Jenolan Caves

This is not Jenolan Caves, we use the Jenolan name because we love the Jenolan, Abercrombie, Wombeyan, & Yarrangobilly caves.

    Baked Rice Pudding

    •  Jenolan
      • 120g rice
      • 300ml evaporated milk
      • 700ml full cream milk
      • 2 tablespoons sugar
      • Zest of 1 Blood orange (if available) or Naval Orange
      • Pinch cinnamon
      • 35g butter
      1. Place the rice in a deep baking dish. Add sugar, orange zest and cinnamon to the mixed milks and pour on to the rice. Dot with the butter and bake in the oven at 150C for about 1½ to 2 hours – the pudding will eventually have a golden crust. Set aside to cool slightly. Serve with baked rhubarb.

    Baked Rhubarb

    •  Jenolan
      • 1 1/2 bunch rhubarb = 620g trimmed
      • 1/2 cup castor sugar
      • 1/3 cup orange juice
      • 45g butter
      • zest of blood orange (optional)
      1. Remove any leaves from the rhubarb as these are poisonous, string each stem if necessary. Cut the rhubarb stems into 6cm lengths and place on a baking tray lined with baking paper. Sprinkle with the orange juice and a little castor sugar, orange zest and dot with butter then bake for about 30 minutes at 160C. The stems should still retain their shape, but be tender and a deep red colour.

    Helicopter Trip

    •  Jenolan

      Back on the 3rd of April I took Helen down to Bankstown Airport for her (and mine) first ever helicopter flight, we both wanted to see what had been done to Warragamba dam and also to see back into the catchment. Well it was a super fun experience.
