okay I've heard of this, and a google search brought some punk band. So I'm going to the horse's mouth, in a manner of speaking. So tell me what exactly is Pickled Dick? and do you guys like eating it?



...if it's really good, perhaps some enterprising chap would export it to the states.

Heard of "Spotted Dick" and we pickle just about any vegeatablr including onions, cabbage and cauliflower............ but never heard of it myself? Maybe its a local dish to some area, ? Asked a chef of 30 years and he'd never heard of it............ closest he could come to was "Pickled Dills", small Gherkin like things?

bunnyassassin,
it may well be spotted dick, either way it contains the word 'dick' and it is eaten. so what is it?
Link Posted: 9/16/2005 5:53:26 AM EDT
285g (10oz) Self-Raising Flour
150g (5oz) Shredded Suet
150ml (¼ pint) Milk
110-160g (4-6oz) Currants or Raisins
85g (3oz) Castor Sugar
1 Lemon, zest only, finely grated
Pinch Salt

Mix all of the dry ingredients, including the grated lemon zest, together thoroughly
Add enough milk to produce a soft dough.
Turn out onto a floured surface.
Roll out the mixture to produce a roll approximately 15cm (6 in) long and 5cm (2 in) in diameter.
Prepare either a tea towel lightly dusted with flour, or sheet of kitchen foil or a double thickness of greaseproof paper, brushed with melted butter.
Wrap loosely but securely, leaving enough space for it to rise.
Tie or seal the ends.
Place in the steamer and cover tightly.

sounds quite tasty, although I don't know what currants or suet are. but what the hay, I'll take a slice.


....just occured to me, in Mexico they have a bread called Panocha, which is also the spanish word for pussy(female genitalia)...makes ya wonder.......

Currant: small dried grape: a small dark dried seedless grape originally from the Mediterranean, used in cooking

Suet: hard fat: a hard white fat found on the kidneys and loins of sheep and cattle, used in cooking and as a source of tallow

As for Panocha, "Beaver Bread" sounds better?........

Microsoft must have the definition wrong then cos I got it from Encarta (cool programme, especially the Google Earth thing for moving the globe).

I may try spotted dick, I may try beaver bread, however Hagus boiled in wee lamb's gut? nah you-all can keep that gem for yourselves.

Haggis is actually fairly tasty, so I am told, its a sheeps stomach stuffed with kidney, liver, leeks and barley................ The wife troughs it down like there's no tomorrow.

I, on the other hand, would gouge out both my eyes before I touched the shite!

Lava Bread anyone?

I've spent a lot of time in the Hebrides and the north of Scotland, and not many people I know up there actually like haggis.

I think it's a bit like sangria, a joke reserved for the tourists. no local would drink(eat) it.

Matt, the next time you're up here, I'll get the wife to knock you one up............ and then knock you about for saying such a thing!

You'll be telling me next that Nessy doesn't exist?............

Lava bread is just the same.
I dont know anyone who likes it and I've never tried it either. Just not had the inclination to eat seaweed.

Taffy

I googled but there almost no images/info about lava bread that would explain it easily

Put the loading bench in reach of the toilet, and it'd be the perfect place.
