It has its many values and uses.
Today, unusually, I fancied a stilton (blue, of course) and pickled onion sandwich for lunch. Sorted the bread and cheese. But the pickled onion jar, despite being almost empty, defeated me. It also defeated my – formerly - one-touch jar opener, now my 'several touches, a few yanks and still it won't do it' jar opener. I tried my old trick of placing it upside down in very hot water (The pickled onion jar not t he electric opener
) but still the lid wouldn't budge. Reluctantly, I got the gherkins out instead.
And repeated the whole process. Mr Universe had been at them too :roll:
I really didn't want the sweetness of chutney so, in desperation, I used capers. I don't think I'll do that again. Fine in a stew or fish pie but tasting only of salt in a sarnie. Let's hope I have better luck with tonight's pasta.
I'm OK with beetroot, lime pickle and jam but anything that he likes.....
Time to get a new jar opener.
