Wonderful book, the chapter on crushed nuts brought tears to my eyes

Actually, I haven't read the book; but it sounds like a hell of a good read. I think I'll check it out.

Struggling to source the seal flippers Eric - they don't have them at the Co-op! Sounds delicious -but crushed nuts are much easier to come by!

I don't think the Co-Op will have them ... just take a club and wander out onto what's left of the pack ice and get your own.

Re: home made cow heal pie

We moved to New Zealand and couldn't buy it. So we had to start from scratch.

Recipe:

Take one cow
Remove lower legs and discard the rest.
Boil for 1.30 hrs the whole 4 legs.
Remove hoves and skin.

Makes a hell of a mess in the kitchen so best to do it when the wife isn't around. Doesn't smell too good either so she tells me.

I have done this a couple of times now and I have more cow heel than Richard Branson.

I have a recipe for tongue but it is very similar.

Re: home made cow heal pie

I have just read through this thread and really enjoyed it. My favourite meal when I lived with my parents was Beef and Cow Heel. My dad used to make it and I liked it made the day before we ate it as it was so thick and sticky then.He always used shin beef.As a few of you said 'Sticks to your ribs'. My dad used to say that too. I have eaten tripe once of twice but not over keen. I loved Christmas though as dad always bought a tongue from Chadwicks in the market hall and cooked it himself. He would boil it and then put it in a basin with a plate on top and a heavy weight on top of the plate to press the meat down. I still treat myself to a
quarter of tongue now and again but it never tastes like the home cooked did. My dad died 13 yrs ago and I have never had cow heel pie since. My other half will not entertain it. Some people do not know what is good for them.

OX cheek is a very tasty bit of meat slow cooked just falls apart
done with mash and peas with onions and thick gravy
this will be my Sunday dinner

oh if you fancy trying it you can get ox or beef cheek from Tesco from thurs to sat
one cheek will be enough for 2 meals well worth a try
