of zucchinis about to ripen – every summer back in the 70s that was certainly the case.  Although I’m not sure it is now.  Back then there were plenty of slice and cake recipes to use them up and pickling them to serve with salads was another idea.  If you haven’t got the homegrown variety this recipe only uses a kilogram so it wouldn’t be too expensive to buy them.
