Is that sugar on the top? I'm wondering what a 'knob' of butter is. Is that a raisin I see on the plate? It's been so long since I had a slice of apple pie....I'm thinking maybe raisins are one of the standard ingredients (from childhood). Too many questions?

looks delicious....

Very good entry, Barbara..:-))

Yes, Larry, that's sugar on the top...I know it's naughty, but it gives it a lovely crunch:)) a knob of butter is a very difficult question to answer, now I get down to it!! However, Geoff , a retired clergyman and IT specialist has given the following definition:

A knob of butter is about a heaped tablespoon, or about the same size as you would pick up between three fingers and a thumb.

A knob of butter is defined as an isosceles right-angled tetrahedron whose adjacent is equal to half the height of the block of butter....

so there you have it!! That is indeed a raisin on the plate...I usually use sultanas soaked in apple juice, but as I didn't have any, raisins had to do:)) It really was delicious, though I say so myself!! I don't mind how many questions you ask, Larry, as long as I can answer them for you.......:)))

Thank you Paulina, it was:)

Thank you Wijnie:)

I loved the explanation for the knob of butter...it totally draws a picture for me. Before I started reading commentary made by English folk, I thought I knew the English language! :-)
Looking inward, I wonder if you understand half of what I write!! Yankee English tinged with "Hillbilly and "Southern" colloquialisms.

Glad you liked the explanation....makes sense, as you say when you can picture the action of acquiring a 'knob' of butter....now then, a question for you......what is a 'stick' of butter? Sounds nice, but I don't know what it is!
Mostly, I don't have a problem with anything you write...I have a fascination with everything and everyone 'foreign' (!)....always have had, from being a child:)))

Barbara, a stick of butter is equal to ½ cup or ¼ avoirdupois pound. Most non-whipped butter in this country is packaged per pound (4 sticks), each of which is usually wrapped in waxed paper. There are marks on the wrapping so that it can be cut off the stick in tablespoons (4 tablespoons=¼ pound). Grocery store sweet cream butter is sold as salted or unsalted.

Thanks for the explanation Larry.....I read somewhere that very few kitchens in the US have or use scales to weigh ingredients.....that can't be true surely? There, another question for you to answer!
Nov 06 2013 21:00 GMT larrybenedict
Barbara, I use a digital scale for weighing ingredients. I rarely see any kitchens with scales......just "nit-pickers" like us use them. (A "nit-picker" is one who has a love of detail of things and exact measurements). :-) I generally weight things in grams. If a recipe calls for ounces, I usually convert to grams. My digital scales only divide a gram in half, not tenths. Close enough for my palate!! :-))

Thanks for the answer, which was a bit of a surprise to me...not that you use digital scales....only to be expected, but that so many don't!! I usually convert grams to ounces...I'm a bit of a dinosaur:)
