 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    2      ounces        fresh white bread crumbs
                         finely grated rind of 1 lemon
    1      teaspoon      lemon juice
    5      ounces        rich short crust pastry -- see note
    6      tablespoons   Golden Syrup -- see note
 
 Put the syrup into a saucepan with the bread crumbs, lemon rind and juice
 and heat gently until just melted.  Cool. Roll out the dough and use to
 line an 8 in pie plate.  Pour in the syrup mixture.  Roll out the dough
 trimmings and cut into long, narrow strips.  Arrange them in a lattice
 pattern over the filling. Bake in a moderately hot oven (400F) for 25 to
 30 min or until the pastry is slightly browned.  Serve hot or cold.
 a) Golden Syrup, or treacle may be substituted for light molasses or
 honey. b)  You may substitute the pastry by an unbaked pie crust from your
 local bakery.

 NOTES : This is surely the way to an Englishman’s heart.
         You may substitute treacle for honey or light molasses.
