I am in the process of editing the next newsletter for the Group, and find myself being not so daunted as what I was in the early stages.
A few of the members are now providing me with articles to include in the newsletter, which is a big help.
This time around, one of the members is going to conduct soilPH tests for any members who want to bring along a soil sample of their property etc.
As the meeting is being held on the Saturday following the Fraser Coast show, there will be an opportunity to taste the fruit that was displayed on the Rare Fruits Stand for the 2 day show event. Always popular tasting the various fruits.

Have included in the newsletter, the winning recipe from the cooking competition at our last meeting. It was delicious.


4 cups grated cassava
1 1/2 cups sugar
3 eggs beaten
2 tbsp melted butter
1 can of coconut cream

Mix all ingredients and bake in oven at 180C. When halfway cooked, remove from the oven and spread with the topping.
1/2 cup condensed milk
1/2 cup coconur cream puree

Mix and pour on top of cake. Put back in the oven and bake a little bit more until the topping is golden brown.

I just have a few queries which I will bring up at the meeting:

How long do you bake in the oven before putting on the topping;
do you cook the cassava before grating it;
what size can of coconut cream.
