    Hot Mulled Cider Recipe
    INGREDIENTS
    1/2 gallon of fresh, unfiltered apple cider
    1 orange
    15 cloves
    4 3-inch sticks of cinnamon
    15 allspice berries
    1 teaspoon of nutmeg
    7 pods of cardamon
    1/4 cup brown sugar
    METHOD
    1 Pour apple cider into a 3-quart saucepan, cover, turn the heat on medium-high. While cider is heating up, take a vegetable peeler and peel away a couple thick strips of peel from the orange. Press about half of the cloves into the peeled part of the orange. (You can also just quarter the orange and add the slices and cloves separately. I just like seeing the orange bob up and down.) Place orange, orange peel strips, the remaining cloves, and the rest of the ingredients into the sauce pan with the cider. Keep covered and heat the mulled cider mixture to a simmer and reduce heat to low. Simmer for 20 minutes on low heat.
    2 Use a fine mesh sieve to strain the hot mulled cider away from the orange, cloves, and other spices. If you want, you can add a touch of bourbon, brandy, or rum to spike it up a bit. Serve hot. Add a cinnamon stick to each cup if desired.
    Makes 8 cups.

    ELEPHANT STEW:

    1 ELEPHANT
    2 RABBITS, OPTIONAL
    SALT AND PEPPER

    CUT THE ELEPHANT INTO BITE SIZED PIECES. THIS WILL TAKE ABOUT 2 MONTHS. ADD ENOUGH BROWN GRAVY TO COVER. COOK OVER AN OPEN FIRE FOR ABOUT 4 WEEKS AT ABOUT 465 DEGREES. THIS WILL SERVE ABOUT 3,800 PEOPLE. IF MORE ARE EXPECTED, 2 RABBITS MAY BE ADDED, BUT DO THIS ONLY IF AN EMERGENCY, AS SOME PEOPLE DO NOT LIKE TO FIND A HARE IN THEIR STEW!

    we added carrots and a can of tomatoes to it!

    Rustic Cabbage Soup Recipe Chances are I'm not making my own stock on the average weeknight. I am a big fan of Rapunzel Herb Bouillon (available at many stores), I use about 1/2 of one cube in a soup like this to kick things off - it makes a nice, light but flavorful broth. I'll crush it into a powder and add it to the pot just before I add water. I had some Rancho Gordo flageolet (any kind of white beans) beans already cooked so I used them here, but no worries if you have to turn to the can. For the vegans out there, just skip the Parmesan, and you're in business.


    1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
    a big pinch of salt
    1/2 pound potatoes, skin on, cut 1/4-inch pieces
    4 cloves garlic, chopped
    1/2 large yellow onion, thinly sliced
    5 cups stock (see head notes)
    1 1/2 cups white beans, precooked or canned (drained & rinsed well)
    1/2 medium cabbage, cored and sliced into 1/4-inch ribbons
    more good-quality extra-virgin olive oil for drizzling
    1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, freshly grated
    Warm the olive oil in a large thick-bottomed pot over medium-high heat. Stir in the salt and potatoes. Cover and cook until they are a bit tender and starting to brown a bit, about 5 minutes - it's o.k. to uncover to stir a couple times. Stir in the garlic and onion and cook for another minute or two. Add the stock and the beans and bring the pot to a simmer. Stir in the cabbage and cook for a couple more minutes, until the cabbage softens up a bit. Now adjust the seasoning - getting the seasoning right is important or your soup will taste flat and uninteresting. Taste and add more salt if needed, the amount of salt you will need to add will depend on how salty your stock is (varying widely between brands, homemade, etc)...
    Serve drizzled with a bit of olive oil and a generous dusting of cheese.
    Serves 4.

    hope it sounds good to you!

    1lb SR Flour, (If you don't have Self Raising flour, follow THIS LINK for a DIY alternative.)
    6 oz Margarine,
    12 oz Mixed fruit,
    A pinch of salt,
    ½ Teaspoon Cream of tartar,

    3. Add margarine and rub into the flour,
    4. Add treacle and mix in,
    5. Then add sugar and fruit,
    6. Add beaten egg and butter milk and mix to soft consistency (too soft to handle and too thick to pour),
    7. Put in a greased and lightly flour 12" x 9" (approx) baking tin,
    8. Bake for 1½ to 2 hours at 350 F or until brown and firm to touch.

    REESTIT MUTTON SOUP

    Place mutton (2lb) in cold water. Bring to the boil and continue boiling for almost two hours or until tender. Remove meat from pan. The water will be very salty, so remove some and reserve. Skim off the fat, add more water to your own taste, then add chopped potatoes, carrots, turnip and onion in the quantities you would like. Boil until the vegetables are tender. Mash them into smaller pieces if required, and for the last two or three minutes add some chopped up reestit mutton. Serve with buttered bread.
