    Ever wondered were the expression Talking Tripe came from?

    It is perhaps a Naval expression, the recipient of the lash or Cat o' nine-tails

    Never like Tripe and onions in milk, only fit for the pigs.
    But one day I was given a dish of pickled Tripe, I actually found it tasty.

    And now for something different.
    Go to South Australia and enjoy the 'Pie Floater'

    A meat pie in a bowl of thick green pear soup with tomato sauce on top.
    But they are a bit odd those Sand gropers.

    Then in NZ, Possum pie, and the skins sent to China, mixed with Lama wool to make some of the finest wool garments you will ever see.

    Sorry John don't fancy the dish much, don't mind the use of skins though. My son uses possum insoles in winter, apparently a small fortune! Have just emailed him to ask how much. Pity China has to come into the equation!

    Cannot remember what I paid but I do remember I also bought 2 Lamb Shanks and over a lb of Kidneys and got a wedge of change from a 20.00. Working my way through it nicely, the Kidneys are for Steak and kidney pies.
    I am sick of super market shopping decided to use local shops as much as possible. Maybe a bit more expensive but the difference in quality well worth the extra. Also saving on petrol as the nearest Supermarket was a 20 mile round trip.

    Having time out from seagoing, spent a year at AEI Rugby. I came across a local favourite, a Faggot not to be confused with the Yankee version. I had no idea what they were made with but very spicy, great with chips.

    Have looked them up 'am not so sure now. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Faggot_(food)

    Rather concerned for the health of poster #26, as it sounds like he has Hoof-and-Mouth disease because he states 'the nearest Supermarket was a 20 mile round trip'. Google shows ''Prenton, Birkenhead'' has seven outwith the local corner shops which are called McColl's and just while I was considering their reviews I noticed too the pretty place mats on the table showing what looks like the wee harbour town of Carnlough Co. Antrim. Tis' a small world indeed.

    Vic, it was me who paid 6, bought from a family butcher in Seaham. I visit them about once a month and stock up on his steak mince, beef sausage, pork and black pudding, takes some beating, only his haggis and black pudding are better elsewhere.. His prices are very reasonable and quality is first class.
    I also visit a butcher "mega shop" in Sedgefield, Co. Durham where you can buy lots of items not stocked in supermarkets and some other butchers e.g. liver - calfs', pigs or lambs, kidneys, hearts, trotters, tripe, saveloys, cheek which is very tasty, plate of beef (not seen it anywhere else), shoulder bacon (which i have never seen in a supermarket) very cheap compared with back bacon.
    I could go on but you would just get jealous.
