When I did the food shopping on Monday I saw this luscious little pot of Spring daffs in Morrisons for just 66p. I couldn't resist them for that price. Similar ones are on sale in Poundland so these were a steal. So loverly.... :)
Now on a different subject entirely, I love mashed swede but hate preparing the things as cutting them into chunks ready to cook hurts my hands. Has anyone heard of the Singing Neep? I don't know how to post a link but if you Google Singing Neep on U-Toob there is a video explaining how to do it. I just wiped the swede clean (no piercing required either) placed it onto a plate in the microwave and zapped it for about 20 minutes, turning it over half way through. I was sure it would explode but..no...it cooked it perfectly. After a little rest (the neep, not me...lol) I just cut it open and scooped out the flesh....
.....which was then gently mashed a little more in a bowl with a fork...perfect mashed swede.
Apparently, the name comes from the sound the swede makes when it's cooking. I can't believe I have had to wait until my 65th year to find this super little trick.
Has anyone else tried this? Any more tips I have missed during my lifetime of cooking?
Thanks so much for popping in x
