Pan Yan Pickle, RIP...
« on: August 08, 2011, 20:21 »
This used to be a staple in the Household Growster  (very little sugar etc), and since it's gone, we've mourned the passing about every three months...

But I think I just may have found a substitute; a little lime pickle in an ordinary Own Brand sweet pickle pot, mixed well in...

Anyone got a better idea please?

I remember seeing it, but never tried it. I found THIS article whilst looking to see what it actually was. :)

Oooh I can taste it now! Didn't realise it was apple based though, I just remember a very tangy, spicy taste, with not too many "bits" in. Is rutabaga like swede?

My dad used to have a store of this stuff  :)  It got harder and harder to get though and my mum had to work hard to hunt it down in the days before Google  :)  My dad was in the army out in India, Pakistan and the Afghan border during the 30's I think it was and on returning home to Blighty found the food far too bland for his new palate and couldn't live without this stuff

Shame to see it gone  :(

We were talking about this in the pub on Friday as a young woman had heard of it but never seen or tried it. We shall be getting some for her to try when we meet up in the put this coming Friday.

Marvellous Argyllie! Apples it will be, as well, as they are so early this year, we're several weeks ahead - and so there are lots just waiting to be added!

CQ, Is that the basis of chicken tikka masala, which was an Anglicised Indian dish in some books?

Growster - Ideal Pickles were made by Heinz - they were a bit like a piccalilli except the sauce was brown and sweeter - really lovely with cold meats.

I do not think so Growster - I am fairly sure it was available all over the UK. Ideal milk - that brings back memories - poured over tinned fruit for desert.  :)
