This weekend we went for our annual pilgrimage to this show. As usual it was great to see a huge range of vehicles, classic cars, bicycles, motorbikes, military, Rv’s, campervans, a spitfire, emergency vehicles and more. I always enjoy coming across an old car that I or my parents have owned in the past. A Ford Cortina, Granada, Fiat 128, VW Golf GTI etc.
We went on the Sunday and they had the usual helicopter sightseeing tours and a motorbike display team in the Arena.
Plenty of retro stalls selling vintage car parts, furniture from the last 50 years and more. Great weather, some great food stalls and a funfair. Looking forward to the 2018 show.
Removed the frozen bowl from the freezer and put the white frozen mixture into the centre leaving a small well in the centre into which the Raspberry mixture went. Froze the whole lot again and pulled out of the freezer a couple of hours later and this is what it looked like.
You are supposed to use warm water on the sides of the bowl to release the pudding from the bowl but this was not quite as easy as the recipe leads you to believe. However we both tasted some and it was o.k. Not sure if I would do this again though. The final result looked like a watermelon.
Another hour or so and I thought I might have problems. The recipe requires a 1.2 litre pudding bowl. Looked in my cupboards and managed to find one, just the right size.
Smoothed the green iced mixture over the sides of the pudding bowl and refreeze again.
Another hour or so in the freezer and again you need to break up the ice crystals so it resembles a slushy paste. One more time in the freezer and it should be a paste consistency ready for spreading…
Its been in the freezer for an hour now. Pulled out the two containers and they were indeed part frozen, so I just used a fork to break up the large ice crystals turning the mixture into a kind of slush and then popped back in the freezer for another hour to repeat the process.
This recipe looked interesting but not sure what it’s
going to taste like?
I froze three bananas overnight in the freezer, cut them up this morning and blended with 450g greek style yoghurt and 400g custard.
I was using a small blender so had to do it in two batches as the ingredients wouldn’t all fit into one go. Now I take a third of the mixture and add green food colouring.
Then both mixtures go into small containers for freezing for about an hour again.
Got to wait for an hour now…
The sun is finally setting over the beach we are enjoying our evening meal at Bar Jamaica surrounded by cocktails with 3 foot straws sticking out of them, reggae playing in the background and busy staff with dreadlocks whizzing by as we chill.
