Heinz Frito

Haven't a clue what galangal is, or need to know what to use if you can't buy creme fraiche locally? We're sure our knowledgeable members will be able to point you in the right direction...

Heinz Frito

There are a few recipes I like to cook from Delia's 'How to cheat at cooking', but have struggled to buy the Heinz Frito, Tesco's have stopped stocking it!
Just wanted to let other people know that are having the same problem, that I have found them on Amazon! I ordered 12 jars for £12, free post and packing!!! Ordered Wed, came Sat!!! Bargain :-) x

You can make it yourself, very easily.

I never like the flavour of tomatoes with additions when bought in tins, jars or on commercial products.

Thanks for sharing that information.

I tend to agree with WC though of course a tin is convenient. These days I buy the really low cost own brand peeled tomatoes and chopped tomatoes. Seriously cheap and to my taste as good with the caveat that there is usually a bit of stalk. I make most of my tomato based sauces with a cheap can and (ashamed to admit it) dried herbs and spices to taste. Easy and inexpensive.

An excellent product. No longer supplied by Heinz UK, but at the Op states, a market place seller is doing it on amazon and its well worth it.

I'd have thought that people using the cheat book don't actually want to make their own!

I love to cook and I make most of my food from scratch, I am my happiest in the kitchen and spend hours cooking. But sometimes its nice to have tea on the table without too much effort after a busy shift at work. Creole prawns pg 40 is a particular favorite and takes 15mins. No ready meals needed! Made the West African groundnut stew last week pg 154, beautiful! I don't follow all the cheats, used fresh ginger and I personally wouldn't buy pre prepared veg, but each to their own.

Rather than go to the expense of ordering from Amazon why not do as I do and use an alternative, I buy a jar of Pizza topping from Asda which is very similar to Frito. It can be purchased in other supermarkets I'm sure. I used Frito when it was available and now I use this alternative and I honestly don't see the difference, oh, and it is cheaper too!

As i commented earlier I have been using the freezer to store any excess of flour I have for a while now. I started doing this after reading in my many baking books that it was a good way to store flour for any length of time to avoid getting grubs or other nasties there. I quote from Rose Levy Berenbaum's Bread Bible.....'.It is best to store flour and other grains in airtight containers or freeze them in freezer weight plastic bags. If the flour comes in a bag, leave it in the bag and place it in a freezer weight plastic bag. If stored airtight in the freezer, most grains will keep for up to 2 years.'
RLB is a very well respected author of baking books in the USA.
