Lamb is such a versatile meat. You can roast it, casserole it, grill and bbq it, whatever you have the time or the taste for. The page of lamb recipes that Mum kept from July 1997 showcases this versatility. This recipe give a basic lamb chop a real lift and makes a change from just eating it with tomato sauce.
Zucchini don’t have a lot of flavour by themselves and it’s a bit unusual to find them in a salad, but this recipes which adds pasta, beans, mustard and red capsicums seems to take care of that problem.
This is another version of Tomato Relish, unlike the other one I posted last year, this one has apples and sultanas added into the mix. It’s still a two day job though, as you need to let the tomatoes and onions sit overnight with the salt on them, before adding the other ingredients and cooking until thick the next day.
While rhubarb is not popular in my household it was in Mum’s. She made a lot of relishes and chutneys with the produce from Dad’s garden, although I’m not sure she made this one. Personally I think making relishes and chutneys is much easier than jams as they don’t need to set. As long as you cook them until they’re thick they work really well.
