Walnotentaartjes

Een enigzins aangepast recept uit de 'People, Planet, Profit'. Die hebben het weer van de kookschool www.soul-food.be in België.

Ingrediënten

voor het deeg:
100 gram walnoten
100 gram volkorenmeel
25 ml rijststroop
25 ml ahornsiroop
50 ml ongeharde plantaardige margarine
1/4 theelepel zout

voor de vulling:
75 gram walnoten, licht geroosterd
125 ml water
50 ml rijststroop
25 ml ahornsiroop
1 volle eetlepel agar agar (= plantaardig geleermiddel)
1 eetlepel arrowroot, opgelost in een beetje water, of maïzena
1/8 theelepel vanillepoeder

Bereiding

Maal voor het deeg de walnoten en het meel in een keukenmachine tot een fijn meel.
Voeg het zout, rijststroop, ahornsiroop en de margarine toe en meng dit tot een soepel deegje.

Rol kleine balletjes van het deeg en rol ze tussen plasticfolie (tegen het plakken, het kan waarschijnlijk ook zonder) uit tot 4 mm dik. Steek er dan rondjes uit van ongeveer 8 cm doorsnede en leg ze ieder in een muffinvormpje.
Prik gaatjes in de bodem met een vork en druk er met de achterkant van de vork een getande rand in.

Bak de taartjes gedurende 8 minuten in een voorverwarmde oven van 180 graden. Laat ze afkoelen in de vorm en haal ze er dan uit. Vul ze met de geroosterde walnoten.

Doe de andere ingrediënten voor de vulling, behalve de arrowroot, in een steelpannetje. Breng zachtjes aan de kook.
Laat 10 minuten koken. Verdik het mengsel tenslotte met de arrowroot en laat even afkoelen.

Schep de saus over de taartjes zodat ze mooi gevuld zijn, laat opstijven en serveer.

Bill Mollison was born in 1928 in the small fishing village of Stanley, Tasmania, Australia. Bill Mollison left school at the age of 15 to help run the family bakery. He soon went to sea as a shark fisherman and seaman bringing vessels from post-war disposals to southern ports, and until 1954 filled a variety of jobs as a forester, mill-worker, trapper, snarer, tractor-driver and naturalist.

Bill joined the CSIRO (Wildlife Survey Section) in 1954 and for the next nine years worked in many remote locations in Australia as a biologist doing field work on rabbits, locusts, muttonbirds, and forest regeneration problems with marsupials. In 1963 he spent a year at the Tasmanian Museum in curatorial duties, then returned to field work with the Inland Fisheries Commission surveying the macrofauna of inland waters and estuaries, recording food chains and water conditions in all the rivers and lagoons of Tasmania.

Returning to studies in 1966, he lived on his wits running cattle, security bouncing at dances, shark fishing, and teaching part-time at an exclusive girls' school. Upon receiving his degree in bio-geography, he was appointed to the University of Tasmania where he later developed the unit of Environmental Psychology. During his university period (which lasted for 10 years), Bill independently researched and published a three-volume treatise on the history and genealogies of the descendants of the Tasmanian aborigines. In 1974, he and David Holmgren developed and refined the permaculture concept, leading to the publication of Permaculture One and Permaculture Two.

Since leaving the University in 1978, Bill has devoted all his energies to furthering the system of permaculture and spreading the idea and principles worldwide. He has taught thousands of students, and has contributed many articles, curricula, reports, and recommendations for farm projects, urban clusters and local government bodies. In 1981, Bill Mollison received the Right Livelihood Award (sometimes called the "Alternative Nobel Prize") for his work in environmental design. In recent years, he has established a "Trust in Aid" fund to enable permaculture teachers to reach groups in need, particularly in the poorer parts of the world, with the aim of leaving a core of teachers locally to continue appropriate educational work.

Bill Mollison is one of the Directors of the Permaculture Institute, which was established in 1979 to teach the practical design of sustainable soil, water, plant, and legal and economic systems to students worldwide.

Bill currently lives in Sisters Beach, Tasmania and is still reasonably active at the age of 82 years young. He still enjoys teaching Permaculture Design Certificate courses and as well as having many cups of tea with students he also entertains with practical information and the odd tale of his adventures overseas when students participate in our On-ground Training Camps.

Age is no excuse to get your hands dirty!!
