As the title of the book says, this is so simple, the most time consuming was peeling the garlic. I bought some local garlic at the growers market this morning with this recipe in mind. I used 310 g evoo as that was all I had left, the smaller cloves broke down as it cooked so doesn't look as good as the photo in the book. It has a lovely sweet taste, there was a small amount that didn't fit in the jars, instead of wasting it I'm going to make some Caesar salad dressing.

Made this cake today's lovely light cake, I only had DH home-brew Ginger Beer to use, and didn't have stem  ginger replaced with crystallized ginger, very quick and easy recipe to follow. Cooked for 40 min. We found the ginger flavor to be very mild. I gave the recipe 10 out of 10. DH gave it a 9 said he would have given it 10 if it was iced, which I don't think is needed.

Don't know if this has been mentioned on here before,
I found out during the week, I have downloaded an app for my ipad called Zinio. Or you can download to your computer, iphone, or tablet. There are 97 e-mags to choose from, better homes and gardens, taste, the o mag to name a few,
You just need to login into your library's web site all the info should be there use your library card number, create an account and then start reading. I am pretty sure this is Australian wide, the good thing is they are the current issue and there is no expiry date, yours to keep for ever and free.

Name of Recipe: Strawberry Liqueur Conserve

This made 3 small jars of jam and 1 small bottle of liqueur, the recipe was given to me by an old friend many years ago. Tonight was the first time I made this recipe in the TMX.



500 grams strawberries
1/2 cup  sugar
1/2 cup gin

Hull strawberries and combine with gin and sugar, in a jar or glass bowl, cover and stand for 3 days, shake or stir gently several times to dissolve sugar.
After 3 days strain and bottle liquid, nice over ice cream.


250 grams fresh strawberries
drained Strawberries from liqueur
190 grams sugar
2 teaspoons lemon rind  (I used 1 lemon)
2 tablespoons lemon juice (I used juice of 1 lemon)

Place all in TMX 100 degrees 40 minutes, speed 1, the last 10 minutes I cooked on Varoma. or until mixture reaches a spreadable consistency when cooled on a plate.  Pour into sterilised jars and seal.

Introduce Yourself / Another newbie here from WA
« on: January 30, 2011, 08:50:11 am »
I have been lurking here for a few weeks, thought it time to come out of hiding and introduce myself.
My wonder DH surprised me with a TM for christmas. I saw them years ago and just couldnt justify one, a month or so before xmas I was at a friend of a friends house and she had one, and just happened to have some info so I  left it  lying around, and thats all it took. Whish I had it when the kids were still at home.
I have been having fun making lots of recipes and cant wait till I can stand of a long time to make more a (knee replacement just before xmas).
I tied making one of my old recipes chocolate slice in Thermie, but it was very crumbly, first time it has failed, do I need a adjust ingriedents in TM.
We call TM thermie, the lovely lady that sold DH TM came around when I was able to move around a bit and showed me how to use the TM, thats when all the fun started, DH is very impressed with it and has been cooking too. A few weeks ago we had a demo, everyone that was there loved the TM.
Sorry this has gone on a bit. If you get this far thanks for reading.
