You're safe its past its use by date   :o :o %) %)


'Load of auld b*ll*cks' as me da and da-in-law say. ( da-in-law a chef). Since all this EU crud came in, we waste more food that is well useable but because it has a date on it, its deemed not fit for human consumption if it goes past it. If it smells okay, it usually is. If it doesn't, its not.

If it smells okay, it usually is <ok>. If it doesn't, its not.

Totally agree. I think the safety factor is purely there to keep the lawyers at bay and to protect the stupid.

...mind you, the seven-years-past-its-sell-by-date Marmite that my Mum had was a bit stale.  :embarrassed:

When we had a holiday in Brittany the local PrisUnic sold chicken from named farms within ten miles of the shop. They were a bit small and stringy by Tesco's standards but by gum they did taste of something.
Wasn't HMS Quorn (Destroyer) sunk in the channel shortly after D-day?  - nearly all the crew were lost. I think one of the people on our church memorial list was lost on her.

They are actually members of the legume or "bean" family. Other members include the pea, the sweet pea, and the laburnum.

Hello TOBYKER

You were very lucky to find chickens like that in Brittany ................. It is a miracle!

It is not the ideal region to eat of the good chicken.

To find a good chicken it is necessary to buy him to a farmer to the market.
But Europe (Brussels) wants to remove these people there.

 ok2 :P ......

'In 1919, following the disruption of British Marmite imports after World War I and prior to the introduction of Vegemite, Callister's employer, the Australian company Fred Walker & Co., gave him the task of developing a spread from the used yeast being dumped by breweries. Callister had been hired by the chairman Fred Walker. Vegemite was registered as a trademark in Australia that same year. Callister used autolysis to break down the yeast cells from waste obtained from the Carlton & United brewery. Concentrating the clear liquid extract and blending with salt and celery and onion extracts formed a sticky black paste.

Fred Walker's company first created and sold Vegemite in 1922.
Following a nationwide competition with a prize of 50 (2010:$3,527) to find a name for the new spread, the name "Vegemite" was selected out of a hat by Fred Walker's daughter, Sheilah. The winners, local sisters Hilda and Laurel Armstrong (aged 18 and 20 at the time) of Albert Park, Victoria, were known as "The Vegemite Girls" for the rest of their long lives. Vegemite first appeared on the market in 1923 with advertising emphasising the value of Vegemite to children's health but failed to sell very well.[8] Faced with growing competition from Marmite, from 1928 to 1935 the product was renamed as "Parwill" to make use of the advertising slogan "Marmite but Parwill", a convoluted pun on the new name and that of its competitor; "If Ma [mother] might... then Pa [father] will." This attempt to expand market share was unsuccessful and the name was changed back to Vegemite; but did not recover lost market share
In 1925, Walker had established the Kraft Walker Cheese Co. as a joint venture company with J.L. Kraft & Bros to market processed cheese and, following the failure of Parwill, in 1935 he used the success of Kraft Walker Cheese to promote Vegemite. In a two-year campaign to promote sales, Vegemite was given away free with Kraft Walker cheese products (with a coupon redemption) and this was followed by poetry competitions with imported American Pontiac cars being offered as prizes.[9] Sales responded and in 1939 Vegemite was officially endorsed by the British Medical Association as a rich source of B vitamins. Rationed in Australia during World War II, Vegemite was included in Australian Army rations and by the late 1940s was used in nine out of ten Australian homes. In April 1984, a 115 gram jar of vegemite became the first product in Australia to be electronically scanned at a checkout
Vegemite is produced in Australia at Mondelez's Port Melbourne manufacturing facility which produces more than 22 million jars per year. Virtually unchanged from Callister's original recipe, Vegemite now far outsells Marmite and other similar spreads in Australia. The billionth jar of Vegemite was produced in October 2008

  As I recall it, and Edouard de Pomiane agrees, most ready-made stocks are made from hydrolised blood - and horrible.
