Wrong, wrong wrong.

Lamb and watermelon salad - wrong.
Chicken and mango - very very wrong indeed.
Sultanas in a curry...really, must you?
Pork belly with rhubarb and cucumber - just why would you?

Ham and pineapple pizza - fine, okay then, if you must. Pineapple on a gammon steak - why would you if you could have a dippy egg? But once again, if you absolutely must.

Don't let the ham and pineapple brigade off so lightly. There is a special circle of hell reserved just for them.

I don't feel strongly about many things but this is near the top of my list.

Out of interest, where do you stand on bacon in hot cross buns?

its a bit henry viii to my mind

I think it depends on the combination.
Chicken with a mango salad is awesome and Sultanas and apricots in tagine are lovely.
Have to admit I wouldn't touch lamb and watermelon though

Pork and apple sauce?
Lamb and redcurrant jelly?
Turkey and cranberry sauce?

Some rather classic combinations there.

SugarplumMary Tue 22-Mar-16 19:05:02

But what about classic like pork and apple?

Sausages with tomatoes in?

Duck and plum sauce/orange sauce?

Though I don't like the example you give.

No no no Yabu .. Rocket , parma ham , peaches, mozzarella and a strawberry / balsamic dressing .Food of the Gods ...

SugarplumMary Tue 22-Mar-16 19:06:04

x-post there.

What Scrambled said.

Also lamb and apricot tagine, and I tend to add prunes to my beef casserole if I can't get any pickled walnuts.

I don't approve of any sweet /savoury witchcraft. Yeuch.

Fruit and meat are my favourite combination - apple, banana, sultanas all make an appearance mixed up with a curry. Turkey and cranberry, chicken and mango, beef with tomatoes, chicken with lemons. Ham and pineapple is just the tip of my iceberg.

AnnieOnAMapleLeaf Tue 22-Mar-16 19:09:44

YABVVU! I make a fab chicken and mango salad and ham and pineapple are made to be nestled next to each other on a flat crust pizza with lashings and cheese!

Oh and YABU for making me drool! grin

Pork and apple I can't do. I always avoid the cranberry at Christmas (though I will have a smear in a brie and bacon pannini conversely)

Plum sauce is an interesting one, because there's no fleshy/watery stuff, it's very concentrated, and salty sweet, so bordering on acceptable.

Lamb and redcurrant - I am currently campaigning to have the legislation reviewed to make sure this is a criminal offence.

Tomatoes don't count. Yes, they are a fruit, but cooked down, somehow they become a whole new thing so hit me with Spaghetti Bolognese. Plus they are a kind of savoury fruit. That said, I don't like whole tomatoes anyway so I'd push them aside in a salad (I've tried to like them, and I could eat them if I risked offending someone but would probably wash them down with more wine)

YABU I love fruit and meat.

Curry with coconut?

Crazypetlady Tue 22-Mar-16 19:12:26

Chicken and mango curry
Chicken and mango salad with sugar snaps and a honey mustard dressing.
Watermelon and feta no meat is know but just pointing out fruit can make a meal
Pork and apple sausages

YABU ! 😀

TattyDevine Tue 22-Mar-16 19:13:08

I suppose coconut is a fruit. Damn. I do like coconut in a curry. Once again though it's not juicy/fibrous/overtly sweet...

I bloody love ham and pineapple pizza, coronation chicken, Stilton and apple, turkey with cranberry sauce.

They're all delicious!

TattyDevine Tue 22-Mar-16 19:13:55

Please tell me you were joking about banana in a curry Wiggles

londonrach Tue 22-Mar-16 19:14:09

Yanbu! Never understood ham and pineapple pizza and dont understand why anyone has apple sauce with pork! Can say the same about sweet and sora, sow, sowa (grr dyslexia you know what i mean) chicken (the taste clashes)

ThursdayLastWeek Tue 22-Mar-16 19:14:14

Pork and apple too mmmmmm

FeedMyFaceWithJaffaCakes Tue 22-Mar-16 19:15:02

I bloody love chicken and mango.
That is all

SugarplumMary Tue 22-Mar-16 19:15:09

Pork and apple sausages are nice - no watery bits.

Find a lot of butchers do these combination - pork and leek, pork and apple, pork and tomato was last lot we had supposedly to match nationalities of some sporting event on. They were extremely nice.
