My little Texan village grocery has expanded and is trying to be very posh all of a sudden (which is a change from the standard Velveeta and Hamburger Helper choices) and has put in a British section of food! Imagine my shock to find some of the things you talk about in my own store here. It's quite pricy as it's all imported, so I want to try just one or two things at a time. Here's what they have to offer:
HP Brown Sauce and Fruity Sauce Branston Pickle Marmite Heinz Baked Beans (apparently different than ours?) Blackcurrant jam Galaxy bars Bounty bars Bird's Custard Bisto granules Robinsons barley water
Think there are more but can't remember. Of these, what should I try?
Oh, almost forgot the Heinz Spotted Dick. It's creating hilarity/shock throught the town
Yes, was going to substitute McVities digestives for the key lime pie crust. Think they are too thick to make effective smores, though. Glad you liked the Branston Pickle. Sorry, called your DD a DS on earlier post - did she taste the Marmite?
See, I have not heard of a joint of bacon before! So what my brain painted a picture of was a mess of sliced streaky bacon which had been boiled.
Our bacon is always salty and usually smoky. I've had pancetta, and while it's delish, to my taste it is nothing like bacon. It may be pork but it's a completely different beast!
No, my dd wouldn't try the marmite because it looks very different from what shes used to. I think I may try to sneak it on her. I added a dollop to my stew over the weekend and although I couldn't taste it exactly, it was a bit different. Even dd ate it and she hates stew!
This is what we're talking bout BP. Looks like pork but has been cured with salt/smoke. Boil for an hour or so then slice and eat with freshly baked bread/mashed potatoes/whatever you want. Then keep the leftovers in the fridge for snacking on.
