Happy New Year
Happy New Year from Fred and Charles.
In Holland, it is traditional to make and eat oliebollen (oil balls) on New Year' Eve. They are made by making balls of dough, filled with sultanas and cooking them in very hot cooking oil. They are then served with icing sugar.
In our recent travels through Syria, we came across this chap making something a little bit silmilar, but made out of maize dough and later served in liquid sugar and covered in dessicated coconut..
Not sure now what this is called, but this series shows how they were made.
We will be celebrating New Year's Eve at home with some friends, one of whom will bring ready-made oliebollen and another raw herring and the rest some champagne!
We hope you all have a wonderfully Happy New Year.
