    "Cystal yfed o'r cawl â bwyta's cig" - It is as good to drink the broth as to eat the meat --Cattwg the Wise. Cawl (pronounced 'cowl') is just like any other old farmhouse soup or stew. We pick up whatever is in season, chuck it in a pot and boil it for a day, then guzzle it up the next day and moan about how much our belly aches afterwards.

    We attended a fair in Wales and the ladies of the local church were selling these cakes. We asked for the recipe and they graciously shared it with us.

    A traditional Welsh cawl recipe made in the slow cooker. This slow cooker cawl couldn't be easier! Feel free to add leek instead of onion, if desired, and make sure to save some leftovers - cawl is even better the next day!

    A real Welsh version of rarebit that is made with sharp Cheddar cheese and fresh thyme. Simple, and delicious! Garnishes are almost endless, from poached eggs, to sliced tomatoes, to pickled onions and piccalilli, to bacon. Really, put anything you think would taste good with toast and cheese on there, and tuck in.

    This recipe gives you the sweetness you need from the fruit with just a little added sugar. Delicious served with a cup of tea and smeared with a little butter.

    Similiar to pancakes but thicker - these are simply delicious eaten warm, with butter and jam.

    Hi, this recipe was given to me by a neighbour. Cooked on a hot baking stone. If you don't have a baking stone use a heavy based frying pan instead.
