Marshmallow Roll

This is another recipe that was given to me by Mrs Edwards. It is just so yummy and so very easy to make. I always have it as part of my christmas goodies that I make each year. Every year I pick out my favourite decadent recipes suitable to put on a platter to hand out at christmas time. This not only tastes wonderful but it has beautiful colours through it that add to the lovely look of this recipe.


250 grams butter - softened
1/2 tin Nestles condensed milk
1 pkt crushed sweet biscuits ( I always use Milk Arrowroot)
1 pkt white and pink marshmallows - cut into fours
1 teaspoon marsala (wine)
dessicated coconut

Cream the butter then add the condensed milk and marsala. Mix in the crushed biscuits and marshmallows. Turn out onto clean surface and form into a roll and coat all over with coconut, pressing to it firmly. Set in the refrigerator until set and firm. Cut into thin slices and serve with tea or coffee as a special afternoon or evening treat.

Green Tomato Pickle

This was another recipe that I found in my mum's handwriten recipe book. I know that she gave it to me probably about 30 years ago and I used to make it every year from the abundant tomatoes that we grew every season. It is very addictive to lovers of pickles and I know you will enjoy this as much as I always have.


1.5 kilos of green tomatoes
3 large brown onions
1 kilo sugar
1 cup flour
1 tablespoon tumeric
1 teaspoon curry powder
3 tablespoons mustard powder
pinch cayene pepper
1 litre spiced vinegar
1/2 cup cooking salt
3 litres water

Slice tomatoes and onions and sprinkle with salt, pour water over and let stand over night. Put in a large stock pot and heat enought to scald then strain off the water. Put vinegar and sugar in a pan, then the vegetables. Mix flour and other ingredients to a smooth paste with a little vinegar and water, then add to vegetables and simmer for approx 15 minutes. Bottle, label and store in cool pantry. Pickles will keep very well if well sealed.
