Lemon sago

Sago is a weird thing.I mean, whoever looked at a sago palm and thought, "Hey, let's open that up and use the pith for eating chaps!"

Anyway,  I like making lemon sago with it.

1/3 cup sago
2 1/2 cups boiling water
juice and rind of one lemon
3 Tablespoons golden syrup
1 Tablespoon sugar

First you boil the sago in the water until it's clear, stirring regularly.

 Take off the heat.

Then you add the other ingredients and stir well to disperse the flavour.  Put in a bowl and chill until jelly like.

Serve with cream.

My kids love this stuff.


  1. Interesting ... will have to try that. Mum used to make sago as a milk pudding ... one of my favourite desserts.

  2. I can't wait for the day that I get to hear your voice IRL. I want you to use "chaps" in every other sentence. :) I also want you to make lemon sago for me since it is something I've never had.

    1. Righto I certainly will old bean! :-) :-) Chaps it is what!

  3. You know I have never had sago before.....but clearly it's something I have missed out on. BTW your samosas looked mighty fine.
