    nothing annoys me more than people who say stuff like "are my sausages done yet", i don't fucking know, look at them, cut them in half, do they look edible? you want to put that in your mouth? well, yes, they're probably cooked then aren't they, ffs

    is this carrot off? well, look at it, smell it, tell me if you'd eat it, ffs people

    sorry for the rant, it right fucking irks me when people are incompetent with food. like people who will throw something away because it's past the best before date without even looking at it. loads of stuff keeps for donkeys years past the quoted date, I found some half finished bbq sauce in the cupboard at my parents house recently that "went off" 2 years ago but it was absolutely fine.

    also people that hoover up pennies. there's a thread for this sort of stuff somewhere, isn't there :teeth:

    I was recently at a mate's house the morning after the night before and started looking for sauces for breakie, there were fuckloads over 5 years past it, but the jewel in the crown was some spicy chilli BBE 1999. nice.

    When I was helping to move my stepdad out of his house in 1999 (or 2000?), we were clearing out his loft and found some beers he had from a holiday he'd taken with his biker club in the early 80s, 6 330ml tins of budweiser that were best before 1986.

    Definitely still drank them. They were rank.

    Let them sit for at least 15 minutes before running them under cold water.

    That is most certainly an eggcentric way of preparing them

    I know what it is. If you make them in a kettle you lose your steam pressure through the whistle thingy. You gotta fashion a plug or something for when you take them off the heat right after they boil. :domo:
