NEW 10/06/2014 from Boys Own, how to make blackout frames


A good home front kitchen needs food that the public either has not seen in a long time, if they have seen the items at all. Jelly when made with gelatine looks totally different as do eggless sponge cakes. Over the last few days I have been indulging in my cookbook, and came up with the following meals;



 A cheese and pickle sandwich albeit you can put in in what ever your local spiv can obtain. Mix 2 tablespoons of milk with a beaten or reconstituted egg, soak your sandwich in it and fry it till golden. These were often sold to fire service and ARP wardens.


Basically a mashed potato patty with cooked lentils in it, mixed with a tablespoon of flour and chopped parsley, finely diced onion and a hint of curry powder. Fry or bake till golden. Seen here being eaten rapidly!


 Hollow out a large onion, peel and boil it till soft. Use the inside to make a stuffing with flour, egg herbs and whatever else you wish to flavour it with. When the onion is soft carefully take it out and when cool stuff it, roast in the oven till golden and serve with gravy. Ideal with the lentil sausage...

Mix gin, lemon juice, sugar and a sprinkle of ice. Add the beaten egg white. Shake well. Strain into cocktail glasses and fill with soda water.  For Sunlight fizz use egg yolk rather than egg white...
