Cauliflower Cheese and Whisky
Cheese was often made in individual farmhouses each with it's own distinct flavor and texture and was combined with cauliflowers grown either in the fields or in the kitchen garden. Add a few ounces of whisky giving an extra flavour to this popular dish.
One medium cauliflower
6 ounces (185g) finely chopped mushrooms
Half of a finely chopped green pepper
Half UK pint (10 fluid ounces or 300ml or one and a quarter cups double cream). Note that UK and US pints differ.
4 ounces grated cheese. Use cheese with a good flavour. ( I use Amish farm cheese when I can find it. )
3 fluid ounces (80 ml or six tablespoons or less than half a US cup) Scotch whisky
1 ounce fine oatmeal
Pinch of nutmeg
Salt and pepper
2 ounces (60g or half a US cup) chopped, mixed nuts
Remove the cauliflower stalks and cook the florets in hot water for five minutes. Drain and put into an ovenproof dish with the chopped mushrooms and green peppers mixed in.
Heat the cream gently in a small pan, add the cheese, stirring frequently. When the cheese has melted, remove from the heat and mix in the whisky and oatmeal. Add salt and pepper to taste and the pinch of nutmeg. Pour over the cauliflower and sprinkle the chopped nuts on top. Bake in a pre-heated oven at 180C/350F/Gas Mark 4 for 45 minutes. Serve immediately.

One can not profess to be of "GOD" and show intolerence and prejudice towards the beliefs of others.
