Memories of Rissoles

Today's recipe brings back happy memories. Mondays dinner was often rissoles made with the leftover joint from Sunday . Mum made them much like Delia's recipe , she had an old style mincer that screwed to the work top and I always looked forward to them unlike my kids who didn't take to them. Maybe it was the name of them that put them off. We don't eat joints of meat any more so I never get to eat them but if I had a chance to make them I would.
Do you have any memories of past foods good or bad?

MEMORIES

When I was a child my mother used to make soup, it contained all the usual veg, plus pearl barley, lentils and split peas and was cooked in an earthenware casserole in a slow oven for many hours. It also contained marrow bones. I used to love this soup and some years ago decided to make some. To my horror the marrow bones produced a thicl layer of fat and the soup ended up in the bin. Obviously nobody even thought about animal fats then!

Remembered soup

What a waste. The trick is to cook the soup one day. Let it go cold and then just lift the layer of fat off the cold soup and throw it away.

I certainly wouldn't throw good soup away!
