It's February, so how about some home-made marmalade? Seville oranges, a lemon, sugar, water. Full of flavour and not too sweet.

Here's a tasty treat. These are vada (pronounced wah' dah), a South Indian snack and breakfast food. You make the "batter" by soaking then grinding lentils (urad dal) in the blender with just enough water to almost let the blender work. Stop and scrape down the blender frequently. Add salt, chilies, onion, a little baking soda (for cheaters like me), and deep fry. I could eat these all day, served with a nice green coconut chutney.

BTW, I had these for the first time last year in Bangalore, couldn't stop thinking about them, finally made some last week.

I love love love vada. Here, we get them with sambar, sort of crispy substitutes for idli.

Gravlax, as snack and also brekkie.

(H, it's even Kashrut, boy => Super book : Encyclopedia of Jewish food, Gil Marks, September 2K10, ISBN 9780470391303)

Salt, sugar, juniper berries, dille, a little extra, and a week in the fridge.
Chopping up a part within 3 days brinning makes a grand salmon tartare.
All that for $6/lb.

One of these days i'll bury one at the beach for tradition's sake.

You're supposed to put the juniper berries in your gin. (Gin=the great invention of the Dutchies).

Gravlax, Mmm...

Jacco, the lasagna rack, I've not seen that before. What's it called and where do you get it? Google was no help.

Amazon.com: Aeternum Lasagne Pasta Noodle Pot Insert Cooker: Kitchen & Dining

Any decent kitchen utensil store should have it, overhere it's just called a lasagna sheet cooker.

Oldy trick from before the utensil era to cook lasagna sheets is with a (plastic) toast rack.

Default Sill Dill...

Just had a kangaroo steak on the barbie, and the herrings I caught yesterday are in a pickling solution - should be ready in a few days.

Just like these...

Don't have a picture but my daughter made Woopie pies from scratch last night. Sorry traditionalists, butter and more butter. Chocolate cake made with Callebaut and hand made Italian meringue.
