Re: What Preps are you doing this week? Part 6.

Vegetable oil is indeed usually rapeseed oil.

Usually the stuff that's labelled as rapeseed oil is cold pressed good stuff, keep that for dressings and use it the same as virgin olive oil, has a good flavour and it's a bit of a waste to cook with it.

Re: Torch

LED lenser are very good, I have one that I use for lamping.

For EDC I have a fake nightcore tube, I had a real one that stopped working after six months or so which annoyed me so I buy the fake ones now, they last the same amount of time but they're a fifth of the price.

Re: Sometimes

Powdered milk is one of those things that I just wont use if it gets too old.

Usually doesnt taste or smell bad but it can be pretty nasty if it's gone.

It's one of the only things that has ever made Steve1989mreinfo on YouTube ill, and he happily eats things from world war 2 rations.

Re: Re-purpose fish tanks?

Good series here, put some fish in one, use the fish to fertilise the plants and the plants to clean then fish water.

Re: Boil in the bags meals

I thought they were pretty tasty as they go, I've had a lot of prepared things in retort pouches over the years and they aren't half bad.

They needed something with them, I used to have rice with the chilli and instant mash with the other one I could get, can't remember what it was though.

Re: Boil in the bags meals

Used to be able to get those in poundland but they have stopped doing them now sadly. I quite like the chilli.

Re: Ration Challenge

Good job one can still use ones Aga and Le Creuset to cook it on, my Semillon says it will pair nicely with a Cabernet Sauvignon... :roll: I'm not sure the motorised rotisserie in my range will be a lot of use, but at least I'll be able to eat it off the good china. Regarding the vegetarian and veg...

Re: Spectacles

I have a pair of pince nez reading glasses in pretty much every one of my jacket or bag pockets, usually means that I have more than one pair with me at any given time. They don't cost much or take up much space but they do make me look like an extra from Poirot. Means I can read a menu though, I ne...

Re: 50 year old tinned Ox Tongue anyone???

I watched that the other day when he posted it. I have a pretty strong stomach but that was grim, actually worse than the whole chicken in a can video that he did... I am a fan of offal generally though, not tongues but I do like liver, I popped into waitrose on my way home and there was a lady on t...
