Using turmeric in Italian cooking is definitely monstrous, in a tasty-looking way. What a great idea!


what a lovely, interesting idea - it's almost dessert. Thanks, I'm going to try this.

Thanks, Danielle. Good enough for your challenge and definitely a scrumptious result.

Kathryn, welcome to Scrumptious Street! It is delicious but not quite that sweet. Please try it and let me know what you think. I see we both made risotto fro the Spice is Right, Frankenstein's Monster challenge. Yours looks delicious too.


I just made this and its great!
I do have to say that i needed to change the recipe because i didnt have everything required.
i replaced the brown sugar with actual molasses, the lime with half a lemon and the dried cranberries with dried black currants... I didnt have amaretti cookies either, but i threw in a handful of chopped walnuts for crunch! Its great, but i will use lime next time!

Frederique, welcome to Scrumptious Street! I'm so happy you tried it out and liked it. Isn't it terrific the way you can start with one idea or recipe and just branch in your own directions? The walnuts sound terrific too, as do all your changes. Hope you like the amaretti cookies next time around.
