I have two fat lumps of grimsby smoked haddock.

Kedgeree for one, might try the other in a curry.

Smoked haddock curry? A brave idea.

CarlosFandango - 19 Mar 2020 09:27:24 (#3 of 339)

There is a war on, you know.

Smoked haddock and leek risotto. Benefit is you can put it in the oven and you aren't standing there stirring with most risottos.

Oven-baked risotto is like rice putting with unexpected bits. I tried it once. Never again.

All depends on how out of date your rice is.

Smoked haddock flan is rather nice. Eaten warm or cold.

Rhubarb crumble is on the menu sometime this week. The triffid is awake.

Made https://www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/chilli-con-carne-recipe with a can of corned beef - turned out fine. Washed the sauce off some baked beans and threw that in to bulk it out a bit more.

Had some suet and following dottie’s lead re soda bread made this: https://www.bbc.co.uk/food/recipes/spotted_dick_br

- nice, filling.

No tinned tomatoes or red beans in Waitrose last time I looked (Monday). This branch's stock control has always been a bit inadequate, though.

CarlosFandango - 19 Mar 2020 09:49:43 (#11 of 339)

Ah, yes. Breadmaking really ought to start today too. Can't abide supermarket bread and there aren't even any decent bakeries around here to not go to.

Dementor - 19 Mar 2020 09:51:32 (#12 of 339)

Ah. I got seven 200g chilli portions out of it, so I thought it was worth the ingredients.

might try the other in a curry.

You mean on a bed of garlic butter fried cabbage topped with a couple of poached eggs.

CarlosFandango - 19 Mar 2020 10:03:00 (#14 of 339)

Bastard. I now have to get out of bed and go and make that very thing.

I just found a huge bag of Bombay mix!

CarlosFandango - 19 Mar 2020 11:40:54 (#17 of 339)

BB April 2016 for the good stuff.

< I just found a huge bag of Bombay mix! >

Ooh, now I want one of those.

Matured in the bag.

Re steamed puddings as per the spotted dick. If someone has a slow cooker; they really come into their own here.

Grease a pudding basin, stuck some jam in the bottom. Mix up SF flour, sugar, eggs, butter + a bit of vanilla paste. Stick it on top of the jam in the pudding basin. Tie foil/baking paper to the top. Put in slow cooker and fill the slow cooker with boiling water about 2/3 of the way up. Cook on high for 3 hours. Perfect pudding.
