    The Greatest Fork in the World

    As a small boy i often wondered why our cutlery (forks as well) had logos on them such as 'Mascot Cafe', 'Property of Selby District Council' and so on.It was years later when down my grandad's yard where he prepared food for his pigs that the food came from Cafe's, Hotels and Government Institutions that the answer came to me, but thought nothing of it. By 1960 I was in Germany as a soldier and found you could get a modern12 setting of cutlery with even a cake fork (who had ever heard of a cake fork?) at a modest price, so i took a box home. My dad said much later "do you remember when you came home on leave and tipped the cutlery tray contents into the bin, and put in your new stuff?"

    Canned corned beef

    As a British soldier in the 60's on manoeuvers in Germany we ate a lot of corned beef, and Spam for that matter. My favourite of all the ways was dipped in batter and deep fried, we carried our own spices to sprinkle on, stood on the edge of a forest eating it out off your mess tin waiting for the Russians.

    The Egg Sandwich

    The egg sandwich. In military terms it is know as 'The egg banjo' , made by your tank driver and passed to you over the gun at 0400hrs, with his oily fingerprints on the delicate white bread. Biting in to this wonderful thing will allow strings of yolk to run down your chest, which you have to brush away (hence the name): https://www.bing.com/videos/search?q=the+egg+banjo&&view=detail&mid=9E8103D6B07964650DC39E8103D6B07964650DC3&&FORM=VDRVRV

    Favorite Food Quotes

    I like the one at the end of this message.
  12. My crock of Sauerkraut is now in my garage, I started it mid August using Polish cabbages (like cannonballs) , we have a lot of Polish shops in England now. the cabbage when shredded came to about six kilos, a couple of apples and some finely shredded new carrots. the cooler weather is here and it will be on top form by the end of November and will stay in good condition until it is all used up , usually about May, i put up a few handfuls in a plastic container and keep it in the fridge, it is lush, not stinky but fragrant and flavoursome.

  14. I will never ever use my Borner Slicer without using the food gripper provided, my poor dear finger-tip: The saurkraut was lovely though
  15. Last week in 'Malinka', a Polish shop in Cheltenham i bought two large Cabbages (hard as cannon balls) 3Kg each, next week i will shred them and make saurkraut. My last batch, made in August 2017 has just run out, it stayed i fine condition to the last drop. Photographs to follow, only this time i will use the gizmo on the slicerr to operate it, my finger tip has just healed by the way. Photos to follow.
