    LOL Brogan well I liked it. :)

    The big appeal for me was the strong garlic taste and I can't get that else where without wheat being in the sausage. (allergic to wheat). Like you said Sucuk is ground up animal and spices, no wheat.

    What about continental garlic sausage, does that have wheat in it?

    What's continental about these though?

    That sort of stuff with added water usually tastes like dog food. You have to be wary of anything that says "continental" anything on its label. It usually mean it's some god-awful crap made up of factory rejects that end up on a slice of something. Much better go for something that is actually chorizo, saucission, calzione or suchlike. If it just says "continental" or is something generic it's probably dreadful ultra-processed crap.

    What I meant was stuff that comes from the European continent, I was specifically thinking real German garlic sausage, which may or may not have wheat in it.? It tasted good though.

    Since developing allergies I now have to read every packet I buy. It staggers me just how many ingredients are in some stuff.

    It staggers me just how much of it I can't understand. It's got to the stage now if something looks really nice, I won't look at the ingredient list because I know I wouldn't buy it.

    You can't even trust a simple apple. Their seeds, although safe when ingested whole contain minute amounts of cyanide which become active when bit into. Better not feed apple seeds to your dog.

    That's interesting. If I save up lots of apple seeds, and grind them up in a crumble topping I can become the next mad serial murderer. No one will ever know.
    Oh, wait a minute.........
    :disappointed:

    From one site it appears that you would have to get at least 0.5 cups of apple seeds, grind them up and swallow immediately; if you delay the swallowing the cyanide gas disperses quickly. Your body can handle small doses quite quickly as well.

    Here is one site, other sites can also be used.

    I've started giving some thoughts towards securing tickets for Le Mans this year. I haven't been for several years and I was looking forward to sampling some of the local specialities such as rillettes and andouillettes, I remembered I was quite partial to the latter.

    Unfortunately I found myself googling them, and I now find myself a lot less keen now that I know what goes into them. Intestines and tripe and so on.

    Just goes to show, when it comes to sausages you're really better off no knowing what goes in them...

    That is my dinner for tonight. The only worrying thing in there, as far as I'm concerned is the quantity of fat :)

    Andouillette was once sampled by my husband. We were en route South through France, and stopped at a roadside truck stop. He decided that he had to have a real French speciality..
    Long story short, the Andouillette arrived, was cut into, the smell of pig poo was so shocking that those of us not eating it turned green. Hubby took a deep breath and ate a mouthful, turned very pale, and ate nothing else for 24 hours. He just kept saying that he could still taste it for hours.
    It was a countryside Andouillette, and not something from a Supermarket, maybe that makes a difference. But the intestine in the one we had was not cleaned out,

    When it comes to anything made with raw pork, chicken or offal, anything that smells like it's gone off... probably has.

    Having eaten Schweinshaxe in Germany I once opted for the pigs trotter in a French restaurant expecting something similar. What a mistake, it was just a boiled pigs foot, bones and all, with some shitty sauce. I ate it just to save face but it was disgusting.

    I've just tried Dulse seaweed. Supposedly the solution to a growing world population. Only problem is it tastes like super salty fish with the texture of toilet paper.

    I'll have the steak, thanks.

    I had a meat and potato pie for tea tonight. It was very nice.

    I've got a nice piece of rump steak in the fridge for tomorrow night.

    Greenlantern101 I think you're supposed to use it as a salt substitute, after very fine grinding. You' re not supposed to use as a meal?
