I can't understand why vegans want their food to look like meat. If your vegan, fine, but don't pretend you're not by tarting your food up as something that its not. You  wouldn't want us meat eaters

Best way to eat pork pie cut it in half scoop out all the disgusting grey interior & filthy jelly & chuck it in the bin & eat the pastry or give it the dog  

Mrs B Welcome to NS. You'll hear all sorts of banter here old and new. Enjoy it. BTW  I'm from Barrow in Furness just across the water. Mum and Dad both worked in the ship yard. A few years ago my husband and I passed through Barrow. Me wanting to drink some sass and my husband wanting to see where I was born. No longer sass made, so sad.

Hi nonnaB

Hubby is from Heysham. We go up to the Lakes twice a year and have done several deja vue trips round there and Barrow. His family originate from Galgate.

Happy NY AND ALL THE BEST FOR 22

Hi MrsB. Dad was from Millom and visiting his family in Ulveston as children we would always look out for the blue works and the Hoad ( Hode?) on top of the hill.. Very fond memories spent with my maternal grand parents winkling and treading for eels over Walney.

Phil, If you find one that still has jelly in, please let me know. I'm having withdrawal symptoms.

Another favourite with me is black pudding. Many years ago I used to go to George Stafford’s shop at Stanley Common near Ilkeston. I believe they are still made to his recipe. George is now in the great black pudding shop up in the sky.

Good morning to you too BK.

and just to keep on topic…… I actually dislike pork pie, for breakfast, lunch, dinner or for a snack between meals.  It’s mainly the jelly I find unpleasant but also the colour…. The pastry is nice though!

Love the pastry ate the jelly !!!!!

I was a bit apprehensive about mentioning it, Ben, as thought perhaps Marsden's was a bit too high class to stock tinned steak & kidney pies/puds or common corned beef! 

 

;)

It was fray bentos tinned steak pie , once afew of us lads camped out at bulwell hall park remember those disused railway embankments ? Some one said there was a ghost train at midnight , we camped out we had a fray bentos pie with no tin opener to open that flat round tin , and no idea how to cooking it , funny old days them 70,s were !!!

There were a lot of things in kit form, ie everything you needed to make the product pictured on the box, in the 60s. I remember Promise, lemon meringue pie. Think they did other desserts as well. Birds trifle kits etc. Probably full of the now banned hydrogenated fats!

 

Smash dried potato and Marvel milk was, I suppose, only like the stuff available during the war. Don't remember seeing any powdered egg though.

Jill, i remember that birds eye trifle mix, we used too have it for sunday tea , the custard put me off abit but it was a good pudding ,but not as good as me Dad's ho.e made rice pudding baked in the oven !!
