Baked Beans

Hi Gerry, I use a similar recipe that I "created", but with no bacon, as the bacon here in Brazil is more fat (to which I am allergic) than meat! And the title of the beans here is simply "White Beans", of what type I have no idea! In my version, I use Tomato Ketchup and "pulp" in place of extract, and due to the ridiculous cost and difficult availabilty, no molasses / black treacle, just sugar! Yesterday, I finished preparing a batch starting with 500 grams of white beans, and finally froze the resulting 2 kg of Baked Beans in 8 small plastic containers!
I'm going to see what happens if I create the text in Wordpad, then copy it into the Message page: I hope that it works!!!

Cobbler

Hi Sam, I will DEFINITELY give that a try soon! It would be even better if I could buy lamb, to make an Irish Stew with the Cobbler topping, but is almost impossible to buy in Brazil! Even Pork is not very common!
Many thanks for the recipe!!!

Beef Suet

Hi Paul, I have asked at many butchers here, and they simply will not supply the required fat!I will continue researching (and trying Sams Cobbler recipe).
As a long time fan of Delia, this is ALWAYS the first place that I look! Actually, I am about to try and order a new copy of Delias Complete Cookery Course Classic Edition from Amazon UK, as mine is worn out!

Strange Characters

Hi Gerry,
Using Wordpad did not help: it seems that the site does not like abbreviations!I will avoid using them from now on!!!

no characters

Hi Mike,
Copying and pasting this in from Notepad. Can't remember what I was going to say.

Beef Suet

Hi Gerry, I am looking forward to your reply, when you remember what is was!But, because of the 4 hour time difference, I won't see your post util tomorrow,at the earliest, assuming that my slow, 3G connection is working!
The problem of the weird characters is just the abbreviation: it obviously doesn't like that particular ASCII code. Such is life.
I am going back to preparing Delias Parsley Sauce, which is cooking now! Superb, and reliable!!!

i love how chats on thread evolve....now mike is making parsley sauce.....

delias is a lovely isn't it.

shame lamb is also hard to come by in brazil.

how long have you been there? what part are you - i may have missed your whereabouts in an earlier thread.

how are you finding the heat? the people? the language?

I think its so amazing when people up sticks and move - and your move is a proper proper move.

mike, beans

Generally the ones sold dried as "haricot beans" are the ones I use. Molasses sugar is dark, if the syrup isn't available. Yes, this site doesn't like ASCI code. I go for tomato paste instead of ketchup. Some of us always fry the t. paste for a few minutes, never adding it to hot liquid; it takes the "raw" taste of it away.

Reply to SAM

Hi Sam,
the parsley sauce was GREAT, as always!
I have been here since Nov 2005: I have no problem with the people or the heat! The language (Portuguese) is still driving me crazy though, but I manage to survive! Before making the decision, I had already had 5 long Xmas vacations in Rio de Janeiro, so it was not a hard decision to take early retirement and voluntary redundancy!!! I'm living in a delighful small city on the coast, about 95 mile east of Rio.

Hi Gerry,
"Haricot" beans just don't exist here. They are just white beans (Feij√£o Branco)!
As it happens, a friend of mine is going to get me some Molasses (which is rare and expensive here) in the next few days.
Heinz have just started importing Tomato Paste into Brazil, which I will try with the next batch of Baked Beans, along with the promised Molasses! It may be a while though, as I still have 1.5 kg of Baked Beans to consume first! The normal Tomato Extract here is, in all honesty, RUBBISH! I have high hopes for the Heinz. There are bonuses to moving here though, apart from the weather and beaches: new vegetables (e.g. Chu Chu = Chayote) and fruits to experiment with.

Thanks for your little insight into your life in brazil, I am sure we still have a glut of ex pate brazilians on here. I seem to remember one lady who made a load of "proper fish and chips" for some kind of do she was doing for a load of ex pats.

And then there is the great sage MrPastry.

Do keep us posted with your culinary experiences.

and don't forget to add some recipes when you create something too.

is palm sugar any good for recipes? I know you have that in abundance out there.

you need to get friendly with a local chef lol.
