Re: Pork pies

Not cutting, Trying a new butcher. New abbatoir was as good as could be hoped for. And £22.60 to kill and process a pig, with hot dipping for hair removal strikes me as a bargain. And that includes the lab. testing for trichinella https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=&cad=rj...

Re: Ardmore surprise

We still have sad elders flowering here, despite other trees shedding leaves.
Never yet seen a ripened Elderberry here.
Every winter the blackbirds waste energy jumping up to eat green berries.
Prompts me to go out with Lard and other food.

Re: Old recipes.

I'm sure I read that it is good bait for Carp fishing?

Other than that, it is probably the most processed, fucked around with tinned meat sold for human consumption.
But if you like it, that is for you to consider, not me.

Re: T500 in pot still mode

Your preferred method is tops in my book If you intend many flavoured spirits, maybe get yourself a second lid and column for the still? While tipping your saddles out regularly may ensure that they are clean, it will be a chore. Running in Pot still mode should involve lower temps. than reflux mode...

Re: Old recipes.

Don't get me started on lard!
A fat from my childhood, and one that I can now home produce myself.
And I'm loving it.
From pigggy to plate, and I feed the piggy.

Re: Pork pies

I only started doing shortcrust pastry with all lard shortening this year, as my mum always did.
It works for sweet and savoury dishes for me.
It was a real blast from the past.
A treat in a quiche.
