It’s expensive to travel, particularly out of the country. I want to experience foods from other cultures, so the International food aisle at my local grocery store will have to be my source of culture.
It’s a little dub-t, I guess, experiencing “culture” at my grocery store.
So welcome to the first episode on our journey!
This episode: Heinz Spotted Dick
Country of origin: United Kingdom
Tate works with a British chap who laughed when he told him we were going to try some Spotted Dick. He recommended we try it with some Lyle’s Golden Syrup. (Mmmmm, Lyle’s.)
We followed the directions on the can, microwaving for several minutes. After cooking, we poured a little heaven, er, I mean, Lyle’s on top.
Verdict: Well. Hmmm. It’s kinda like a dry-ish gingerbread-like cake with raisins. I guess if you like dry cake, gingerbread, and raisins, then this would be a jolly good dessert.
I didn’t much care for it, even when I added more Lyle’s. Tate really liked it.
Stayed tuned for future episodes of our culinary journey down the International food aisle. Any and all suggestions would be appreciated.
