I have never seen these in Thailand, in fact, have completely forgotten about them. Not sure exactly what "spiced rum" is, but the rest of it should be readily available:
..................................................................................................

You can’t go wrong with these classic favourites this Christmas.

Ingredients:
250g plain biscuits
3tbsp cocoa (plus extra for dusting)
1 cup desiccated coconut (plus extra for dusting)
2.5tbsp spiced rum
1 tin sweetened condensed milk
Optional: zest of half an orange

Method: Blitz the biscuits in a food processor until finely crushed. Add mixture to a large bowl, along with the cocoa, coconut and orange zest (optional). Combine all the ingredients.
Add the rum and condensed milk, and combine all the ingredients. Use your hands to make small balls and cover in coconut or cocoa.
Refrigerate for at least one hour.

Spiced rum is pretty much what it says on the tin (or bottle...). Until recently the only variety I could find was "Jerry Sailor", but I noticed recently Captain Morgan's Gold Spiced has finally made it's way into stores.

You surprise me Nereus, Having spent some time in Queensland I thought you may have come across this. Although I must admit I have only seen it on the shelves of bottle shops in the few years! Recipe looks good! :D

Oh, you mean that stuff made for girls? Real men do not drink it spiced with anything. Especially Vanilla! :shock:

This Christmas I finally got round to trying sauteed sprouts with bacon. (I know - but I'm a bit of a sprout purist.) Anyway as a first timer I used a packet mix by Schwartz. The instructions said about 450 gm of sprouts plus the bacon bits, and then 50 ml of water with the packet mix. That clearly wasn't enough water and I added more - enough so the sprouts could simmer a while after browning.
Have to say the result was disappointing. The flavour was fine but the texture of the sprouts was all wrong to me, even though I do like them quite crispy. The leftovers will probably end up in bubble and squeak.

By the way - Bluesky - you could spice up rum yourself (without the vanilla!)
A sprout is for life - not just for Christmas.

I happened to catch a portion of Jamie Olivers Christmas show where he was cooking outside. He did a sprout recipe inclusive of shredding the sprouts, cooking chopped bacon, olive oil, fresh rosemary, worcestershire, a little water, put the whole lot together in the fry pan and stir-fried. Looked good, at least better than just eating whole boiled sprouts on a plate. Pete :cheers:

You're correct Pete. Boiled sprouts must sure be the worst tasting vegetable on the planet. Then again, I don't think any chef could make sprouts taste good. :laugh: Cucumbers and sprouts :tsk: :tsk: :tsk:

Yeah I think you need the oil really - and a bit of garlic! But not sure if I will ever move on from those little green balls of methane whole and boiled!

I’m in the UK at the moment and we went to an Indian restaurant for a family meal and they served complimentary Brussels Sprout Bahji which was certainly a bit different than any way I had eaten them before but they were ok
