tatties

Hi Jane,

a few people have said that British Queen is great hence my purchase, I bought Anya as well as pfa thinking it was an early rather than main crop but was foiled on that one.

The harvest will tell, slugs and blight permitting.

Chantal, buy those pigs and save their bacon, keep them in the outhouse and the snorting and farting they are honour bound to do will cause lil ol mousey to pack his bags and move somewhere far far away. :shock: You will of course need some crusty bread and brown sauce for the pigs when they have do...

Chez, Thank you for the quality Blackcurrant bushes. With those monster well established ones on your patch I can see why they were superfluous. The Crown prince pumpkin was also very welcome, I just hope that the dreaded seville marmalade tastes as good as the pumpkin looks. Chantal, all the barrel...

really

Have you ever tried Mamade? As said in an earlier post I cant taste the difference having made it both ways but then I cant taste the diffence between 1987 and 1992 Chateau Neuf du Pape. To be honest whether you chop up fresh oranges or use tinned, by the time you have boiled it up to setting point ...

Grock,

Grock, I fear that you have been cooking with aluminium pans for too long :shock: Tescos are a bit odd with things like that. I once spent half an hour looking for pudding rice, believe it or not in the rice section only to find it with the tinned rice pudding. The same with the ma made, I looked in...

tatties

The aluminium residues given off by aluminium pans can over time help to bring on Alzheimers disease according to research my wife dug up (she works in the mental health field). :shock: Even if this has been debunked it cannot do your body any favours.

So, stainless steel it is then.
