Easy

Four persons

Preparation Time: 20 mins

Cooking Time : 1/2 hr

Ingredients

1 large head of broccoli ( 1/2 kilo ) crisp and dark green ( not yellowing )!

1 medium onion peeled and diced

50 grams butter

1 -1.5 litres of home made chicken or beef stock

A dash of cream (Optional )

Freshly ground black pepper

Method

  1. Choose a nice crisp, dark green head of broccoli. If it is soft or at all yellowing, it is not fresh. It will also yellow if you keep it in the fridge for more than a day, so it is best to use it straight away.
  2. Place broccoli in a large bowl of salted water for five minutes and if picked straight from your garden, inspect it carefully for any caterpillars!
  3. Trim stalk and cut up into…

What's Cooking In Jane's Kitchen

Now that we have a little Mango fever going here, here is another unusual recipe which is also delicious!

It goes well with hot curries and wraps, it is ultimately sweet!

I’ve had fun photographing this one, using colored backgrounds to some of the photos, pretty cool hey?

I am planning on developing this idea further……

Ingredients

1 ripe Mango

Juice of 1 lime and finely grated zest

salt pepper freshly ground

Slices of lime to garnish

Method

1. Wash and cut open your mango. To do this hold the mango in front of you long ways, i.e. stalk end nearest to you. It is from one end to the other that the thin seed lies, about 1 cm in thickness. Make two long ways cuts, leaving a 1 cm…

I was just pointing my camera in the opposite direction, when I heard a multiple splashing sound. I moved the lens to my left and clicked! A second later and they were gone……

My Meat Sauce For Pasta ©

October 26, 2017

What's Cooking In Jane's Kitchen

A good meat sauce recipe is essential to every household! The variations are endless! It is an easy recipe and much loved by all, so I just thought I would include it today, as the weather gets cooler and the rain is finally coming gently down. You do want to buy some good mince though, ideally from a butcher, rather than the Supermarket, fat free….. The choice of pasta is up to you, but it is excellent with ‘Pennes” because the sauce runs into all the tubes!

John’s request, for an easy meal! And for Hanna, who calls it , ” My Sunny Meat Sauce!”

My Indian Curry ©

Nothing like a good curry……….

 

My Indian Curry ©

What's Cooking In Jane's Kitchen

This is my favourite ‘Beef Curry.’ If you have the good fortune of having a friend traveling to the East, ask them to bring you back freshly ground ‘Curry Mix’ from the ‘Souks.’ It is the best!

This curry was created after a visit to Qatar, a few years ago and on visiting the ‘Spice Souk,’ I purchased  500 g of their ‘Curry Mix.’ I will never forget the Souk, with all its colour and fragrance and bustle of life and sealed tightly in a jar, it is still good today!

Cooking curries always involves lots of ingredients, so you need to devote your day to preparing this feast! It is well worth the effort and perfect for a special occasion!

If you have never cooked a curry before and this is especially for my young cooks, here is where to start! Do ‘all’ your shopping the day before! And…
