Start with Hungarian Roast Pork:
Get a 800g - 1kg piece of pork and score the skin with a sharp knife. Then rub in ground fennel seeds, caraway seeds, hot paprika, sea salt & black pepper. Set aside for 1 hr to marinate.
Then cook on then BBQ for about 2 hrs - will need to cover the crackling with tinfoil about 1hr in or it will burn.
Test to see if it is cooked if so, take off the heat to sit for 5-10mins. Then carve and eat.
Serve with roast veggies and gravy.
Deep Dish Apple Pie - my variation
Cut up 6 apples & stew for about 5 minutes until soft (mine went a little like goo - woops! Put aside in a bowl to cool.
Cut up 2 pears and add to cooling apples along with a handful of sultanas. Mix in 1/4 cup sugar, 1 tspn lemon rind and 1/4 tspn of cinnamon. Leave to cool completely.
Meanwhile for your dough:
1 cup plain flour
1/2 cup self-raising flour
1/4 cup cornflour
1/4 cup custard powder
1 tablespoon caster cugar
1 egg separated
100g cold butter, chopped
1/3 cup cold water
extra caster sugar
1. Sift dry ingredients into a large bowl and rub in butter until it resembles bread crumbs. Add egg yolk and enough water to make ingredients cling together (do this slowly to see). Press dough into a ball, knead on floured surface until smooth; refrigerate 30 minutes.
2. Preheat oven to hot. Divide dough into 2 portions. Roll one portion between sheets of baking paper (with a little flour to stop sticking) until large enough to line base of baking tray or dish.
3. I then blind baked this in the oven for about 7 minutes, brushed egg white over the dough then baked for another 2 minutes. Spoon filling into pastry case and brush edge with egg white.
4. Roll remaining pastry until large enough to cover filling. Press edges together and trim edge. Brush pastry with egg white and sprinkle top with extra sugar. Decorate with pastry scraps if you wish. Bake in hot oven 20minuntes; reduce heat to moderate and bake for 25 minutes or until pastry is browned.
Serve with cream or icecream - YUM!
