Caesar's mushroom. Excellent raw in salads or grilled, stuffed or used as a garnish.
"Currant bread." Speckled loaf. A rich yeast fruit-bread with currants, sultanas, candied peel and spices including caraway seeds.
Laverbread. A fine, silky seaweed delicacy, collected from the beaches of south and west Wales. It is so rich in vitamins and minerals that it was suggested that miners ate it to compensate for their unhealthy lives underground.
Yeast. Used in bread-making, yeast is a raising agent. Dried yeast is activated by soaking in warm water until it bubbles. Quick, easy-bake or fast-action yeasts are also dried but they do not required soaking. If dried yeast is stated in a recipe, the same quantity of fast-acting yeast can be substituted. Half as much dried should be used as fresh yeast.
