Recipe, Madhur Jaffrey's Cranberry Chutney
1-inch piece fresh ginger
3 cloves finely chopped garlic
1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
4 tablespoons sugar
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
1-pound can cranberry sauce with berries
1/2 teaspoon salt (or less)
ground black pepper

Cut ginger into paper-thin slices, stack them together and cut into really thin slivers. Combine ginger, garlic, vinegar, sugar and cayenne in a small pot, and simmer on medium flame about 15 minutes or until there are about four tablespoons of liquid left. Add can of cranberry sauce, salt and pepper. Mix and bring to a simmer. Simmer on a gentle heat for about 10 minutes. Cool, store and refrigerate.

Makes about 1 1/2 cups.

Mama Stamberg's Cranberry Relish

2 cups whole raw cranberries, washed
1 small onion
3/4 cup sour cream
1/2 cup sugar
2 tablespoons horseradish from a jar ("red is a bit milder than white&quotirisblue's Journal - Democratic Underground Forums (1)
Grind the raw berries and onion together.
Add everything else and mix.
Put in a plastic container and freeze.

Early Thanksgiving morning, move it from freezer to refrigerator compartment to thaw. (It should still have some little icy slivers left.)

The relish will be thick, creamy, and shocking pink. (OK, Pepto Bismol pink, according to some mis-guided listeners.) It has a tangy taste that cuts through and perks up the turkey and gravy. Its also good on next-day turkey sandwiches, and with roast beef.

I have never had a scone I liked, maybe the US Midwest bakers do/use different ingredients .

Today's doodle is an image of 2 scones (go look I'll wait)

If I were to find an authentic Scottish scone, I'd go. Cornwall style, jam first then the clotted cream. The image on the doodle right makes more sense to me.

snip-"In Cornwall this is heavily disputed. They say the jam must go on first, the better to protect the cream from the warm scone, which would otherwise simply melt the cream. They have a point, but I’ve always taken my cream tea the Cornish way, undoubtedly due to many summers spent in Cornwall as a child where I consumed endless amounts of cream tea."

snip-"The Queen recently attempted to settle this ongoing debate when she revealed she eats her cream tea the Cornish way, jam first. But even an intervention from the Queen herself couldn’t put an end to the argument, and both sides still claim theirs is the right way."

more there.

Then the reddit forum Casual UK realized that Google was trying to start a civil war.

After reading this, I made a pot of Yorkshire Gold Tea, and put Juniors of NY CheeseCake on next week's grocery list. If Google puts a doodle up of the types of cheesecake, well given how touchy & tichy things here in the US are at the minute, itl be an issue.

I'm going to take my cuppa outdoors and enjoy the improved weather.
Cheers Mates
