In return, and right now, we’ll share two more tried and trusted recipes from the original 1930’s Aunt Daisy’s Radio Cookery Book that will make your $6.25 donation much easier to digest…………..
#1 ANZAC Biscuits**
First, choose your favorite radio station to keep you company! Then, melt the butter with the Golden Syrup. Add the baking soda which has been dissolved in 2 tablespoons of boiling water. Add all the other ingredients. Take small teaspoons of the mixture and roll into small balls. Place these on a cold oven sheet, leaving space for them to expand. Cook for 30 minutes in a slow oven. Enjoy!
#2 Prune Whip
You’ll need: hot prune juice [3/4 cup], cooled prune pulp [1/2 cup], gelatine [1 tablespoon], egg whites , cold water [1/4 cup], lemon juice [2 tablespoons], sugar [1/2 cup], chopped nuts [1/4 cup].
First, keep listening to your favorite radio station. Then, pour the cold water onto the gelatine, sugar and a pinch of salt, add the hot prune juice and stir until it’s dissolved. Then, add the prune pulp, the lemon juice and the chopped nuts and leave aside to cool. When the mixture starts to thicken, stiffly beat the egg whites and add them, stir them in put into a wetted mould or dish and set aside to cool. When set firm, turn out the prune whip and served with fresh or whipped cream. Enjoy!
