”why can't they give it a shake to spread the sauce”.

I think its because they offer all that stuff for a fiver :)

 Not sure if it is galvanised?

Recently I was going to use some old galvanised fence posts in a fire set-up but then read something about it releasing toxic zinc fumes. That said, I’m sure I have seen galvanised bbq buckets....

Anyway I’m no expert on the subject but wanted to mention it just in case.

told to make changes to my diet that excluded as much salt and processed meat as possible. 

I think that's a great move. :)

If someone is on a tight food budget, the first stuff to get rid of is processed/prepared food. It's sooo expensive for what you get. e.g.  Cod fish fingers cost somewhere £7-10/kg. Ready meals work out at more than £10/Kg. Chicken breast starts to look "cheap" at around £5/Kg.

"have you moved to a more vegatarian diet by choice/unconsciously?"


I've done my bit in different ways:

- Chosen not to have children, so less drain on limited world resources.
- 85% of my heating is from managed forests, so carbon neutral. House is also very well insulated.
- We have chosen not to fly anywhere on holiday for many years.

I will continue to eat meat.  :)

Interesting stuff.

I recently did a similar calculation for processing apples through a steam juicer. It cost next to nothing.

Heating, hot water and sauna stoves are the electricity guzzlers. Everything else just isn’t worth worrying about.

Curry Base Chat / Re: Evaportated milk

If you, or someone, has chance to cook two identical bases, one with evaporated milk and one without, then that would be the way to measure the difference in performance

Lets talk Curry / Re: Curry with orange / tangerine.

Have never heard of a that name and an internet search didn’t throw anything up.

I think it’s an uphill battle to recreate a match for any favourite dish from a particular restaurant, even if it’s one of the more common dishes. There’s just so much scope for using different ingredients, in different quantities and with different techniques.

I would be tempted to forget about trying to recreate a particular dish and just create a new dish, with orange in the flavour profile. Maybe take a jalfrezi recipe and try different quantities of orange zest, juice and maybe a couple of spoons of marmalade?

Phil, Please forgive me if I don’t. It takes too much time. If you take that as an indication that my points are groundless, that’s perfectly ok. It’s all the same to me.  :)

If you have spare time, you can always look for some yourself. Maybe worth trying different search engines, as some search engine algorithms may prioritise some results and sources.

I feel bad to leave the debate, again.. but there are three outcomes in these “internet discussion” situations:

1. The other person one is debating has pre-conceived opinions that can never be changed.
2. The other person realises that everything they believed before might not be totally true and gets angry, defensive, or worse.
3.  The other person realises that everything they believed in before might not be totally true and sends you 100£ as thanks.

Whatever the result, I can afford my own beer this weekend. Enjoy yours :)

Phil, there is a huge amount of peer reviewed stuff out there that questions the causes of CC.

But you will never see it in publications like Nature, because it doesn’t fit their agenda.

And that is my point. Most people are either too stupid, or too lazy, or just too busy to dig deeply in to this subject. They take “trusted” sources like BBC, The Guardian, SkyNews, DW, Le Monde, TWP, etc. At face value and base their own opinions on those sources.

I’ll step out of the thread now. Not because I don’t find the debate interesting, but i’m Just too busy :(
