Only Calypso
makes it Perfect
With less seed and more firm, deliciously
sweet mango, Calypso is the perfect
choice for a Brle thats really easy to
make but really hard to share!

BRLE CALYPSO MANGO


WITH PASSIONFRUIT CREAM
Serves: 4
Prep Time: 15 mins
Cooking Time: 10 mins
Ingredients
4 Calypso Mangoes
cup white sugar
Passionfruit Cream
300ml thickened cream
cup sour cream
1 tsp vanilla bean paste
2 passionfruit, pulp removed
Method
1. To make passionfruit cream, whip the cream,
sour cream and vanilla together until thick.
Fold through the passionfruit. Cover and
refrigerate until ready to serve.
2. Cut the cheeks from the mangoes. Score the
mango cheeks. Spoon the sugar onto a plate.
3. Heat a large, non-stick frying pan over high heat.
Dip 2-3 mango cheeks (see tip), cut-side down,
into sugar. Place a sheet of baking paper into the
hot pan, then add mangoes, cut-side down. Cook
for 3-4 minutes, or until sugar has caramelised.
Using tongs, lift mango cheeks onto tray,
nto a trayy, cut
side up. Discard the paper. Repeat remaining
at with remmaining
mangoes and sugar.
4. Serve mangoes with passionfruitt cream.

Tip: Best to cook in batches so the pan stays


hot and mango doesnt stew. You can also cook
mangoes on a flat plate of a barbecue if you prefer.
They are delicious served with coconut ice-cream.

stuffing
Stuffing enhances the flavour of meat and
poultry while it is cooking. Or it can be
cooked on its own to serve as a side dish.

1 STUFFING BALLS
Gently fry 1 chopped onion in 1 tbs olive oil
until soft. Mix with 1 tbs chopped sage, 2 tsp
grated lemon rind and 2 cups fresh breadcrumbs.
Season. Stir in 1 lightly whisked egg and roll into
walnut-sized balls. Cook in a roasting pan at
180C for 30 minutes until golden.

2 CHICKEN STUFFING
Tear 8 slices stale bread into chunks.
Fry 1 chopped onion in 50g butter until
softened. Combine bread with onion, cup
chopped herbs (parsley, thyme and rosemary)
and cup milk. Season well and mix together
well. Perfect to serve with roast chicken.

3 PORK STUFFING
Heat 20g butter in a frying pan over medium-high
heat. Add 4 chopped bacon rashers and cook for
5 minutes until crisp. Add 1 chopped onion and
cook for 5 minutes until soft. Remove from heat
and stir in 2 cups fresh sourdough breadcrumbs,
cup pistachios, cup chopped dried apricots
and 30g soft butter. Ideal to serve with pork.

4 GLUTEN-FREE STUFFING
Heat 2 tbs olive oil in a frying pan over medium
heat. Add 1 crushed garlic clove, 1 chopped
leek and 2 chopped bacon rashers. Cook for
5 minutes until leek is soft. Cool. Add 2 cups
gluten-free breadcrumbs, cup chopped
parsley and 1 beaten egg. Season well.

5 APPLE & CRANBERRY STUFFING


Heat 2 tbs olive oil and 40g butter in a medium
frying pan over medium heat. Add 1 chopped
onion and 125g chopped bacon and cook
until softened. Add 1 grated green apple and
cup dried cranberries and cook for 5 minutes.
Cool. Combine 4 cups sourdough breadcrumbs
in a large bowl. Add cooled onion mixture,
2 tbs thyme leaves and 1 whisked egg.
Season. Stir well to combine.

PORK CRACKLING
Prep 5 mins | Cook 40 mins

Preheat oven to 220C. Dry 500g


pork rind* well using paper towel.
Score using a sharp knife. Rub well
with 1 tbs olive oil and salt. Lay,
rind-side up, on a rack over a roasting
pan. Bake for 40 minutes until rind
bubbles, is a rich golden brown and
crisp. Break in pieces to serve, or add
to the Crispy salad with pork
crackling & pomegrante on p50.

TIPS FOR
BEST CRACKLING

1
The drier the rind the crisper
the crackling! The best way
to dry it thoroughly is to leave
it uncovered overnight in the
fridge. But don't panic if you
forget. You can always use
your hairdryer!

2
A generous rub of salt helps
to draw out moisture and also
enhances the flavour.

3 Scoring the rind with a sharp


knife allows the fat underneath
to melt, self-basting the rind
as it cooks. Cook the rind on
a rack to allow the heat to
circulate evenly.

honeycomb
1 cup caster sugar
1/4 cup (60ml) golden syrup
1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
malted banana ice cream
5 frozen bananas, roughly chopped
1 can (395g) sweetened condensed milk
1/3 cup malted milk powder
600ml thickened cream

1 To make the honeycomb, grease and line a 26 x 16cm


slice pan. Stir caster sugar, syrup and 1 tbs of water
together in a deep saucepan over medium heat until
sugar has melted. Simmer until a rich caramel colour.
Remove from heat and quickly add bicarbonate of soda.
Beat with a wooden spoon until foaming and well mixed.
Carefully transfer to slice pan and set aside. When set,
break into pieces.
2 To make the ice-cream, line a 26 x 16cm slice pan.
Process bananas and condensed milk in a food processor
until creamy and smooth. Add malt and cream and
process again until smooth. Transfer to the lined pan,
cover and freeze for 1 hour. Remove ice-cream from
freezer, fold 1/2 the honeycomb pieces through ice-cream,
then freeze for a further 4 hours or overnight. Place
remaining honeycomb in a sealable bag and set aside.
3 Remove ice-cream from freezer. Line a large tray with
baking paper. Using a 7cm round cookie cutter, cut out
8 discs of ice-cream, place onto prepared tray and return
to the freezer until ready to serve.
4 To make the ginger snaps, preheat oven to 180C.
Line 2 trays with baking paper. Combine butter, brown
sugar and golden syrup in a saucepan and cook over
medium heat, stirring, for 2-3 minutes or until butter
melts and sugar dissolves. Set pan aside for 5 minutes
to cool slightly. Add flour and ginger to the mixture
and stir to combine. Working in batches (youll need 16),
drop 1 tsp of mixture on to the trays, spaced well apart.
Bake for 4-5 minutes or until they are bubbling and have
spread to about 7cm in diameter.
5 Remove ginger snaps from oven and allow to cool for
1 minute. Carefully transfer to a wire rack, then transfer
to an airtight container, with layers of baking paper in
between each layer until required.
6 To serve, sandwich together one ice-cream disc with
2 ginger snaps. Serve immediately.

And for the perfect cheese board

1
Limit the selection to
two or three cheeses,
and vary the textures
and flavours. Try a vintage
cheddar, a mild blue and
a creamy full-flavoured
soft cheese such as brie.

2
Be careful when
choosing crackers
as you dont want
them to overpower or
compete with the taste
of the cheese. Try grissini,
lavosh and crackers that
arent too fragile.

3
Serve cheese at
room temperature,
but not if its an
all-time high that day!
Remove from the fridge
and cover loosely with
a damp cloth to prevent
sweating or drying out.

Keep your kitchen well-stocked with Multix Alfoil to make sure
you cover all bases this Christmas.

TIPS FOR THE PERFECT TURKEY


Make sure you tent your turkey with Multix

Multix Extra Wide Alfoil makes it perfect
for cooking large dishes as it can cover
a big turkey or seal an entire baking tray.

KEEP IT UNDERCOVER!
Use Multix Alfoil to stop your festive roast
drying out while cooking. If youre feeding

so handy to cover those bigger birds or
hams. Alfoil is also great to seal in a salads
