Australian and New Zealand Army Corps
Anzac Day - 25 April
is a national day of remembrance
when we commemorate all
New Zealanders and Australians
"who served and died in all wars,
conflicts, and peacekeeping operations."
It is a national holiday in both our countries.
Our soldiers have fought alongside
and supported each other in all
the wars we have taken part in.
This has created a strong bond between
our two countries.
There are rememberance services held in
every city and small town throughout
starting with the first service at dawn
and another at 11am in the main centres.
It is a tradition in most families
to make Anzac biscuits on this day.
Originally these rolled oats biscuits were
made and sold at fetes and galas
to raise funds for the war effort.
I made a batch of these biscuits today
as I do every Anzac Day and here is the recipe!
Please excuse the tatty page - it is from my
well used and much loved copy of the Edmonds Cook Book
a staple cooking bible found in every Kiwi home!
I hope you are able to buy Golden Syrup.
There is an english one called Lyall's Golden Syrup.
My daughter can buy this at her
Carrefour supermarket in France.
I would love to hear from you if you make these biscuits.
They are a favorite in our family
and with my French granddaughters too!
Thank you for visiting my blog
and leaving me such lovely comments
on my last post!
Take care and be kind to each other
Merci à bientôt
