    I have a box of this sat in my cupboard but no idea how to use it.
    Silly americans.. I have no idea what a cup measurement is, or a stick of butter.

    A cup measurement is about the size of a mug. You can get cup measures in Tesco quite cheap. In the US butter comes in 4 sticks per 1/2 pound from memory. So it should be about 2 oz. :D

    There you go, you can give it a try now.

    I just thought about this as 2oz didn't seem right for the butter, so googled and it's 4oz, so it comes 4 sticks to a 1lb.

    Suet & flour & water, plus spices or herbs. Hmmmmmmmm Dumplings.

    Do you just use it as you would flour then? The american measurements confused the hell out of me so I havnt tried it yet. xx

    lol trust them to be different :0)
    ive mainly made recipies from the pack and tweaking them but i did try making yorkshires replacing carb quick for flour , they tasted ok but did rise more like little cakes but they were great with my sunday roast . and ive used a teaspoon full to make a light roux for a gravy , that was luuuurvly :0)just trial and error i think
