Ham hock is wonderful, and such a favourite that I asked for it for my birthday lunch this year. Mr. C. came up trumps.
Mary, how scrumptious!
I have yet to have the pleasure but I'm sure I would like it. Any chance there was applesauce on the side?
Hard not to like, Darlene. I'd happily enjoy it for my birthday, like Cornflower.Apple sauce crossed my mind. (Should be parsley sauce!) But, to be honest, I'm a bit apple-d out.
Boiled bacon - Wednesdays. You brought the smell right back.
It was Saturdays in our house, Lucille. I once visited a factory where as a sideline they made scents that they were used to stimulate memory - for old people, stroke patients etc - and, in a blind sniff, the most evocative scents for me proved to be bacon and tannin (the inside of our old teacosy!) It was as good as a time machine.
Oh lordy! Mary you have taken me right back to my early years on a Welsh hillside, boiled ham AND the inside of the teacosy! I used to put the cosy on my head on cold winter mornings - and get a telling off too.
Toffeeapple, I'm sure there must be some people who have glamorous memories of gardenias and Chanel No 5 ... but clearly not the two of us!
