Monday TEA IN THE 50s

Recommended Posts

I must have eaten  a mile of this stuff since i was a kid, boiled with whole Onions  Cabbage and unpeeled Spuds , next day Mam would add a Quart of soaked Peas to the Liquor  and that was another cheap meal . you rarely see them now days but years ago they were very common and more importantly Cheap, did  any one else dine  so well????

Bacon ribs ?

I sold tons of them when a butcher but yet only tested them for the first time last year and have to say I've been missing out all those years.

i remember years ago when to lads from newcastle was over here and came out for a couple of days digging. my missus put up a huge plate of boiled bacon and cabbage with spuds.

they didnt know what it was lol. they said that they never had.

i found that hard to believe, but they cleaned their plates.

Growing up my mother never done them and only when I seen them in the butchers one day did I decide to try them. Like I say, I've been missing out as they're real tasty. As a butcher there's several things I sold and have never tasted but someday hopefully I'll eat brisket corned beef, crubbeens, tripe and cows heel. But they're nearly things of the past nowadays.

Oh, nearly forgot pigs tails.

Seems a distant memory now but do you remember when pork chops seemed to be massive with a bit of kidney attached on the back?

LOL, as a butcher by trade I'm embarrassed I got that wrong. I must have been thinking of dessert. Cheers Dytkos.

Aye and maybe even with the rind on for some crackling. Had kidneys this evening for my tea in fact. The beauty of having a proper local butcher.
