Hi mazza54walking, glad you're enjoying the show! I'm afraid that recipe is only available in the Save with Jamie book, though.

Re: Ask me a cooking question

Hi Jamie, Please Help!!
I have two boys and they are Autistic.  I love them to pieces every second of the day, but when it comes to meal times, they really do test me.
I am not a great cook and we do not have a lot of money, but I have tried my best to cater for their needs, but I am pretty much down to two meals which they alternate on every other day which is Pizza and Sausage & Toast. 

I feel completely inadequate as a mother because I feel that I am failing miserably with the fight to get them to eat a decent meal and it is extremely worrying thinking they might not be getting the essential nutrients that they need.  I don't know if you are able to help with menu ideas, but I know that there are a lot of other mothers who are in the same position as me, with Autistic children who are pulling their hair out same as me.  So if you could offer any guidance it would be very much appreciated. help

Hi Jamie,

I have used your bread making recipe it was my very first attempt at making my own bread. I had 2 problems the 1st it was a bit too doughy and 2nd it looked as though it had a greyish circle in the middle of the bread.

Regards

Re: Ask me a cooking question

Hi Jamie!

I'm a passionate amateur cook and Jamie fan that first started watching and being inspired by your shows when I lived in the UK around the turn of the millennium. Me and my girlfriend just watched an episode of "Jamie's 15-minute meals" (from 2012) in which you prepared a Koftas Kari, and demonstrated a method for peeling fresh ginger by using a knife and cutting away large portions of the root. This surprised me a little since by doing so you discarded almost half of the root, something that seemed like quite an "un-jameish" thing to do?

I figured I'd share a method for peeling ginger that I learned from my Iranian friends sweet old granny; Instead of a knife she simply used a spoon and scraped off the peel. It's quite as fast but leaves the ginger almost intact with a minimum of waste. An added benefit to this method is that the part just below the peel carries the most flavour, so you make sure to get even more taste from even less ginger.

So, next time you peel ginger, use a spoon smile.

Keep up the good work, and lots of love!

Hi, my daughter has just gone off to university and has bought loads of fruit and frozen it so it doesn't go off. However she doesn't have much knowledge of cooking (despite my endless offers to teach her) and intends to make smoothies which is great. However I had to tell her that her hand blender will not cope with frozen fruit!
Please can you tell me, would any liquidiser cope with frozen fruit or will the blades or motor get ruined? Thanks

Thank you for getting in contact with us. It is great to hear that your daughter is planning on making her own smoothies. I think that most liquidisers will cope with frozen fruit but i would suggest double checking the manufacturer's instruction booklets and websites to double check.

I can't get things crispy when I roast them, like chicken, or potatoes. I think it's because my oven is electric, but even when I use the old, heating up the fat in the oven and then putting the spuds in- trick I can't seem to get them to go crispy. My friends suggested I cheat and do roast spuds in the deep fryer but it's not the healthiest option. Everything I roast ends up looking poached.

hmm

Hello, I am sorry to hear that you are having such troubles with your oven. I would suggest that you get an oven thermometer to test that your oven is running at the right heat. It might also be worth contacting your oven manufacturer to see if they can suggest anything to improve the function of your oven. Thanks

welcome to the forum kiri260180 smile

First of all please dont feel inadequate as a mother as I am sure from what you have written that you are far from that
thumbsup
You have 2 very special sons who have a particular set of needs . I know that all chiildren who are autistic react differently to all manner of things and food  often seems to be an issue
For some its the texture, for others it might be the strength of flavour and for others it might simply be down to the colour of the food .
This might seem strange to some people but to many who have the peivalidge to know these very special children will recognise some of  these issues.

What sort of things do the boys drink ?
Will they drink things like milk or fruit juices ?
How old are the boys ?

Im not going to suggest to you that you put a little vegetable  on top of their pizza's as I am well aware that the extra vegetables
are likely to be removed and the pizza topping put back to how it usually is , or worse , the pizza would be ignored !

Are there any different foods that they will tolorate if , for example ,they go to granny;s house ?

You might gradually be able to introduce a third meal like this . and eventually end up with a rotation of 3 days of different meals.

Now I know what they are eating at the moment is not ideal , but they are eating which can only be a good thing.

I shadowed a boy with similar problems at a school once and for lunch every day he has a peanut butter sandwich on the same type and make of bread , he  had a packet of crisps that he would open carefully in the same manner making sure the bag was almost blown up so that he could slide his hand into the bag without touching the side of the bag ...hes an adult now  a very tall adult and hes doing fine ,  I am sure he will probably still be eating peanut butter sandwiches and crisps at lunch time in the same manner as he has always done.

so try not to worry too much , the boys will 'get there in the end'
