The thing I like about this recipe is that you don’t have to fry the onions and sausages before you put them in the casserole dish to cook – saving one step not to mention the washing up. It’s not a fancy dish, but maybe a good quick one for a busy night.
This one is out of my recipe collection, although I suspect it’s a recipe that Mum gave to me. As you can see I typed it up and stuck it in my book with cellotape, which now makes it a bit hard to read. If you’re having trouble it’s simply: 1 cup cold tea, 1 cup raisins, 1 cup caster sugar. Soak for 1 hour. Add 2 cups Self Raising Flour, beat well cook for 1 hour in mod oven – 180oC. When it’s cool you slice and butter it – quick and tasty.
As my granddaughters will tell you, I love licorice. They very kindly add extra to any lolly bags they’re making for me and even give me some from their own, such lovely girls……….. So when I saw this Licorice Ice Cream recipe I couldn’t resist sharing it, although I think, like me, you’d need to love licorice.
This selection of Tapas delicacies was published in the Herald Sun in about 2002. Of course they are much more common now, but this selection are fairly simple to make and as the accompanying article says are ideal “taken with a glass of sherry, beer or wine”.
I almost didn’t post this recipe because Vitari is no longer made by Nestle. I changed my mind though on googling it and deciding you could use Weis Sorbet instead or at a push a good ice cream. It looks so tasty in the picture I thought it was worth doing.
When I was growing up Dad grew a healthy rhubarb crop each year and Mum mainly stewed it and served it with ice cream as a dessert I don’t think she ever made jam with it. It’s never been one of my favourites, but I think adding orange and lots of sugar could make into a nice jam.
