Curry Sauce For Chips
Recipe from IrishAmericanMom.com
Serves 4 Prep time 15 minutes Cook time 30 minutes Total time 45 minutes Region British
1 large onion (peeled and diced) 1 large apple (peeled and diced) 1 teaspoon minced garlic 1 teaspoon minced ginger 2 tablespoons curry powder 1 teaspoon turmeric 1 teaspoon ground cumin 1 teaspoon ground coriander seeds 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon 3 tablespoons canola or vegetable oil 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour 2 cups chicken stock 1 teaspoon worcestershire sauce 2 teaspoons sugar 1 tablespoon tomato puree salt and pepper (to taste) 1/4 cup golden raisins (optional)
- Prepare the spice blend by mixing the curry powder, turmeric, cumin, ground coriander seeds and cinnamon in a small bowl.
- Heat the oil in a large skillet. Add the onion and saute for 4 minutes over medium heat..
- Add the diced apple and cook for another 2 minutes.
- Add the minced ginger and garlic and stir.
- Add the spice blend to the onion mixture and stir constantly as it cooks for 2 more minutes.
- Add the flour and stir constantly as it cooks for 2 minutes. Scrape the bottom of the pan to prevent burning.
- Gradually add the chicken stock, stirring constantly to prevent lumps from forming.
- Add worcestershire sauce, sugar, tomato puree and stir. Season with salt and pepper.
- Bring the sauce to boiling point, stirring constantly. Then reduce the heat to low and simmer the sauce for 15 minutes.
- Turn the heat off, and allow the sauce to cool slightly before blending. When cool enough add the sauce to a blender or food processor and blitz until smooth.
- Return the sauce to the pan over medium heat. Add golden raisins if desired.
- Serve hot with a side of chips or french fries.
- Peel the potatoes. Halve each potato lengthwise, then quarter it lengthwise. Cut each quarter in half lengthwise, then each eighth size piece in half again. Each potato should yield 16 long chips.
- Add the sliced potatoes into a large saucepan and cover the chips with water. Season with salt. Bring the water to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for just 4 minutes.
- Drain the chips into a colander and just let them sit there for 5 to 10 minutes to steam dry.
- Pour the oil into a large dutch oven or deep frying pan, bringing the level to a little under half full. Heat the oil to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Lower some of the parboiled chips into the hot oil. Don’t put too many chips into the pan at once or they will stick together. Cook in 2 to 3 separate batches.
- Cook them for 8 to 10 minutes until they are just turning golden.
- Carefully remove them from the oil with a metal strainer, and place them on a plate covered with a paper towel to soak up any excess grease.
- Serve hot with burgers, chicken or beer battered fish and mushy peas.

Babsie, looking forward to the next schwammerl season
Red and yellow peppers
onions, red or shallots
Grill the whole peppers in the oven until they are black on the outside. Leave them in a pan to cool down and to catch the juices.
Chop the courgette in spears and half the onions or leave whole. Grill on high heat as well, add the halved tomatoes later.
When everything has cooled down, peel the peppers, arrange on a plate and season with salt and pepper. Sprinkle generously with olive oil, chopped up basil and parsley, and the juices you caught earlier.
Spargel - Asparagus
Peel your asparagus as lightly as possible, then boil in salty water for about 10 minutes, with the lid closed. Use a tall pot so that the delicate asparagus heads are not in the water, as they cook much faster. Serve with potatoes, sauce hollandaise and, optionally, rolled up in cooked ham.
Chop up all the vegetables in big pieces so they can retain their consistency through the cooking process. Cover the bottom of a big pot with
olive oil, add
5 cloves of garlic
and cook on low heat for a while, then add
Make sure there is enough oil after the aubergines are coated in it, cook for another while and and in short succession add
herbes de Provence
freshly ground pepper
more basil, parsley, marjoram and rosmary to taste
1-3 peppers, red and yellow
1/2 kg flour
12.5g fresh (5g dry) yeast
300 ml water, warm
1 spoon oil
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp sugar
Pour half of the water on the volcano shaped flour and add the yeast and then all the other ingredients.
Knead the dough, then add the remaining water and keep on kneading until you have an elastic dough.
Leave the dough to levitate, covered with cloth.
After levitation (it may have grown considerably), knead again (it will deflate, don't worry). Use some flour on the work top to avoid sticking.
Let levitate for 1h (again with cloth).
You're ready: Scoop the desired amount of dough and give it a round shape (pizze).
Oven (pre-heated) 250 C: try to have an even cooking, you don't want the top burnt and the bottom not cooked.

Garlic and Rosemary Cabbage
Fry a few cloves of garlic with rosemary in olive or corn oil. Chop the cabbage in big slices, not using the outer leaves and inner hard heart and put with a little water into a big pot. Close with a lid and leave to steam for 30ish minutes. The flavour is stronger if you fry the cabbage a little at the end.

Quiches "25 Lawmill Gardens" (France)
250 g of flour
100 g of butter or margarine (I usually go for margarine)
A pinch of salt
A few ml of cold water
Mix everything together: I usually mix with my hands but a mixer could be fine as well… at the end of the mixing process the dough should be such that you don't have any more pieces of butter and flour sticking on your hands… otherwise you can add some more flour and mix a little more until everything is incorporated into the dough… However the more or the longer you work the dough and the harder and drier the dough will become once baked… if too dry it will be hard to cut… - Spread some flower on a table, put your dough at the centre, and use a cylindrical piece of wood to flatten the dough - Spread butter around the round dish (around 25cm to 30 cm as a diameter), spread flour at the top of the butter (for the same reason as for the cake) - Roll the dough around the cylindrical piece of wood you've used to flatten the dough and unroll it above the dish. Press the dough at the bottom & the edges to make sure of the connections and to make sure the dough covers the sides high enough as you're going to pour some kind of liquid stuff inside the dish.
5 or 6 eggs
? litre of milk
Crème fraîche or whipping cream
100 - 250g rapped cheese, depending upon your preference (I usually go for about 200 g of the same cheese as the one I use to put in pasta or sandwiches, it is sold at Tesco in a kind of transparent plastic film and looks kind of yellow, is solid and has a kind of rectangular or cubic shape… it does not change much the taste of the Quiche but it does influence strongly its structure, in French it would be “Gruyère rape” but let me know in case you don't picture it and I'll find some other explanations… : )
Pork meat, chopped (Ham or turkey cut in pieces would also work… any way the cheese will also provide the salt so that at first sight you don't need to add some more, but it is up to you and your preferences…)
Herbs & spices such as “oregano, thyme, herbs of Provence” and smashed black pepper…
1 or 2 tomato (for the colour and will provide a less dense quiche… if you want to emphasize the colour then some green vegetable such as brocoli can be slightly cooked)
Herb and Tomato Quiche
250 g of flour
125 g of cold butter
A pinch of salt
Knead all the ingredients into a dough and let rest in the fridge for 15 min. Then put into your tart tin making the sides high so that no juice gets out. Prick with fork.
1 onion, finely chopped
2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
Fry in a little olive oil on low heat. Let cool and mix with:
2-3 tblsp of cream cheese/cream/…
50 ml milk
salt, pepper, nutmeg
a bunch of your favourite herbs (fresh and choppped), such as thyme, oregano, basil, parsley, chives,…
Pour the filling on the dough and add
3-4 tomatoes, sliced thinly
Bake for 40 minutes at 160C, then add
grated cheese (parmesan/Emmentaler/…)**
and bake for another 10 minutes or until the cheese is crispy!
