I once had horse while on holiday in France, very nice it was too. I once had a pig whilst on holiday as well but I prefer not to talk about that.

I tried a sharon fruit (or persimmon) today, it's nice, it looks like a unripe, orange tomato. But it tastes likes peaches in syrup, with a texture of stewed rhubard, that one-directional, fibrous pulpy type-ness.

I will still try snails later in the months, sometime soon.

I absolutely detest packet sauces and jars, instead I always make from fresh but the other night I had a Levi Roots Caribbean Curry sauce from a jar with chicken, it was bloody lovely, one of the nicest things I've eaten for ages.

According to the Mail if you know what Hummus and Prosecco are you're posh. I quite like prosecco. I've never had hummus. I consider myself the absolute opposite of posh.

Even posher is you spell it 'houmous'. Although I do spell it 'houmous', I immediately thought prosecco was prosciutto ham. I had to look it up, Italian wine. Hmm. La-di-da. Houmous is nice, and pretty good for you, with the large amount of chick peas. I always thought 'hummus' was lazy American spelling, Wikipedia has it as 'hummus' and a myriad of other spellings.

I bought a couple of lambs' hearts from the butcher the other day, and used the recipe in Fergus Henderson's 'Nose to Tail Eating'.

  • Clean and trim the hearts
  • gently fry chopped onions and garlic
  • add red wine and simmer
  • add chunks of day-old (i.e. slightly dry) bread
  • smoosh together
  • add chopped sage and allow to cool
  • stuff hearts, then cover the opening with strips of bacon and tie into place
  • in a covered pot, cook gently in chicken stock for about 2 and a half hours
  • take out hearts, allow to rest somewhere warm under foil, while you reduce the cooking liquid
  • strain the liquid to use as gravy and serve up the hearts with mashed potatoes and marrowfat peas

...and very very nice it was, too. :)

Nose to tail eating. A woman went to the butchers and asked for a sheep's head, and would he leave the eyes in. Because it had to see them through the week. :dry:

It's too warm for a coat today
