White Cabbage How To Cook : Griddles For Cooktops : Ham And Cabbage Recipe Slow Cooker.
Sean preparing damper. Animal Tracks tour, Kakadu NP, NT. "...It is the end of our third day in Kakadu National Park, and it has been an amazing day. We went on a tour called 'Animal Tracks'. I first heard about it from the couple of bible-bashers who I met in Mini Palms gorge in Purnululu National Park. The tour is around the grounds of a large buffalo farm and is guided by a young Australian man called Sean and an aboriginal lady called Patsy. Sean is very passionate about aboriginal culture and knows and understands a great deal about their laws and rites. Sean is also very eloquent and an effective teacher with the ability to explain really complex aspects of aboriginal culture in terms that a white man can comprehend. This is harder than it sounds because aboriginal culture is so completely different to our own. His genuine enthusiasm and knowledge is inspiring. Few people will have met an aboriginal like Patsy. Ask most tourists what their lasting impression of aboriginals is and they will have only seen the drunks in towns and say what a shame it is. Patsy does not drink because she became Christian quite recently. Her father was an important medicine man, so she knows all the ancient, traditional teachings. We picked up Patsy from her house at the buffalo farm. It was really hard to tell her age. Somewhere between 30 and 45, I thought. She barely spoke when she first got into the front seat of Sean's safari-style Land Cruiser. Later Sean explained this was because we did not have a skin group, so she did not know how to interact with us. All aborginals have a skin group and laws dictate the interaction between groups. For example, if Sean, who was driving the truck had been Patsy's blood brother she would not have been allowed to talk to him and she would have had to have sat at the back of the bus. I saw another example of this a few days ago in Katherine, when Barney Ellaga came to visit Coco at the backpackers. A group of aboriginal women had also come to see Coco, among them was Barney's cousin. He would not go in the same room as her and had to wait for the group of women to leave. In these 2 examples, the laws prevent inter-breeding of genetically similiar individuals. There are other examples, however, where the reason is not so obvious. For instance, the leaves of the Step Mother tree look like the wings of a butterfly. It's so called because aboriginals think that the leaves have their backs turned to each other. According to the rules of aboriginal kinship, a mother-in-law is not allowed to face her son-in-law, hence the tree's name. Sean believes that these rules of kinship are the heart of the culture. A white man can learn how to gather bush tucker or make rope from palm leaves, but he will never know all the rules of kinship, because he does not have the right to know. And traditional aboriginals would rather let their knowledge die with them than teach it to the younger generation who to not respect or care for their culture. Sean thinks aboriginal culture will soon end with Patsy's generation. As the day progressed and Patsy showed us how to find freshwater mussels in the banks of a dry creek, extract witchity grub-like moth larvae from the base of a particular wattle bush, make string from cabbage palm leaves, make a cold cure from a green ant nest, and pluck, prepare and cook in hot coals, fresh magpie goose, she became more used to us. On the drive home she entertained us with stories of how her father used to hunt buffalo with just a small hand axe and gave us language lessons. Like school children we followed her lead, repeating what she had just said. She would hoot with laughter when we encountered words that were particularly hard to pronounce and everyone paused before mumbling their very poor, but best attempt. Her laughter was so infectious, that the whole truck would laugh, too. We ate the food collected throughout the day with billy tea and damper (a yeast-free bread traditionally cooked in hot coals) beside the fire overlooking a remote stretch of wetland. As the sun set, and the sky turned orange, flocks of magpie geese took to the air from their feeding grounds in the wetlands and passed overhead en-route to night-time roosts. It was the perfect end to a fascinating day. At the time, I could not explain the melancholy that I felt that evening after the tour. In retrospect, I think it was like the sadness associated with loss, an inevitable loss."Filipino Noodles (Pancit Sotanghon)
It's not difficult as you may think but a little bit tedious because of so much chopping and cutting and slicing and dicing. You get the point. Ingredients: Vermicilli noodles (preferably bean thread noodles from the Asian store) garlic, crushed or pressed onion, medium size, sliced meat - shredded chicken, sliced beef or pork etc. (this can be omitted if you're a vegetarian) shrimp, boiled and peeled - can be omitted also chopped vegetables - cabbage, carrots, green onions, mushrooms, water chestnuts, celery - any kind of greens really soy sauce salt white pepper anatto or paprika or saffron (for coloring, optional) 2 boiled eggs (need the yolk, crumbled) oil wok if you have chicken or beef stock - 4 cups of bouillon (sp) or if you are starting from scratch, boil chicken with an onion and a celery stalk and some peppercorns - shred the chicken - and save the stock - optional but adds so much flavor if included Amounts - no set amount - it depends on how much goodies you want in your noodles or how much noodles you want in your goodies. Usually what I do, before I start, I soak the vermicilli noodles in the boiled chicken stock. You can also soak the noodles in plain water. (Note, the noodles may be looooong, so it is wise to cut them with scissors while they are soaking.) While the noodles are soaking, Heat sliced onions and pressed garlic in hot oil - make sure to crank up the heat to high - until onion becomes transparent and garlic turns brown. You have to stir them in the oil. Add your meats and shrimp, stir until meat turns brown. Add the soy sauce, salt and pepper to add more flavor. (Remember this is in high heat and you have to stir all the time.) Add your vegetables ... quick quick quick. Stir stir stir! At this point, the juices of the meat and vegetables are oozing out, you have a cauldron of aromatic mixture especially if you have celery in the mix. Add your yellow coloring if you have (annatto, saffron or paprika, just a pinch or so to make yellow stand out). Once you have your mixture thoroughly mixed, add the noodles and stir again. You have to be quick otherwise your vegetables will get soggy. That's it. Garnish with extra shrimp, shredded green onions and parsley, and crumbled egg yolk. A squeeze of lemon or a sprinkling of lemon juice mixed with soy sauce would also add a zest before partaking. Enjoy!
