Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Chicken stock

    • Pamsy on December 13, 2021

      Used a Guinea fowl carcass. Cooked overnight on low for 14 hours. Lovely clear colour. No furious fast boiling and kitchen doesn't end up steamy. Good reward for little effort.

  • Rum and raisin spotted dick

    • Pamsy on November 13, 2019

      Made half the recipe which filled 4 quarter pint plastic pudding basins. I only steeped the sultanas for about 2 hours and you couldn't taste the rum. Next time try to soak overnight and possibly increase the rum. Very nice, served with custard and almost as good the following evening after reheating in microwave. Between the slow cooker and the plastic basins and lids, steamed puds are now so easy! I think these could be successfully frozen.

  • Coconut & lime rice pudding

    • Pamsy on March 22, 2020

      This is good, although I'm not sure why you'd cook this in the slow cooker when it's just as easy to cook on the hob. See recipe for my additional ideas.

  • Smoked gammon & mixed bean chowder

    • etcjm on February 05, 2019

      Yes it was easy and very frugal, but a number of things weren't quite right. The cloves over powered and it was just too watery. You could up the quantities of whatever soup/lentil/barley mix you use. Yes the ham was tender, yes it was great when I had a busy weekend, but when no-one wanted to eat it, day 3 I just couldn't face it for lunch and it ended up in the bin. I will try one more thing from this book, but two things haven't been great so far...

  • Spiced lamb tagine

    • Sheepyw on April 01, 2020

      Makes a lot - 6/8 portions

  • Warm beetroot & brown bean salad

    • Clog on May 27, 2020

      While I prefer it with borlotti beans, this works well with canellini beans too - a little less firm and an earthier taste.
