yep mince is hamburg or ground mince. no specifici fat content - we can buy all different grades of it but one shop's 'premium' s not the same fat content as another.

when we say 'mince' we always mean beef mince as we mostly call the others with both names eg: 'pork mince' 'chicken mince', 'pork & veal mince'

a punnet is a container we get our berries in (though they can vary in size) usually around 500g of berries i think. i'll double check the amount of blueberries shortly :)

Geez mate, everything in Oz is SHE - she'll be right mate, she's sweet, she's apples - all mean the same.  All's fine.

Si, certo - questo e orzo di Barilla?  (Yes, certainly, this is Orzo from Barilla?)

Orzo in Italian is barley - but Barilla put it out as a variety of risoni - confused ???

Compare the info on risoni in Australia and Orzo in US - not sure why the company did it?

Orzo is pretty common in the States, not related to any one company.  BTW, i made that recipe tonight and it turned out great.  I'll try to get it "computerized" tonight yet (today for you guys)

Ultra-Heat Treated milk - long life milk in cartons/tetrapaks - don't need refrigeration.

And not likely to have bugs either !! to interfere with the culture.

SI unit of energy - about 4.2 kilojoules to a Calorie (that you use for measuring energy in food)   - I think.  But the food Calorie is really a kilocalorie ???
