School Cooking Lessons

Cooking Lessons
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

Lemon Honey

Ingredients
2 Tbsp butter
1 Cup sugar
2 beaten eggs
2 lemons (grated rind and juice)

Method
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.

    1. Ellen did you send us a Christmas card design pack from Saffron Designs? We received a pack with an "Ellen" as sender.
