It has been joked that the
UK and America are two peoples separated by a common language. That
separation sometimes extends to recipe ingredients. Here is a list of
British ingredients and the American equivalents. I have taken these from
some of the cookbooks I have and some from just being around my

Hope this will help someone
cook " properly".
P.S. I have a better
alternative to digestive biscuits for the list. Though you can use graham
crackers, my mother-in-law used arrowroot cookies found in the baby
section of the grocery store. These are cookies that you can give a baby
because they melt so easily.
Also, please be aware that
these are SUBSTITUTES, not the real ingredients. The real ingredients can
sometimes be found on the internet or at games.

FT Readers: THANK YOU!
Rebecca Bermonte of The
Leprosy Mission Canada has written to thank Family Tree Readers for the
stamps donated in 2000. The Leprosy Mission raised more than $8000. Stamp
wholesalers pay %5.40 per pound of trimmed stamps and this fundraising has
helped make it possible to cure many of those suffering from leprosy.
Knowing it takes a lot of
work and patience to save the stamps, trim them and send them in to The
Leprosy Mission Canada, 75 The Donway West, Suite 1410, North York,
Ontario Canada M3C 2E9, she wanted you to know that you are making a
difference. Keep up the good work!
