I've not seen Branson pickle or salad cream over here (yet), maybe in larger international markets in Atlanta? British cheddar we can get!

We do have Colman's mustard powder too!

Mrs Growster's sister used to have to buy Paxo stuffing over here, and smuggle it in to the US...

Paxo - while not a sandwich condiment - is an additional must for roast pork or chicken!

Mrs Growster's parents ran a fabulous small pub in Rye, back in the 'sixties, and she would provide a 'Club Sandwich' for 2/6 (12.5p now)!

It was three slices of toast, filled with bacon, fried egg and tomato, and they went like hot cakes! When the pub was busy, she had to pop back into the kitchen to form the sandwich, and we all had to muck in serving drinks until she got back!

Ah - Paxo! I love it too and have fond memories of my mum doing it with roast chicken or pork. She used to make another stuffing with breadcrumbs, chopped thyme and parsley and bound it with a beaten egg. I din't know what it was called but I absolutely loved them.

Paxo - while not a sandwich condiment....

You've not lived until you've had a hot pork sandwich on fresh crusty white bread, with stuffing and gravy. I make the paxo wet and don't cook it. Then spread like soft cheese, add roughly shredded slow cooked pork shoulder, plenty of seasoning and a ladle of real gravy. Serve warm but not toasted  :tongue2:  :tongue2:

Note to self - put a lump of piggy on the shopping list.  ::)

Now THAT is a sandwich and a half!

Fabulous design, and just what we need for the pieces of pork we always freeze after a roast, as they always get left too long in the fridge...

We have a fabulous butcher (Andersons in Cranbrook), and his pork chops are enough for two meals each; they're so big!

Never even thought of making a paste out of Paxo!

Nice one, Lardy!

My two girls only ever asked for a 'just pickle sandwich', which was Branston, my Mum tried putting cheese in but that was moved to the side of the  plate, licked, and the rest of the sandwich eaten.   Anyone else have the nickname for Picallili as Baby's Nappy?

I was looking for something in the shop the other day for a customer and discovered we still sell Heinz Sandwich Spread - remember that?  I thought it had disappeared into the mists of time, but no  :lol:

I might invest in a jar just to see if it is the same.  We sell those little tubs of fresh sandwich fillers, but like everyone else’s, they are heavy on the mayo and while I like mayonnaise, I am not so keen on it being the main ingredient in my sandwich.  Sandwich spread was a lot lighter and more tangy in my dim and distant memories of it.

You can still get sandwich spread as OH sometimes has it with a tomato or something.

Wighty, I'm praying that nickname is based on appearance, __AND NOTHING ELSE!__  ???   :ohmy::nowink:

Even this morning, I discovered my jar of sandwich spread, while I was looking for the Vegemite!

It lasts for years, and was a staple for parties way back then...

Love it to bits!

Just a further observation...

I picked up a blue pack of Ryvita with quinoa and sesame the other day, and it's pretty good! It's very different from their green carton multi-seeded version, although we've been on that recipe for years!

Also by coincidence, I noticed a jar of peanut butter laced with Marmite*, and tried it by making a small quantity my own...

Has anyone else gone the whole hog and actually bought any yet?
