Large VAT.
Shouldn’t do as I’m still on steroids following my little stay in hospital, but it has been a long hard day!

I mean considering it's mainly cabbage & there's probably no more than 10p's worth of cabbage in the jar.. You don't need much of it though - a little goes a long way. Do you make your own or is it just cheap there?
A new batch arrived today and was placed on my dinner table: pa-gimchi, which is spring onions. The list of ingredients is very long, but essentially it tastes like lightly-pickled spring onions with ginger and chilli. It may look like alien entrails, but I assure you that it is the business.

Looks good to me. I guess you can just adjust the ingredients to suit your taste with a homemade one. This is the one I tried - your version is probably nicer..

I'll tell you when I have that kind most often--because I really prefer the leafy and green types--at barbecue restaurants.

Throw in a frying pan or on a grill and you'll find it goes crisp and sweet.

Is your old man a dustman who wears a dustman's hat and he has cor blimey trousers?
Ha, nice one. No he’s not. It’s just something I’ve got used to eating since I was a kid and I love them. Probably a product of growing up in S.E London.

You need to get the belly cuts which are soft and delicious. The tail end is always tough. I can’t really compare them to anything else taste wise, you’ll might have to try them.
Squid shouldn’t be chewy!!

I've only ever seen them (jellied eels) in jars in supermarkets, I'm not going to lie, I'm apprehensive but I'll make myself try them one day just so I have .. not enthusiastic about it though .

Most of the people I’ve got to try them don’t like them,so I’ll be delighted if you like them.

Jellied eels were good enough for Sophia Loren – and no apologies for posting this pic here again!View attachment 23050
She seems to be holding an invisible fork or whatever you use to eat jellied eels .. and Tubby Issac doesn't look too happy either way about it all ..

Probably because she's posing and didn't actually buy or eat anything?

The little dish she is holding might be suitable for some cockles, featured in the picture. Eels would not be sold in such delicate amounts.

Part of Sophia's charm was the powerful mythos of a screen goddess, born in poverty.

She might be wrinkling her nose at all the vinegar, which Brits deemed necessary to dress their seafood. They did things differently in Italy! :sshot:

Pork chop, chips and beans, I said pork chop chips and beans .. a rare treat that we celebrate briefly by singing ' oops upside your head' but switching the words.

Sausage hotpot

Me trying to clear the tins out of my cupboards

I managed to deal with four;

potatoes
veg soup
spagetti hoops
and canned pork and ham (some Spam imitation, I think)

Added oatmeal, marmite and a few random herbs.

This was nice but I am still convinced fresh is better.

I had a huge bowl, and some is left over for tommorrow.
