|Coconut peanut butter|
Food Diary (December 21, 2011)
Breakfast: Toast with schinkenwurst (ham bologna)
Lunch: Lentil soup with potato wedges
Dinner: Spinach soup with toast
My food highlight for the day was making coconut peanut butter. I used to only like my peanut butter plain and simple, without chocolate, honey or other flavours. I changed my mind when I tried coconut peanut butter. Peanut butter with a toasted coconut flavor, I like it, a lot. The bad news is that you probably cannot buy it from your supermarket. You have no choice but to make it. Thankfully it is really easy to make. The recipe is available here.

Chefs at The Fiddler's Elbow, an Edinburgh bar, have created what is referred to as 'coronary on a plate'. Battered butter balls or deep fried butter is supposedly already popular in the US. Deep fried butter makes deep-fried Mars bar seem so much healthier.
In case you want to try this at home, here is how they are made. Balls of frozen butter are dipped in batter soaked with Irn Bru and deep fried. Not too complex, a bit like making deep fried ice cream.
The fried butter supposedly tastes lighter than expected.
I feel for the Norwegians, they don’t have enough butter for regular consumption, let alone for making deep fried treats. They will have to get used to life without deep fried butter.
