Reviewer: Dr Elizabeth McFarlane from Beckenham UK
Please enlighten me - what is 1 can of Solo? or 1 jar Baker Poppy filling? is this poppy seeds? Please forgive a naive British women. I want to make the perfect cheesecake (with raisins) reminiscent of an excellent Polish cheesecake that used to be sold next to Wimbledon Station in the 1950s and 1960s and of that made by my sister's Russian Jewish Mother-in-law Rene Abel. Is this a contradiction in terms?
