American-type Dill Pickles in London

I was going to suggest Polish shops in general, of which London now has a million.

You probably want to go for varieties labelled 'kiszone' (brine/natural fermentation) rather than the 'kwaszone' (vinegar pickled) you normally see alongside but it depends on your taste.

And most will have dill and other goodies inside. It is, after all, a product of eastern/Jewish immigration that 'American'-style pickled originated from!

Huge can of tomato paste

Thanks but I REALLY don't have much freezer space and the can is about 3kg. Even if I do freeze portions I still have to come up with creative ways of using it. So I'm really looking for ideas I can use the past in bulk for and not get bored - just had an idea for tomato fudge (crazy??)

Huge can of tomato paste

Hey

I find myself in possession of a huge can of tomato paste (not chopped or whole tomatoes) which once I open i'm going to have to use up. I don't have much freezer room so I'm looking for ideas that i can ideally can or jar and will last a while in the cupboard.

Will lots of paste work in place of whole tomatoes in a slow- cook recipe such as ragu or chutney or is there something else I could try?

Thanks!

Bacon Jam

It turns out that you CAN use gammon. And very tasty it was too :)

Bacon Jam

A bit of a late query to this question but I've just bought a joint of gammon and wondered if I could subtitute this (in slivers, grilled or even smoked) for the bacon - any thoughts??

Andalouse sauce (London)

Hi,

I lived in Belgium last year and got a taste for Andalouse Sauce (especially the Delhaize supermarket commercial stuff!)

Does anyone know of somewhere I can get it in London (I'm can't find trace of it anywhere) or get it online sent to the UK?

Many thanks!
