Rancid butter

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...

whippits.. etc.

We shop at the new Morrisons in Doncaster.. i have a Dachound dog.. and also had a whippit dog they are amazing dogs...
We up here in Yorkshire know how to cook, were also thrifty too... So morrisons are a good deal for many people here..
We don't all eat Black pudding, we eat healthily.....
I love the hint were all black pudding eaters up ere in Yorkshire...

Rancid Butter

Hi James... 'down south' i lived there once.. and found most people don't cook at all... 'they all eat out!' must be because they don't know what to do with good products from Morrison s....

Please don't take this to heart just could resist this!!!!

Rancid butter

Never bought butter that has turned out to be rancid, and I'd take it back if I did! We always buy Kerrygold, 'cos it's Irish - and then sometimes what they call 'country butter' which, I think is a fermented butter - it's a bit cheesy, but very rich and creamy too - made by small Irish producers and available in my local Supervalu (an Irish supermarket chain that manages to keep a local aspect to its wares, I can buy duck eggs from the local producer in there).

In our local town we have the aforementioned Supervalu, a Centra (same chain, different name), a Tescos (never been in it) and a Lidl (my supermarket of choice both for value and quality, and Irish goods). We also have a proper greengrocers, a fishmongers, and about 5 different butchers, including a specialist pork butcher. Those are the shops I use as much as possible - independent retailers can only survive if we use them, so I do. I think we have a bakers too, but since I don't eat bread or cakes, I haven't been in there.

I've never been in a Morrisons, but only because I've never come across one. I'm not keen on Tescos from an ethical point of view, but they have the simplest/most reliable online ordering service, so I use them to buy food for my Dad - he phones me from the UK with a list, I do the online shop from Ireland, it gets delivered to him in the UK. Works for us!

Morrisons

All this 'I hate Morrisons' chat reminds me that many people I'm in contact with, who are obliged to use supermarkets, say that Morrisons are the best out of all of them for their meat. I have to agree with that.

Morrisons (Rancid butter)

Morrisons is generally fine for meat round my way and some excellent value pork often available. Sadly they don't stock much of their excellent 'dry aged' beef in our local store and never on the butcher counter.

Butter: The M&S Jersey is very nice and no hint of rancidity but the salt is low - 1.5% instead of a more usual 2.5 - 3%. Yesterday I bought some Morrisons Jersey 2.5% salt and that really is excellent if you like traditional British salt levels. Though there have been some health warnings about salt this weekend - it is suggested that salt might cause some horrid disease....I forget which ;)

Morrisons talk

I truly am shocked and disappointed at James's comments. I know he likes to shock but I never thought he was a bigot....until now.

Bigot

Good heavens, James couldn't be less like a bigot! What a strange thing to suggest. As many on here can attest from personal experience, he is immensely kind to those from all walks of life. I wouldn't usually a swerve for James, but given he is in hospital, or maybe newly released and recovering at home, I feel compelled to respond on his behalf.

Have you read his past comments on here with regards to Morrisons and'up north.' Sounded bigoted to me.That's how I can suggest such a thing.
I must admit I was shocked.

bigot

Yes I have read the comments, which is why I don't get the accusation of 'bigot'.

I have strongly negative opinions about some products and/or stores. I don't see how that makes me - or others who share my feelings - a bigot. For example, I personally can't abide McDonalds because of the generally unhealthy nature of their ingredients. Does that make me a bigot?

It's not at all the same as showing hatred or intolerance to an individual or group of people who are different to me...which is the most common use of the word 'bigot'.

I saw James' mention of the term 'down south' but must have missed his use of of the phrase 'Up-North'. In any case, what is wrong with that? I'm from 'down-south' and my father is from 'up-north'. It's a simple geographic fact. Both are phrases generally used in fun, by people who live in both areas. I can't see where the bigotry lies in using these terms??

Racid Butter

LOL. I think a lot of James' more outrageous comments are meant to be tongue in cheek. He knows he'll get a reaction and I think he rather likes to be a bit provocative. In fact, he's probably having a bit of a chortle at it all.

Next time I see him I might borrow a whippet, stick on a flat cap and force feed him white pudding and a pint of Theakstons!

What - James likes to be a bit provocative? You don't say, Saffy! Now that's a revelation.

But designed to shock or not, I still can't find anything remotely bigoted in the thread.

But do go ahead and force-feed James his Theakstons. He might even go for the flat cap if it doesn't mess up his gorgeous curls. ;)

David Beckham has recently taken to wearing a flat cap too. Very fetching it is on him, I must say. :)
