At Pulau School there are just eight children that come from only two families. They are spread in ages from 5 – 13 years. This term I (Ruth) have been bringing the eight of them up to our house to cook once a week. Each child has formed a recipe book from a school exercise book and divided it into sections. We are aiming to make something from every section. Last week we made Lemon Honey which is like a creamy lemon jam to put on bread. It was delicious. Today we made a Chow Mein with minced beef. By the end of each lesson my kitchen is sticky and the floor needs a wash. But we are all having a good time and the children are learning valuable skills.
Making jars of Lemon Honey
2 Tbsp butter
1 Cup sugar
2 beaten eggs
2 lemons (grated rind and juice)
Melt the butter and sugar.
Add eggs and lemons.
Use a microwave or double boiler to cook this.
Boil until thick. If cooking in the microwave put it in for 10 minutes
then remove and stir and then microwave for a further 10 minutes for a
thick lemon honey.
Store it in the fridge. This can be made in bulk and frozen until you
are ready to use it.
