Re: Vacuum sealer

I managed to get a foodsaver from Lakeland in a sale but the cost of bags from them is nuts. I did manage to pick up the jar sealing attachments for both the regular and widemouth jars for literally a pittance compared to what they're selling for now when I last looked the price had gone up substan...

We had a morphy richards thing for about £20 years ago, it didn't last so we thought sod it and got one of these

Re: Brexit in October?

Totally agree. But , you know what? To quote the great Baz Lurman, “ The real problems are the ones that blindside you on a lazy Tuesday afternoon.” In my case , my dear wife’s cancer. That shit polarises your mind. The cast of the Beano that run this country needs a reality check. They also need t...

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...
