Re: Tin opener

I guess i’ve been lucky so far, no rings fallen off so far - that I remember anyway. 8-) It’s not that I don’t buy tins with no rings and don’t use tin openers, but for my emergency food I try to look for the ones with rings. LOL ;) I have had a corned beef tin opening thingy break on me before, th...

Re: Tin opener

Have you not had the ring break off a few if those pull ones? I have, the tin opener still works on them though :D

Re: Latest product best by dates

You must also remember that food doesn’t last forever! Golden rule with food storage: FIFO - First In,First Out. Rotate,rotate,rotate. Our local Aldi isn't that hot on rotating stock, I've noticed it's not unusual to be bringing home stuff with earlier BBDs than the previous week or two :roll: Also...

Re: Brexit in October?

I suppose its a bit saddening that we're all so accepting of what we're going to get, whatever it is. Its a pity we can't run a poll on here to see what we all thinks how it will pan out. It's going to be shite, what flavour is not exactly clear :roll: although as ever those at the bottom of the he...

Re: "new" sticking plasters....

My wife is allergic to most plasters so I think it may be worth a try because the problem is most likely adhesive, wont solve everything I know but could be useful.

Re: Augmenting the stash: Pesto etc.

Pesto is my latest next big thing DAMMIT! I had opened 2 jars of pesto on 13 and 15 May: 1 red, 1 Green In just 13 days, both had LOTS of visible mould growing on the top and inside the lids. I was gobsmacked! I'm not one for putting opened jars in the fridge, but I never expected such quick decay....

Re: Augmenting the stash: Pesto etc.

I had a bit of bad luck with evaporated milk - cans leaked ( well past BB date) had similar issues with tinned fruit and tomato puree, lots of stuff is sort of off limits as a diabetic now. Aldi and Lidl do cheap and reasonable jars of pesto, asides from a quick google I'd say buy some and try it as...

Re: Augmenting the stash: Pesto etc.

All good points, and after many years I had a major sort out noticing how poorly my rotation has been I'm having a reset because not only that but it turns out clearly we don't ( or wont) eat what we store and as it turns out if we did we could have made health issues worse, too much processed and h...

Re: Cannabis for pain relief

Grow your own and bake cookies. You might put on weight with the munchies but you wont damage your lungs. Munchies.jpg It will be interesting to see how that case develops. I would be cautious of eating or drinking it, I knew someone who did that, the effects can take some time to come on, this per...

Re: Cannabis for pain relief

I'm well aware of the benefits for people with long term illnesses such as CFS, MS , EDS, etc I have known many people who used it, the downside is you are smoking and we all know that has big drawbacks, as for CBD oil and difficulties getting it on prescription? There are so many people out there w...
