I think samples of recipes should be posted to all mods for judging. :wub:
And write your name and address on a ten pound note, the pay here is appalling. :lol:

Third attempt. I think the five a day refer to vegtebubbles and not fruit which generally require sugar to sweeeten them.  I do remember that you are type 1 and not like me type 2. I have got my diet down that I now do nothing b ut follow it. I can eat five grapes now!

I love fruit and veg. If I was any good in the kitchen, I'd post up a recipe but sadly I'd have no idea where to start.
I'll get OH's help when it comes to voting. :)  (with or without a tenner ???)

Does my banana bread recipe count?  I'm fairly confident it is a fruit.  8)

I'm very important. I have many leather-bound books and my apartment smells of rich mahogany.

A recipe I inherited from my nan, and one of the kids favourite:

Apple Snow

Stew some cooking apples, sweeten to taste. Place in oven proof dish.
Make up some meringue (for our family of four, I use 2 eggs and 4oz caster sugar) and place on top of the apple. Cook for 30-40 mins, until the meringue is a light golden colour, crispy on the outside, and gooey in the middle!

Heres one I made yesterday in my shiny new Kenwood
Banana Bread

10 oz plain flour
1 tsp bicarb
1/4 tsp salt
4 oz butter
8oz golden caster sugar
2 free range eggs
1 large or two small VERY ripe bananas
4 fl oz buttermilk or milk with a dash of lemon juice
1 tsp good quality vanilla extract

Sift flour, bicarb and salt into a bowl.  Cream the butter and sugar together.  Add eggs, buttermilk, mashed bananas and vanilla extract.  Mix together and fold in flour.  Use a small greased loaf tin and bake for 40 minutes on gas 4.  It often needs another 5 to 10 minutes extra.  Test by putting a skewer in.  if it comes out clean the bread is done.

It is a very good recipe and it's unfortunate that I can't eat much of it myself.

Samples have been pm'd to everyone. ::)

Wonder if it would also work with a pre baked squash hollowed out.

Have consulted the guru and she says butternut squash as per the recipe. It bakes in its own time apparently. The melon works well because it's very sweet and very juicy which soaks into the couscous. Poss a separate sauce would improve it.

Them Persians know how to stuff. :)
