White Christmas Fudge

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2011
Sounds like the author meant to write something similar to a "twice cooked" or "no fail" DIVINITY recipe.  Not that the recipe title is necessarily inaccurate; long ago divinity was commonly called "divinity fudge." The amount of water sounds waaay too little (I would guess an amount closer to 1 1/2 cups) and the instructions certainly neglect to mention that the syrup is added to egg whites that have been BEATEN to STIFF PEAKS (as in any recipe for divinity). So if you would like to achieve something like this recipe's intended result--theoretically, at least--a nougaty white concoction studded with pecans (yum)--I would suggest searching for a twice cooked or no fail divinity recipe.

Damson Plum Cardamom Jam

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2010
I believe the plums I used were Italian prune plums, which I understand are much sweeter than sour Damsons, but I used all the same proportions of ingredients called for in the recipe. Still very good jam, especially with the cardamom! After the plums were cooked I ran them through a food mill. After I added the butter and sugar to the mixture I only cooked the jam about an hour more (low simmer). My yield was about 9 half pints. I also processed them in a boiling water canner for 10 minutes (I live at high altitude-- about 4600 feet) Thanks for the recipe!

Honey Graham Crackers

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2010
Good, wholesome recipe! I used butter instead of margarine and added 1/2 tsp of salt. We made them into cookie cutter shapes. I did NOT chill the dough and it was easy to work with (I used powdered sugar to roll them out in). They kept their shape very well; the best thickness for these seemed to about 1/8"; baked in about 8 minutes. Nice for the kids to make since they don't contain eggs!

Oven-Fried Potatoes

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2010
This is an easy, flavorful recipe, and looks really appetizing, too. I made a third the recipe, used 6 small red potatoes and used a little less oil (~1 tbsp) and added it to the bag with the spices and potatoes. I also sprayed the pan with cooking spray. It took 50 minutes for the 3/4 inch potato cubes. Definitely a keeper, thanks!
