I like it for trifle, it soaks up the alcohol well.

Re: Dave Barkers Christmas Kitchen...

I do not eat dessert other than a piece of fruit or a slice of cheese (no carbs) occasionally.  I prefer my alcohol, if I'm drinking, to be unadulterated by empty calories/kilojoules. Still, that's me. Each to their own.

Re: Dave Barkers Christmas Kitchen...

I don't know if this traditional everywhere, but most of the italians around here that make it from scratch use the large metal coffee tins to bake panettone in. I think we have one kicking around in a closet somewhere right now waiting to make panettone.

Re: Dave Barkers Christmas Kitchen...

Ashen, I helped myself to a large coffee tin about 30 years ago (well, it was going to be binned) from the hospital where I worked. Sadly, they no longer seem to exist. Was perfect for making panettone even though I don't eat it wink. Darned if I can find a substitute. The large brioche mould sort of does the job (but I always have excess mixturey. Must Google when the madness settles. Say, February-have to survive Australia Day yet-a nightmare living in the inner city.

Re: Dave Barkers Christmas Kitchen...

Had a few slices of the panettone I made toasted for breakfast this morning.  Panettone should not be too sweet.  This had a very small amount of sugar in it.
Most of the sweetness came from raisins and candied chestnuts.  I baked mine in a paper mold.  Tried the coffee can method years ago and it was disasterous!
I think a good baking or cooking shop like Williams and Sonoma or Sur La Table would have paper baking molds for panettone or you can order them online.

4 tsp of salt to a kg of yogurt. Stir. Put into a cloth & suspend from a peice of dowel or a wooden spoon with string over a deep bowl or bucket in fridge for 3 days.

Roll what remains in the cloth into balls & roll through a mix of dried oregano & thyme. Put into jars with a couple of bayleaves, top with oil & refridgerate for up to 2 monthes.

We eat it spread on bread or in any way that a creamy fetta (not crumbly) would be used.

Really good on sourdough or light rye topped with sliced fresh tomato.

Re: Dave Barkers Christmas Kitchen...

Being bone lazy, I bought a "wave" from King Arthur Flours. It's a lidded platic container and has a metal sieve inside. Takes 500g gm of yoghurt which is fine for me. Goes in the fridge and saves the space and possible mess of the cloth over the bowl method.

Sounds good Frizz (long time no see wave). Am off to the supermarket and will buy some Greek-style yogurt while I'm there. The hoards are invading me tomorrow arvo.
