Joan Gilbert introduces a selection of designs from the spring fashion show of the Hand Knitting Wool Council.
Helen Cox demonstrates the making of a favourite New Zealand sweet, the Pavlova.
(1) Grease a piece of greaseproof paper and place on oven tray. Light oven.
(2) Separate the yolks and whites of 4, 5 or 6 eggs (depending on the size of Pavlova required). Drop the white into a basin and the yolks into a small saucepan.
(3) Beat the egg whites for'minute, then add sugar gradually. Use oz. sugar for each egg white. Continue beating until mixture is very stiff, adding 1-1.1 teasp. vinegar and 1 teasp. salt. The mixture must stand in peaks without falling over.
(4) Pile mixture on to the greased paper, making a perfect round, about 9 in. across. Place centre of oven and bake for 11 hours. Allow to cool in oven.
(5) With the 4 egg yolks make a lemon honey, using 4 tablesp. lemon juice and 1 breakfast cup sugar. Cook until thick, then allow to cool.
(6) Lift carefully on to a large flat dish. If the top tends to break, don't worry. Spread with the lemon honey, then with at least 1 inch of whipped cream. (1 teasp. sugar and 2 or 3 teasp. rum may be added to the cream.)
Temperatures: Gas ovens: Reg. I for 1 hour, then I for 1 hour. Electric ovens: 250 deg. for 1 hour, switch low, then switch off for the rest of the time.

About this project
This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed
in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC
programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.
We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC
programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement
with the BBC.
There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
