    Oh you are missing out. Aunt Bessie is just a life saver! Roast potatoes in goose fat, roast parsnips, just like home made. Uncle Ben, well couldn’t be without him in my cupboard. Perfect rice every time.

    I’m a coconut girl.... just love it. Now here’s another recipe for coconut slices.

    8 ozs flour
    6 ozs sugar
    3 ozs of dessicated coconut
    3 fluid ozs of cocunut milk
    3 eggs ( separate and whisk the egg whites)
    5 ozs margarine
    All whisked together.
    Tray bake or loaf tin
    Pour in mixture, it’s quite titillated.
    Bake 35-45 minutes ( 45 if in a loaf tin)
    When cooked.
    Add a dash of cocunut milk to icing sugar
    Make a few prongs in the top and pour over the icing
    ‘Tis lovely

    Caster sugar and self raising flour. Just ordinary cocunut milk, not from a tin as it’s too thick .

    Uncle Ben's


    Uncle Ben's is a brand name for parboiled rice and other related food products. The brand was introduced by Converted Rice Inc., which was later bought by Mars, Inc. It is based in Houston, Texas. Uncle Ben’s rice was first marketed in 1943 and was the top-selling rice in the United States from 1950 until the 1990s.[1] Today Uncle Ben's products are sold worldwide.

    Product type Rice
    Owner Mars, Incorporated

    OriginsEdit

    In the 1910s, the German-British scientist and chemist Erich Huzenlaub (1888–1964)[2] and the British scientist and chemist Francis Heron Rogers invented a form of parboiling designed to retain more of the nutrients in rice, now known as the Huzenlaub Process. The process entailed vacuum drying the whole grain, then steaming, and finally vacuum drying and husking.[3][4] Besides increasing rice's nutritional value, it also made it resistant to weevils and reduced cooking time.[3]

    In 1932, Forrest Mars, Sr., moved to the United Kingdom with a remit to expand the Mars food company internationally.[5] While in the United Kingdom, Mars learned of Erich Huzenlaub's work with rice. Huzenlaub's London based company was Rice Conversion, Ltd.[6] The two eventually formed Mars and Huzenlaub[7] in Houston, Texas, which gave Forrest Mars partial ownership of the Huzenlaub Process rice conversion patent. In 1942, through Mars's guidance and sponsorship, Huzenlaub created, together with Houston food broker Gordon L. Harwell, the company Converted Rice, Inc., which sold its entire output to the U.S. and British Armed Forces. The advantage of this product was that it could be air-dropped to troops in the field without risk of weevil infestation, and it could be cooked more quickly than other rice products. Additionally, the converted rice product would retain more nutritional value.[8] In 1944, with additional financing from the Defense Plant Corporation and an investment by Forrest Mars, it built a second large plant.[9] In 1959, Forrest Mars purchased Erich Huzenlaub's interest in the company and merged it into his Food Manufacturers, Inc..[10]



    MarketingEdit

    Since 1946, Uncle Ben's products have carried the image of an elderly African-American man dressed in a bow tie, said to have been a Chicago maître d'hôtel named Frank Brown.[11][12] According to Mars, Uncle Ben was an African-American rice grower known for the quality of his rice. Gordon L. Harwell, an entrepreneur who had supplied rice to the armed forces in World War II, chose the name Uncle Ben's as a means to expand his marketing efforts to the general public.[13] "Uncle" was a common appellation used in the Southern United States to refer to older male Black slaves or servants.[12]

    In March 2007, Uncle Ben's image was "promoted" to the "chairman of the board" by a new advertising campaign.[14]

    In 2017, Mars Inc, announced plans to certify the sustainability of basmati rice sold under the Uncle Ben's brand. This move is carried to encourage the local farmers to opt for the best agricultural methods.[15]

    The man-things idea of "gently prong the cake" looks like a massacre scene, but it tastes sooooo lush!

    Yeah :love: and for a treat

    Salted Maple Bacon Truffles

    Ingredients
    1/2 cup butter, softened
    3/4 cup brown sugar
    2 cups flour
    1 can (14 oz) sweetened condensed milk
    1 tsp maple extract
    1/2 cup finely chopped, cooked bacon

    Topping
    2 - 3 cups chocolate chips
    1/3 cup very finely diced, cooked bacon
    coarse sea salt

    Directions
    In a large mixing bowl, cream the butter and brown sugar until fluffy.
    Add in the flour, condensed milk, maple extract, and bacon.
    Stir until well combined.
    Using a small cookie scoop (about 1 Tbsp), scoop dough onto a cookie sheet covered with plastic wrap or parchment paper. I like to roll the dough into balls so they are round but you can leave them with a flat bottom if you want to.
    Freeze balls for about 20 - 30 minutes to firm up.
    When dough is chilled; melt chocolate in a microwave safe dish - or on the stove top in a pan - whichever you prefer. Be careful not to over heat the chocolate or it will seize.
    Dip a ball into the melted chocolate and then shake off any excess. Quickly sprinkle a pinch of the very finely diced bacon and a smaller pinch of sea salt onto the top of the truffle before the chocolate solidifies.
    Repeat with the rest of the truffles.
    I believe I got 56 truffles out of one batch using a small cookie scoop. If you don't have a cookie scoop then you can just pinch off a ping pong ball sized amount of dough and roll it in a ball.
    Once they are all dipped they do not have to be frozen. You only freeze them for a short time to make them easier to dip.
    Because of the bacon they should probably be kept in the fridge until ready to serve.
    You can use whichever chocolate chips you like. I find most people like the milk chocolate better so I tend to use them more often. For the ones pictured above I used 2 cups milk chocolate 1/2 cup dark chocolate, as that is what I had on hand.
