  1. Not a term I've come across before. How does that work?
  2. This ^^^^. Crisp on the outside, glutinously soft inside, but we have them with onion and mushroom gravy and mash
  3. Until the GL revocation few magpies or pigeons ventured into my garden and most did not leave. Now the little ******s seem to be fully up with the law and just strut around chanting "Nah nah nah nah nah". We did spot a goldcrest the other day, though. the first I have ever seen outside the Observers book of birds

  5. My uncle was a big strong bloke who worked all his life in a Sheffield steel rolling mill (except for a period in the Parachute regiment in WWII). When the mill closed, he didn't complain ( well not too much). He found himself a job controlling the linen supplies in one of the city's big hotels, and woe betide anyone who didn't follow his system.

  7. Sounds ĺike your school cook was an individualist. My dear old Grandma, who was a Sheffield school cook in the 1920's used to serve up a pudding to us kids, consisting of fresh orange segments and desiccated coconut, all drowned in custard. She swore that the schoolkids that she fed used to love it. We grandchildren remained to be convinced

  9. Do you have any quince? ...and I believe it is called "bletting" when you let medlars mature.
  10. Fat Sarah, hand warmers. .............The mental imagery
  11. It wouldn't work. Nothing grows except bureaucracy under a Labour government
  12. Can they achieve that with sheep shears?
