Perfect!!!

Shit happens. The older you get, the more often shit happens. So you have to try not to give a shit even when you do. Because, if you give too many shits, you've created your own shit creek and there's no way out other than swimming through the shit. Oh, and fuck.

Spiced pickled eggs in beet vinegar. Will be perfect by Christmas.

Pickled mussels in chopped jalapeño and thyme vinegar. Just the job for Boxing Day hangovers.

Now, seeing as Hotarubi appears to think that South Eastern food is a healthy option, may I present one of De_Bunk's favourite delicacies? Jellied Eels. These could well be the main reason I have yet to visit him.

Snigger. DB's far to the South and East than Cleethorpes. I believe his love of jellied eels derived from his younger days in the East End of London.

It's about as South East as Stockport is South West. Unless North Lincolnshire has moved since the last time I visited.

Here, I give you Opies Pickled Walnuts, a seasonal delicacy which are hard to track down and thusly hoarded when I can find them.

They're delicious, (I shit you not), one of the finest pickles money can buy. Perfect on their own or sliced, a delightful addition to any meat sandwich. Opies vinegar is so good that I save it for reuse.

Charles Dickens mentioned them in The Pickwick Papers
Charles Dickens in his book The Pickwick Papers, published in 1836. In chapter 49 he writes,

However, there he lay, and I have heard my uncle say, many a time, that the man said who picked him up that he was smiling as merrily as if he had tumbled out for a treat, and that after they had bled him, the first faint glimmerings of returning animation, were his jumping up in bed, bursting out into a loud laugh, kissing the young woman who held the basin, and demanding a mutton chop and a pickled walnut. He was very fond of pickled walnuts, gentlemen. He said he always found that, taken without vinegar, they relished the beer.
Mind you, looking at the price you'd be paying, they'd better be some good friends you're buying for. Over here I can get them for around £2.50 a jar.

Cheap bastard ed can get them for $8.94 here. I don't know what the shipping and handling charge is but I hope it bankrupt him. Walmart has them for$21.63 but with free shipping.

Or cheap bastard ed can make his own.

Shemp, these delicacies are loved only by gourmands like yours truly and not generally purchased by the hoi polloi. If I'm lucky, the supermarkets have plenty of unsold stock after Christmas and flog them off for about a pound. I still have two jars left from last year's bulk purchase.

Yup ed, they're good. And you're paying over the odds. However , I would suggest you take your nuts with a mean gorgonzola and a robust port.

I'll be ordering from Fortnum and Mason. Quality for quality.

Oh Hell yes! My sadly deceased father used to buy a full round of the sweatiest mature stilton he could find at Christmas, dig a whole in the middle and soak it with Cockburn's Vintage port. Most excellent served on Ritz Crackers with a slice of pickled walnut and/or a pickled jalapeño. Probably why he never had any money for decent Christmas presents and may well be the reason I became an alcoholic.

### Re: The British Food for ed Thread

You know, Hotarubi, I recently dug over my garden as Mrs. C. fancied a kitchen garden. (A back-breaking task for a bloke with a slipped disk: left me unable to walk for three weeks but she-who-must-be-obeyed must be obeyed.) I've looked into purchasing a walnut tree and it seems that they'd grow well here. Trouble is they take five years to start producing nuts and I'm not sure I could be arsed picking and pickling them by the time I'm 60, (If I'm still capable), even though I'm far more tight-fisted than ed.

I'm sure their exquisite flavor and texture would be lost on my pedestrian taste buds like pearls before swine.

Laver is seaweed, right?

I don't know whether it's the same variety but Japanese nori is apparently a kind of laver:

If you ever had rolled sushi, or onigiri it was probably rolled in nori.

Tastes like a manky minge but it's highly nutritious.

Flies’ Cemetery

In parts of the UK, because of their appearance, fruit pastry slices with dried fruit inside, are referred to as a Flies’ Cemetery.
A cellarman's dread, Witness. The EU Health & Safety people used to insist that they were wiped out professionally by the likes of Rentokil. Institutional and governmental blackmail. Hot water, bleach and fly spray did the job for a fraction of the cost.

Shit happens. The older you get, the more often shit happens. So you have to try not to give a shit even when you do. Because, if you give too many shits, you've created your own shit creek and there's no way out other than swimming through the shit. Oh, and fuck.

FFS, is that a whelk? Even I can't stomach those rubbery fuckers.

I am, however, rather partial to Escargots.

I think not, whelk is (as per the Internet) Buccinum sp. while the picture is of a (peri)winkle, Littorina. But one never knows with common names…

Ah, winkles are a different matter. Delicious with a honey and mustard dip.

They're delicious, (I shit you not), one of the finest pickles money can buy. Perfect on their own or sliced, a delightful addition to any meat sandwich. Opies vinegar is so good that I save it for reuse.

Charles Dickens mentioned them in The Pickwick Papers
Charles Dickens in his book The Pickwick Papers, published in 1836. In chapter 49 he writes,

However, there he lay, and I have heard my uncle say, many a time, that the man said who picked him up that he was smiling as merrily as if he had tumbled out for a treat, and that after they had bled him, the first faint glimmerings of returning animation, were his jumping up in bed, bursting out into a loud laugh, kissing the young woman who held the basin, and demanding a mutton chop and a pickled walnut. He was very fond of pickled walnuts, gentlemen. He said he always found that, taken without vinegar, they relished the beer.
Mind you, looking at the price you'd be paying, they'd better be some good friends you're buying for. Over here I can get them for around £2.50 a jar.
Yup ed, they're good. And you're paying over the odds. However , I would suggest you take your nuts with a mean gorgonzola and a robust port.

I'll be ordering from Fortnum and Mason. Quality for quality.
I am informed that these things should be eaten with Stilton which is one of my favorite things in the iuniverse. I will re-assess tomorrow.
But I am watching you.

BTW ... where are the goddamn walnuts? These things look like pig balls. In that sense they are nuts I suppose.
