A polar blast has ripped through the southern states of Australia this weekend, so it was an easy decision to post another soup recipe. There’s nothing overly fancy about this one, it’s just a good tomato and vegetable soup – easy to make and great for cold weekends.
Using canned pears for this dessert is certainly the quickest easiest way to make it, but if you’ve got the time poaching fresh pears until they’re soft would make it just that much better.
I do find some unusual recipes as I go through all the cuttings. This one not only has an unusual name it also has an unusual topping. The base is fairly standard, but the meringue topping with coconut, orange rind and rice bubbles is quite different. I think it would work…….
This recipe was on a sheet Mum picked up off the butcher’s counter back in the ’80s. She gave a copy to me and I’ve made it many times over the years. It’s a good basic lamb stew, a great family meal.
