Swedish Ginger & Lemon Toffee











Hello honeyz! It’s Sunday night at the lazy mansion and I want to tell you about last week’s treat for the knitting club (yes, I am 80 years old and need to start wearing a diaper). I had two friends over for a knitting session and made some toffee from a Swedish recipe book called “Julgodis” (~Christmas candy, a book by Johanna Westman about whom I know absolutely nothing, but seeing as you have a computer too you can do me the honour of googling her yourself, lazykins). It contains a lot of very accessible recipes for hard caramel, soft toffee and all sorts of chocolates. Very tempting stuff. Here’s a combination of two recipes of hers, or rather one roughly translated lemon toffee recipe with a bit of ginger. It’s dead easy. Hell, I think you can have it done by the time a new X-Factor contestant is voted off the island. And then you get to sit there and gloat while enjoying the lemony-gingery butterness of the softest toffee you’ve ever had.

Sweet Pickled Red Onions

There’s just nothing like sharing a great roast with the whole family. But let’s be honest, the roast alone won’t do. Without the right condiments, eating meat can end up being a very bland experience: Brown, grey and red-ish grey. So try this out as a little splash of colour on the plate. And when these babies are done, you will have replaced the pungent onionyness with a sweet pink flavour and colour. They go perfectly with lamb, poultry, game, roasts in general and can easily sex up a sandwich of left-overs. Have you tried piling up the cutlets from yesterday’s roast on an Italian bread roll along with some chilimayo, tomatoes, pickled red onions, fresh cilantro etc? Well now’s your chance.
