Q&A with Glenys Woollard - Food


DO YOU HAVE A BISCUIT RECIPE FEATURING ROLLED OATS?


Scottish Biscuits: Beat 125g softened butter with 1 cup sugar until light and fluffy then beat in an egg. Sift 1 cup flour with 1 teaspoon baking soda, add to the creamed mixture along with 2 cups rolled oats. Mix well then roll out and cut into squares. Arrange on a lined oven tray and bake in an oven preheated to 180C for about 15 minutes. Remove to a wire rack when cool enough to handle; serve buttered if you dare.

WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES THE WATTAGE MAKE IN MICROWAVE OVENS?

Generally speaking, the higher the wattage the faster your food will cook. The way microwave power is rated changed some years back, and what counted as 600 watts pre-1995 is now usually rated as 800 watts. Many modern microwaves are rated at 1000 watts or more, so it would be wise to consult the guide that came with your model.

Otherwise you should regard suggested cooking times as only a very rough indication.
