    1 lb. crisco
    5 cups flour
    1 tsp baking powder
    Mix the previous 3 ingredients until crumbly.


    Being an Aussie, can I ask please what is Crisco, I take it to be either oil or solid fat (marg., butter?) and yeah I know I am way behind reading the board posts, sorry........Jen

    Thank you so much. My mum used lard, (suet here) in cooking, don't know if you can even still get it, her pastry was great. I was on the right track, but wanted to be sure, I will use margarine. Lots of our ingredients are named differently to USA. I should look on internet to see if there is a comparison chart, because some of the recipes posted here sound yummy (and quick to make). Thanks again.......Jen

    You may know Crisco as shortening or vegetal fat. In Canada it is sold by the pound or in a 3 pound container.

    Sorry, i forgot to add that I would not use margarine, the fats aren't processed the same way. Margarine would replace butter not margarine.

    Sure does girls, thanks. This weekend I will be making Green Tomato Relish and Pickles.With our silly weather plants don't know if its summer or winter, last years bulbs up and flowering and haven't even got my order of new bulbs to plant this autumn(here in Aust). Tomatoes won't ripen on bush, just been ripening enough off the bush to keep me going for salads and general cooking, but sick of waiting so will do the relish etc. with greenies. Besides, want the space to grow something else. My whole land is only 405sq metres, including 4bed/rm cottage,carport and two garden sheds (one for quilting & craft stuff), so not a lot of garden space. Have a lovely Easter Weekend to all...Jen
