Yes we get abalone. When I was a teenager we'd dive for them.

We cooked them quickly after slicing them very, very thin in oil & white wine. Could also mince them and make small patties.

Hi Shannon,

Hope you are OK. Got any good fish recipes? Or anybody else got some - flat fish are plentiful here - we get Brill, Turbot, Plaice, etc

Many thanks

Steve

Thanks Brooksy,

We get a species of Abalone here, just about, called an Ormer - Haliotis Tuberculata. Not allowed to dive for them though, can only be gathered between Jan and April by shore gathering - up to your neck in water finding them by feel!!!! Good fun eh!

The way they are cooked here is to get them out of their shell, give them a good scrub, beat the devil out of them, fry in butter, and stew for hours with onion carrot etc. for about four hours. Tried them, not that keen. Seems to be a delicacy in times gone past though.

If you are interested, we have a traditional Guernsey dish called "Bean Jar", a variation on a French Cassoulet.

Let me know if you want to try - or anyone else????????????

Regards

Steve

fluffy white snow! LOVE IT! (as long as it does not turn to ice) Temperature is 9, sure the wind chill is negative. After it goes below 15, it all feels the same. The wind is not blowing though, that helps!

It's a balmy 13 right now. I'm glad I spent the past couple days cutting wood, this winter has been brutal so far and it's not even winter yet!
