    Kefir or kephir, is a fermented milk drink similar to a thin yogurt that is made from kefir grains. The drink originated in the Caucasus, Eastern Europe and Russia, where it is prepared by inoculating cow, goat, or sheep milk with kefir grains, but being allergic to all things dairy, I have...

    Avocados - That's A Lot of Guacamole!

    What do you do with/how do you serve your avocados? I like to fill them with tuna, crab or shrimp salad, avocado toast, or a strawberry, avocado salad with poppy seed dressing, to name a few. How about you? Recently came across these long-neck avocados, grown in Florida. That's a lot of Guac &...

    Which Fruit Do You Use Most Often?

    A spin off from What Vegetable Do You Use Most Often?; which fruits do you use most often? I find this hard to answer as (its bad, I know) I don't eat a lot of fruit at all and when I do eat it, I tend to eat what's in season. Maybe I eat strawberries most often - but that is mainly to do with...

    Wonky Fruit and Vegetables

    Morrison's supermarket have recently started doing on-line deliveries so I've been trialling them. I'm very impressed by the 'wonky fruit and veg' offerings. These are items normally rejected by supermarkets because of size or shape. I think some other supermarkets are also doing this. I've...

    How to get dried fruit evenly distributed?

    I've recently made two versions of Bara Brith (a yeasted fruit bread/tea loaf). Most recipes for yeasted fruit bread suggest adding the dried fruit after the first rising, which is what I did. This is really not very easy and I'm not happy with the result. Does anyone (@medtran49?) know how to...

    What is your favourite jam/conserve?

    Here I'm meaning sweet jam - the sort you spread on bread or perhaps use in a dessert or in a sandwich cake. I think in the US its called jelly sometimes. What is your favourite? I tend to vary but at at the moment I have a liking for plum jam. Its that lovely tartness. Strawberry, I think...

    Fruit in savoury dishes

    My husband is rather anti fruit in savoury dishes. He can't understand the fruit sauces served with mackerel and with roasted meat, for example, and was horrified at the thought of a prawn salad with mango, and apple in a Waldorf salad. I've pointed out to him he likes citrus with some...

    Recipe Tropical Ice Cream (Kiwi, Strawberries, and Coconut)

    Here's something to sprinkle that toasted sugar on, though it's very flavorful by itself. You'll be forgiven for thinking this looks like strawberry ice cream: the red of the strawberries bled through everything, and the green of the kiwi and (no surprise) white of the coconut got absorbed. To...

    Recipe Pickling Dragon Fruit

    Dragon fruit is, quite simply, the supermodel of the jungle. It's absolutely gorgeous...so much so that I almost regret cutting it open and pickling it. Almost. The inside of the dragon fruit tastes like a mild kiwi. This is a bit of a disappointment after seeing such a glorious exterior. I...

With fish and seafood it was sardines or more accurately still is, I can't stand even the smell of them. I can't name a...
