I don't know about you British...

Maybe i'm just closed-minded, but I don't think I'd like to eat that..

I love my spotted dick!

joe said...

So Sans, I know you're Scottish, not British, but you probably know what spotted dick is. What is it. Please tell me it's not what Pete thinks it is..

It's a desert sponge pudding, made with golden syrup, suet and raisins. Best served hot with custard. Yum!

Why, whatever does Pete think it is?

joe said...

Suet?? No way.

I thought suet was bird food!I am not sure what sponge pudding is either. Maybe I just live a sheltered life!

joe said...

I thought it was bird food too.

No, no, I know exactly what Spotted Dick is.( I just meant it's a great gag! ) My Nan used to make THE best Spotted Dick in the East End. It's one of the stodgy, incredibly bad for you foods that helped us brits win the war, by jove!If you guys have never had it, you ain't lived.
A few years back, the PC bridge tried to get it renamed as Spotted Dog. My Nan was having none of it...

And you didn't mind eating suet? I can't seem to get past that..

The best flour tortillas are the ones made with lard. If you like those, suet is not that big of a leap! *grins*

joe said...

I can't seem to get past that, either..
