The 'stuff' you find in tins...

Just been in Tesco and I found some lovely stuff in there for the brave connoisseur, like;

Tinned Fried Onions!
Tinned Coleslaw.

Made my stomach churn.

are great for making hotdogs in a hurry. They taste just like the onions you get on hotdogs from the Fair.

"They taste just like the onions you get on hotdogs from the Fair."

Really? They're that bad?

Only joking PurplePenny, but I think I'll give them a miss.

If I can remember correctly ,back in the 60s whilst on a scheme in Germany, we swopped some of our 'compo rations' for some of the American rations. The huge tins containing whole cooked chickens were delicious, made our Meat&Veg look like prison rations!
Oh, and we never got fresh chilled bottled water delivered out on location - talk about roughing it!

I have seen canned Brussels Sprouts also canned spinach.

Both contained Green S and Tartrazine I suppose the counteract the grey colour they would have turned during the processing.

Sprouts, tinned or otherwise are wrong. Very wrong.

I remember the whole chickens in a tin. Two pound of jelly and a sparrow.

Mebbe so but it tasted 100% better then corned dog or M&V ;o)

I spent several summers camping on the Isles of Scilly with friends. The island we stayed on (Agnes) is joined to another island (Gugh) by a sandbar, over which you can walk at low tide. One year there were hald a dozen Army cadets camped on the other island, doing some kind of exercise, and they invited us across for dinner one night.

I clearly remember that everything came out of a tin - they even had matches and toilet paper in tins. We had the most delicious dinner, and I realised that tinned food can be really good if prepared with care and imagination.

Not just tinned stuff, but other factory produced foods mystify me. This evening we had a 'Monster' Steak and Kidney Crusty Pie (850g). Meat product 13%, but we are still wondering about the other 87% content of the pie. Doe's anyone really know or understands what all the extra ingredients are,that make up food products nowadays.
