8 oz or 225 grams  Self – Raising Flour

1.5 0z or 40 grams Butter

Pinch of Salt

5 fl oz or 150 ml  Milk

Pre-heat oven to 220 C  or 425 F

Sift the flour into a bowl & rub the butter in tenderly using your fingertips, add the salt and gradually add the milk. Then turn the dough out onto a floured pastry board. I like to use a small cutter which makes the scones small and daintly. Cook  for 15 minutes.  Cool on a wire tray and then decide what you will serve with your scones … like Jerpoint & serve the scones with raspberry jam and cream ….. the choice is endless.  Enjoy  :)


                                                                                                                             JERPOINT  APPLE  SAUCE


This is a very flavoursome apple sauce using eating apples, as they will not cook soft and fluffy, but will stay in slices.

  • 2 x red eating apples (1 x portion)
  • a generous dash of White Wine Vinegar.
  • a dash of Ground Cloves
  • a knob of Butter.
  • Brown Sugar to sweeten to taste.

Add all ingredients together and simmer for 10 – 12 minutes,  savour this delightful accompaniment with stuffed pork steak.  Bonne Appetite.




A special request from an American gentleman who visited Jerpoint Park  on a  CIE  Tours International tour recently to add a Shepherd’s Pie recipe to our website.  Shepherd’s Pie is generally made from lamb & Cottage Pie made from beef.

  • 1 large carrot grated
  • 2 cloves of garlic.
  • 1 grated eating apple
  • 1 1/2 lbs of minced lamb
  • salt & pepper to season.
  • Boulillon to thicken.
  • 1 pint of  homemade vegetable stock or vegetable stock cube.
  • 2 tomatoes chopped finely.
  • 1/2 cup of crushed tomato passata
  • mashed potatoes.
  • knob of butter.

Cook  minced lamb for 25 minutes  and combine with  it carrots, garlic, tomatoes, apple, passata, and buolillon and vegetable stock. Season with salt and pepper . Pre-heat the oven to 350 F.  Add to casserole, cover with mashed potatoes, glaze with melted butter & bake uncovered for 20 minutes.   Healthy dinner for those wintery days.  Enjoy.  Maeve
