I hate to be the dissenter but those things look like something out of "Alien"!

I was physically repulsed by cabbage for life; courtesy of my primary school. I can smell it even now...........

:yuck:

Tragic :( Your school has a lot to answer for.

On the bright side, your loss is our gain :)

Gorgeous things!

...good rice pudding deserves a thread on it's own! I like it french style - cold and sliced with a caramel crust!
Spanish-style arroz con leche. Cold with cinnamon and a touch of orange peel.

That's so, so sad.

Speaking of rice pudding, anyone remember macaroni as a milk pudding - yummity-yum-yum-yum! I made a pack of instant noods up with milk & sugar one morning at camp when I'd run out of porridge and the taste took me straight back to macaroni pudding at school.

Cous cous works well too given the same treatment.

There's also tapioca and Sago. If we had been ill we got Arrowroot pudding YUM!

But on the cabbage front Bubble and squeak or Rumbledethumps/Kailkenny (with kail)



Ingredients:
1 pound boiled and mashed potatoes
1 pound boiled cabbage/kail, drained
1 ounce butter (or margarine)/cream if Scottish.
Salt and black pepper

Method:
Mash the potatoes and finely chop the cabbage and mix in a large saucepan in which the butter has been melted. Keep the saucepan over a low heat to keep it hot. Season to taste and serve piping hot.

The mixture can also be put into a greased oven-proof dish and cooked at 400F/200C/gas mark 6 until the top is browned.

Bubble and squeak really benefits from frying in a little beef dripping IMHO

'Potch' is nice too, swede and spud mashed together and heavy on the butter.

I think the essence of my problem is the way they cooked (or rather destroyed) the above delicacies.

I eat rice for example, as risotto or the grain with other foods, but I had an unfortunate regurgative experience with the awful lettuce they inflicted on us. I have tried it many times since but just don't like the texture or the taste.
