Make Dormice! (not really, we just use drumsticks!)

  • 8 Chicken drumsticks

  • 1 cup plain flour

  • 2 teaspoons cumin seeds

  • 2 teaspoons caraway seeds

  • 2 teaspoons sweet paprika powder

  • tablespoon honey

  • 2 bay leaves

  • A little vegetable oil

Crush the cumin seeds using a mortar and pestle.  Put the flour in a plastic bag with the crushed cumin, bay leaves, caraway and paprika.  Lightly dab some vegetable oil on the drumsticks Toss the drumsticks in the bag with the flour.  Drop the honey into the bag. Give it a swirl around and leave the bag in the frig overnight so the flavours sink in.  Place the drumsticks in a lightly oiled baking pan and bake for 20 - 30 mins, or until a skewer pushed into the thickest part releases only clear juice

Dormice! ;)

1 lb ricotta cheese
A cup of whole-wheat flour
olive oil

Press curd cheese through sieve or let it hang in cheese cloth until it's drained well. Mix with the semolina into a loose dough. Let it sit for a few hours.  With wet hands form the mixture into dumplings. Quickly fry them in olive oil for a few minutes. Drain and roll in honey.  Delicious!
