Arbutus (Irish Strawberry) Jam

Eaten uncooked, a ripe arbutus fruit tastes somewhat pasty, but they make great jam.

Camp-oven Cook-off recipes

The winning recipes, Sri Lankan pepper beef curry, Three picket roast roo and Southern Gumbo.

Spiced Chicken & Mango Salad

Serves two. Chicken breast with a Chinese five spice lift, mango and macadamia nuts with pea shoots or watercress.

Fish Tacos with Fresh Mango Salsa

Serves four. Marinated fish fillets with a mango salsa makes this special (and quick) tortilla filling.

Grilled Mango with Caramelised Brioche

Serves two. Great way to use left over pannettone, or buy some brioche just for the pleasure of it.

Apricot and Lemon Jam

Looks like it’s making Jam time to me. This recipe was originally for dried apricots, but works great with fresh ones.

La Rocciata di Assisi

A traditional Christmas sweet from Umbria in the heart of Italy.

Panforte - Siena cake

Matthew Evans’ recipe for panforte differs from most others with the addition of some Golden Syrup, but I reckon that’s an important part of the taste of this version of a year round favourite.

Bizcochitos - Christmas tradition from New Mexico

This biscuit was made the official New Mexico state cookie in 1989, then the legislature debated on how to spell the name. Picking one recipe is just as difficult.

Classic Strawberry Pavlova

My aunt Elsie was always the ‘gold standard’ for pavlovas at our family get-togethers, crisp outside and soft, fluffy and just chewy centres. I’ve never replicated them.

Sautéed Brussels Sprouts with Pancetta

If you’re a brussels sprout lover this is a really satisfying dish, entree or main.

Chilli Lamb in Red Wine

This was the winning entry in the Roadkill Stew section at the Camp Oven Cook-off. Works on a stove top too.
