HOMEMADE ICE CREAM

I suspect it’s the peppermint crisps, the crunchie bars or whatever chocolate treat you feel like adding that will be the main appeal of this ice cream for the kids.  Even so it’s something they can make themselves, although I doubt all 3 bars will make it into the mix.

PUMPKIN DAMPER

Not sure you can get much more Australian than damper, especially if you serve it with a lamb stew.  Originally it was a simple flour and water mix baked over a campfire, now recipes like this one have gone a step further using wholemeal flour, cinnamon and pumpkin. It still goes well with lamb though.
