I guess you use it when you need it to incorporate quicker or something. I honestly don't know if it will affect the recipe to use plain white sugar.   ~S~

It is simply sugar that is a finer grind than regular sugar.   Have a good Thanksgiving!   Bob Conway ...     At 02:46 AM 11/28/97 -0500, you wrote: >What is castor sugar, please?

From: bpearson@adelaide.on.net (Brian Pearson) Date: Fri, 28 Nov 1997 22:30:45 +0930     > With kindest regards to our cobbers across the puddle, but to the best > of my knowledge, Pavlova originated in New Zealand. > Whatever, it sure is a very special desert, specially loved by > those bountifully girthed .. .. who shouldn't!.......Ron Pearcy.   We Aussies love our cousins across the Tasman even if they say "nk" when they are trying to say "ink". After all hundreds of thousands of them live here because of the close relationship between our two countries, and I have about a hundred relatives over there, but if THEY WANT WAR THEY SHALL HAVE IT!   When the famous ballerina Anna Pavlova was staying in Perth, the capital of Western Australia, the chef at her hotel created this delicacy for which both Australians and New Zealanders would kill if that were the only way to indulge in it. Next they'll be claiming to have invented the LAMINGTON, which is made in its millions for church socials and football club fund raisers. What is that? A sponge slab cake cut into oblong sections about two inches by three, dipped in a heavy chocolate sauce, and rolled in desiccated coconut. Scrumptious - to an Australian that is! Perhaps Ron was thinking of the fact that Kiwi Fruit slices are put on top of the sweetened whipped cream in many pavlovas instead of the traditional strawberries, but even that fruit (in the commercial growing of which New Zealand is now the world leader) USED to be called the Chinese Gooseberry.   What about coming to the Easter Convention of TOSA (Theatre Organ Society of Australia) some time and sampling these culinary delights? The next one in 1998 will be in Adelaide, the capital of the state of South Australia, from Good Friday to the following Monday. It will feature three theatre pipe organs, with the main concerts being held in TOSA(SA)'s own Capri Theatre on our 4/29 organ, which is acknowledged by every overseas and local organist who has played it to be one of the finest in the world - well up with the most famous theatre organs in the United States. Lew Williams, among others, will put it through its paces.   In addition to listening to fine organ music, you can visit the nearby wineries that produce Jacob's Creek, Grange Hermitage and many other gold medal wines like last year's world champion methode champenoise sparkling wine (boy, were the French upset at that) and drink their wares while enjoying a meal to remember at one of Adelaide's dozens of fine restaurants. Perhaps you might even order a slice of pavlova with Kiwi Fruit for dessert, and of course visit our beautiful neighbouring country during the return journey to your home.   Cheers, Brian.   P.S.: Today's "Advertiser" had a news item about an exchange of vineyard stock and knowlege with the French. The Southern Vales - just outside the suburban area - are sending cuttings of 130 year old Shiraz vines to France to improve their stock. And now we are capitalising on our equally old olive plantations to make world champion oils. Not bad for a corner of the globe which saw its first European settlers in 1836.

It is simply sugar >that is a finer grind than regular sugar.   Ah, but isn't fruit sugar fructose, and regular sugar sucrose, two different sugar sources entirely? Which brings us back to ground zero.   What about putting regular sugar in the blender or something? Maybe that would make it finer.....   Or just make sure it dissolves in whatever liquid it's going into before adding anything else?   Kahlua and raspberries in what sounds like a meringue, huh, Pete? Yum!   --Shirley    
(back) Subject: List Procedures, Commands and Digest form! From: "Dr. Peter G. Pocock" <pgpocock@ix.netcom.com> Date: Fri, 28 Nov 1997 09:02:29 -0800   Hi Everyone. With the holiday season coming up, here are the list Procedures etc. for your infotmation. Please file them so that you have them readily at hand.   Also, dispensation <chuckle> is over for the Pavlova discussion :):):) Back to Pipe Organs and Related topics thanks.   Pete!   This is a regular administrative posting, please retain for your records.   =========================================== LIST ADMINISTRATION, GUIDELINES and ETIQUETTE =========================================== ================ ADMINISTRATION: ================   To "Subscribe" to PipeChat send email to:   requests@pipechat.org   saying:   Subscribe PipeChat   To "Subscribe" to PipeChat DIGEST send email to:   requests@pipechat.org   saying:   Subscribe Digest PipeChat   Note: For Digest subscriptions, you do not need to subscribe to the general list first, just subscribe directly to the Digest.   To "Unsubscribe" send email to:   requests@pipechat.org   saying:   Unsubscribe PipeChat     If you have any administrative questions on the services available from the list please send them to:   admin@pipechat.org   stating your question or problem and we will get back to you as soon as possible.   ====================================================== ETIQUETTE ======================================================   1. Be kind to one another.   2. Please respect other list members points of view, we are all individuals and entitled to our opinions, that's what makes life interesting :):)   3. One rule applies absolutely -- NO FLAMING UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES. The list owners will be reading each post and if we see flaming going on you will be warned once. If there is a repeat, you will be removed from the list.   ====================================================== GUIDELINES ======================================================   1. Have fun. (It's the only polite thing to do here)   2. Make friends. (How do you make friends? Listen to other people. Validate their thoughts and feelings. Be willing to tolerate and accept them as they are. Have fun.)   3. Learn tolerance. Discuss ideas, rather than judging people.   4. Maintain a sense of humor. There's nothing like a good slice of humor for breaking up a flame war.   5. Use lots of smileys and poses. It is difficult to read tone of voice. This helps the humor impaired.   6. If something someone has said upsets you, ask for clarification first without the use of emotional language. They may have been joking or they may even reconsider their comments.   7. If someone on the PipeChat mailing list has written something which distresses you, you can always privately ask Pete or David to pummel some sense into them :) Do not use up mailing list bandwidth doing so yourself.   8. Please do not use up mailing list bandwidth explaining Netiquette to those poor lost newbies. It's not what this list is about. If you must, do so privately.   9. When responding to a message, quote only the relevant bits. No one is going to want to read your message if they have to dredge through miles of previous messages. Besides, it wastes bandwidth.   10. Please keep signatures to around four lines long. 11. Members of this list are allowed to wander off topic provided what they have to say is interesting or humorous. 12. Mail is handled by the list server immediately. If there are any delays, we apologize, however, they are out of our control.   13. Please reply generally to the list. However, please consider wether it would be better to reply to the individual rather than the list, thus reducing list traffic.   14. What to post? Anecdotes.... sadnesses.... joys.... Anything you feel comfortable posting. You will soon pick up if the list is going to respond to your topic.   15. Please think twice before posting. For those who are not on Digest form, it is very easy to overlow their mail boxes, please be considerate of others on the list.   16. What not to post! Items that have nothing at all to do with PipeChat and its guidelines--e.g. TEST messages, Virus warnings, Church matters that are not music related or topics that are better dealt with by other lists.. If you feel uncertain as to the content of any email, please send it to the Admin address and we will guide you as to wether we feel it should be posted or not.   17. Finally, this is a place to enjoy yourself, feel relaxed about music, pipe organs, theater organs, church organs, electronic organs and church music. Make the list what you want it to be. And LOTS of HUMOR PLEASE :)   Dr. Peter Pocock List Administrator
