Q&A's? We are here to help. We being Delia and Lindsey. We work closely together and can answer any queries you have relating to Delia's recipes and our online Cookery School. Why not ask a question right now? What we can't do though, is answer questions about other recipes. (For general website queries or technical questions please click here)
I simply love Delias Christmas Chutney and have made it several times. However, i would like to replace the Whole Allspice berries for Ground Allspice. Can you please tell me how much Ground Spice i should use. (The recipe calls for 3ozs of Whole Berries).
I have got 4kg of bitter oranges left after using 1kg on marmalade. I may well make a 2nd batch of marmalade but to use it all on marmalade, well I think it is too much. What other uses do you know for these flavour-full but bitter fruits?
Having made meringues for 40 years I thought the hazelnut apricot meringue recipe looked easy. It was a disaster. Meringues stuck in greased tin and onto paper. They barely rose.
Peeling off the paper led to a pile of soggy meringue crumbs which I was just about able to glue together with the apricot purée and the whipped cream to give dinner guests some sort of pudding.
