Preserved Lemons (or Limes)

The simplest recipe of all – just pickled in their own juice and salt. I keep an eye out for bags of the small, round, thin-skinned ones you sometimes see in Leeds Market around February or March; they are slightly sweeter than the normal ones you get – and silly cheap! (more…)

Potato Pizza

I came across this recipe; thought it sounded … odd. Couldn’t work, could it?

Two soul foods in one? That soft flavoursome combination of potato and onion from a hot pot … on a pizza, with potatoes crisped on top? And it does indeed work, superbly well. As a light lunch or supper, served hot or warm, with just a simple salad to accompany.

A brief aside – any president or politician seeking to improve their ratings would do well to follow the President of Iceland. 97% approval? No surprise, given his common-sense opposition to pineapple on pizza. A wise man.
