Hooray, we are in the middle of a heatwave. A real Irish heatwave. The highest temperature today was 26 degrees Celcius. WOW!
I was lucky enough to receive a voucher for my Birthday last week. Thank you very much to the person who gave it to me, as it meant that I was finally able to buy a real BBQ. Which has of course meant that I’m revisiting all my great BBQ recipes. What I’ve done today is linked the best in this blogpost so you can return at your leisure.
In fairness not really a BBQ recipe but a brilliant salad that is perfectly okay to eat on its own.
If you’re hosting a party, you don’t want to be spending hours slaving in the kitchen. This is a perfect salad to make with in-season fresh peas or with frozen either!
One of my most popular recipes to date, this simple coleslaw is a tried and tested family recipe from my mother’s cookbook.
Sauces & Rubs
If you’re going to make this chilli sauce, make a double batch as it’s addictive and keeps well in the fridge!
The apples in this sauce add the perfect sweet note to the sour from the vinegar. Great for pork!
Rub this simple spice mix over chicken, pork or beef before cooking or keep it in a sealed jar and use it as required.
This is an unusual but excellent pairing. Marmite works very well with meat and tofu alike.
Be the toast of any party with this quick ice cream.
Baked BBQ Banana – While not so visually appealing, bananas and BBQ are made for slow burning embers!
Whatever you’re up to in this fabulous weather have a great time!
