Soak raisins and currants in 1 cup wine overnight. Remove starter from
refrigerator and set, tightly covered, in warm place overnight. It
should be in at least a two cup container as it will just about
double its volume overnight. In the morning, cream butter with sugar
and beat in eggs and lemon rind. Drain wine from raisins into
creamed mixture. Stir in starter and 3 cups of the flour sifted with
the soda, salt and spices. Sprinkle the remaining 1 cup of flour over
the fruit and nuts in a large bowl. Toss and shake until well-coated.
Add to batter and mix thoroughly. Turn into loaf pans which have been
generously buttered. Let stand in warm place for 30 minutes. Bake in
oven preheated to 300 with a pan of water on floor of oven and rack
as near as possible in middle of oven. Bake about 2-1/2 hours for
medium-sized loaves watching carefully to see that they do not brown
to quickly. Test with toothpick. Remove from oven, turn pans on sides
and allow to set for a few minutes before taking from pans. When cold
drip 2 tbsp. of wine over each cake. As soon as it is absorbed, wrap
tightly in cellophane freezer paper and store in refrigerator or
freezer. They improve with age.

Food Tips of the Week

Advice on losing weight

Make sure that you drink enough fluids. Sometimes at some stage in a hectic work day, you feel you need food when in truth you may need a refreshing glass of water or cranberry juice. The feelings of hunger and thirst are somewhat similar, but one of them ends in weight increase and the other one leads to no damage.
Some low carbohydrate diet pointers:
* Food labels can be misleading Be sceptical of advertizing that claims to be 'low carb' - check the nutritional information on the back of the can or package. Many are only marginally reduced and in some instances still greater than a competitors standard brand. Also, beware of 'low sugar' and 'low fat' labels - 'low sugar' doesn't always mean 'low carb' - often the carbs are exactly the same.

The brassica family, Wonder foods that help with Your diet
(eg. Cauliflower, Boiled potatoes, Mizuna and Radishes)
Members of the brassica family are packed with vitamins (eg.folate and vit c), minerals (selenium and potassium, for example), isothiocyanates, antioxidents and indole-3-carbinol.

In addition to their numerous healthy effects, a few of these nutrients are thought to help reduce the cancer risk.
