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.

ROAST PORK WITH APPLE SAUCE FOR CHRISTMAS

I think this recipe, published by the Women’ Weekly in 1974, shows how differently we buy meat these days – no need to ask the butcher to remove the bones, its already done for you now.  That’s great, but I don’t like the way its wrapped in netting.  I find that it sticks to the crackling and is hard to get off.  Laying the meat out, stuffing it and then tying it with cooking string like this recipe suggests is a much better idea.  I’ve included the apple sauce recipe although it’s not like Mum’s version.  She left out the cloves and lemon and always put a knob of butter in after she’d pureed it.

QUICK SALMON PATE

I confess to liking salmon, whether it’s smoked, baked, grill or even tinned, so that’s probably why I really like this salmon pate.  You need to use red salmon to get a good flavour, that makes it a little more expensive, but it does make a good amount.  As it says it’s quick, easy to make and everyone seems to like it.  Also, leftovers are great on toast this next morning!!!

CHICKEN COOKED IN CIDER

A couple of years ago my youngest son had a great holiday in Tasmania and came back with several bottles of a new cider he’d discovered – Pagan Cider.  Since then we always have a few bottles in the fridge, one of which I’m now going to use to try this chicken recipe – guess I’d better make it when he’s coming for dinner.
