Recipe: Anchovy and Rosemary Popcorn Recipe

Anchovy and Rosemary Popcorn Recipe
 
INGREDIENTS
 
Serves 2-3 people
 
25g of butter
A 50g tin of anchovies in oil
3 sprigs of rosemary
40g popcorn, popped
 
The exact quantity of rosemary is not crucial to the success of this recipe – add as little or as much as you like, both to the butter mix and to the garnish.
 
METHOD
 
1.       Pop the popcorn in your hot air popcorn maker.
 
2.       Prepare the rosemary by tearing the leaves off 2 of the sprigs and break each leaf in half. Take the third sprig, remove the leaves and chop finely for the garnish.
 
3.       Place the anchovies, the anchovy oil from the tin, the butter, and the halved leaves from the 2 sprigs of rosemary in a pan.
 
4.       Heat on a low temperature until the butter is lightly bubbling, then leave for about 30 minutes. Shake the pan regularly to ensure the butter flows over the anchovies. Avoid stirring or shaking too vigorously as this will cause the anchovies to break up.
 
5.       Sieve the butter mix into a glass or bowl to collect the flavoured butter. We like to keep the rosemary and anchovy mixture to use as a delicious pasta sauce.
 
6.       If the butter has started to solidify, you will need to re-melt it in a pan. Pour the butter over the popcorn, add the chopped rosemary and shake it altogether in a sealed container to ensure an even coating.
 
7.       Enjoy with a chilled glass of wine or try serving this popcorn with lamb, as a lighter alternative to roast potatoes.

The Great British Bark Off Tips

The Great British Bark Off Tips
ADVICE ON BAKING FOR YOUR DOGS:
 
Treats can be highly calorific so you shouldn’t give your dog too much, and you ought to reduce daily meal portions accordingly as it’s certainly not intended as a replacement for his regular diet.  Speak with your vet to see if the recipe ingredients are appropriate, particularly if your dog has a sensitive tummy
          
 
FOODS TO AVOID GIVING TO DOGS:
 
Chocolate meant for human consumption contains theobromine which can be lethal – the darker the chocolate the higher amounts of theobromine.

Toxic doses vary according to the size of dog and cocoa solid content of the chocolate.

Contact your vet immediately if you suspect your dog has eaten chocolate intended for humans.

Dogs can be intolerant to cow’s milk and other dairy products so please ask your vet for advice before feeding dairy to your dog.

Raisins and grapes can also be lethally toxic and must not be given to dogs.

Small bones must not be given to dogs because of the risk of them becoming lodged in the dog’s throat or elsewhere in the digestive tract.

Dogs must not be given cooked bones because of the risk of splintering. If you are thinking of giving bones to your dog, please speak to a vet for advice.

Onions can cause anaemia, and must not be fed to your dog in any form.

Xylitol, a sweetener commonly found in sugar-free foods is toxic to dogs.
