Peggy's Leg, or Liverpool Toffee (Patrick Mears, Germany, 12/10/17 5:21 am)

Here's a recipe for Peggy's Leg, also known as Liverpool Toffee.  (See John Heelan, 10 December.)

JE comments:  "Melt on the hob"--??  Recipes really show how we're separated by a common language.  Is a hob what we Colonials call a cookie sheet, or is it more like a baking tray?  None of the above?

And can anyone tell us about Peggy?

From Peggy's Leg to horseflesh, check out this fascinating New Year's 2005 post from Prof. Hilton.  Nearly thirteen years later, it deserves a fresh viewing:

  • Peggy's Leg and Spotted Dick (Francisco Ramirez, USA 12/10/17 3:15 PM)
    Is Peggy's Leg more delicious than Spotted Dick?

    I am trying to figure out which to serve for the Holidays.


    JE comments:  A photo is worth a thousand spotted dicks, and this one comes in microwaveable form.


    As we prepare to head to Cuba, I look forward to the politically incorrect dish of Moros y Cristianos, which combines black beans with white rice.  For its part, Spain keeps the Inquisition alive with Judías Verdes (green beans/Green Jewish Women).  If the WAISitudes work together, I'm sure we could assemble quite a list.
