Lessons in Hungarian cooking

Today I went to visit Ili. The apricots have started ripening and so there was jam to be made.

We spent a couple hours making the jam, from de-pitting the apricots all the way to putting it into jars. I even have some to bring home so everyone can try them.

Ili also decided it was a good day to start with my lessons in other Hungarian foods.

I started by making rántás. This is a main component in many Hungarian dishes, so an essential to learn.

I then started making Potato pancakes. I don't remember the Hungarian name right now, but I will remember sometime later.

All in all it was a good day. I have new recipes to try at home.

Tomorrow is my (drinking) trip to the Ukraine with the rest of the teachers. I will wish you all Happy Canada Day now, I am not sure what I will be like tomorrow.
