Calfornia Roll Sushi

Everyone loves this kind of sushi roll.  The avocado is what makes this recipe special. You will love its smooth, buttery taste. Make sure you choose one that is perfectly ripe. The skin should be slightly soft when you poke. Avocados spoil fast so make sure to use them right away.
Camping Granola

Camping Granola

Granola is a breakfast food and snack food consisting of rolled oats, nuts, and honey that is usually baked until crispy. During the baking process the mixture is stirred to maintain a loose, breakfast cereal-type consistency. Dried fruits, such as raisins and dates, are sometimes added.

Besides serving as food for breakfast and/or snacks, granola is also often eaten by those who are hiking, camping, or backpacking due to the fact that it is lightweight, high in calories, and easy to store.

Granola is often eaten in combination with yogurt, honey, strawberries, bananas, milk, and/or other forms of cereal. It can also serve as a topping for various types of pastries and/or desserts. Granola, particularly recipes that include flax or linn seeds, is often used to improve digestion.

Coconut Jam Tartlets

Hertzoggies are very traditional 'Afrikaanse tertjies'.  A shortcrust pasty filled with apricot jam topped with coconut meringue.  Great to fill the cookie tins for holiday season!  Just don't expect them to last too long.  Normally my short crust pastry is too much for the topping so I added a second topping for left over crust. (see 'Accompanying Recipes'). They also make perfect gifts or could be packaged and sold from your home industry (tuisnywerheid).
