Mate, get it into ye. Don't listen to these melters, they don't even know the difference between soda bread and wheaten bread.

I know the difference, I just don’t care about it - one shite Irish bread is much the same as the next. Is this what you were arguing about when the spuds ran out? Pathetic.

That's where I was fearing the buttermilk diet would lead me.

I've got some leftover spaghetti and meatballs in the fridge. Might reheat them for lunch, but I haven't got any parmesan for them.

Never fear, a reasonable pecorino will do.

I had a feeling that'd be the case.

I've got some homemade garlic sauce, which thanks to its egg white and oil content looks worryingly like I've been refrigerating a pot of cum.

How do you stop it drying out, if you don't refrigerate it?

You probably won't be keeping that for too long due to the eggs, but if you are using uncooked garlic it has a low but real chance of giving you botulism if it isn't in acidic enough conditions. 

Back in the 80's there were  few cases from hazelnut yogurts as I remember.  Don't think I ever had a hazelnut yogurt though..

The same is broadly true of all non-acidic veg and meat.  It is pretty rare but it does happen to some unfortunates..

Commercial preparations either control the acidity, add preservatives or can under pressure and high temperature..

Here is a bit about it, there are many other articles on web though..

If you can't resist holding on to your cummy garlic sauce though, chance is you will be OK.

It also includes lemon juice. So that will sort that.

I'm pushing my luck with the age of it, given it has egg in it, as it is, but it's nearly gone and I tasted it first.

Is cum acidic? Why not fire a batch of that into the mix, just to be sure.

Been informed that I have pre-Gout symptoms. I have to change my diet which has become quite shit, although I don't do meat and rarely do dairy.

No more dipping a slice of bread into a pot of humous and almost emptying it and no more co-op chocolate trifle. Also, no more co-op cheese puffs.

I bought loads of buttermilk from Lidls today and it's not as nice as the stuff I usually buy. You might have to find your brand sir.

Loads of cherries though and they're right in season now.

(I have a gouty friend, who swears by them, I understand from him that normal gout medicine gives one rather extremely unpleasant side-effects, so cherries, get them down you.)

Mark Williams got Gout on a diet of kebabs and Haribo. Just watch yer purines.

I don't know about cherries but I've got a load of frozen dark cherries at home, might put them in the blender with a chocolate protein shake and make a Black Forest smoothie. Period's due and I've got that familiar I-could-eat-a-house feeling and think I should fill up on fruit.

I cook for necessity more than enjoyment, so my evening meal will consist of steak wraps- So that is onion, pepper, spinach, steak. If I'm feeling adventurous I'll do some rice and boil some peas and broccoli.

Thanks! I am going to eat a shed-load of cherries tonight.

It’s somewhere between milky butter and buttery milk.

But more seriously it’s an acidic dairy thing which I’ve only ever used for making soda bread (the acid reacts with bicarbonate of soda to make the dough rise, so you can swap out some lemon juice with regular milk), so either Barry is making soda bread or is mental and is actually looking forward to drinking rank, sour milk.

wow, sounds chemically, - the first description sounds a lot better, - that i could chug!

Buttermilk brings to mind John Fante and his character Bandini stealing some milk from the milkman and then being really annoyed that it was buttermilk. It was in his best novel Ask the Dust I think.

Nobody?

my minifridges have '15 litre' in their name. But you can only get 3 bottles of wine in them. Supposing you could stuff another two bottles upside down in there still only makes 5 x .75 = 3.75 litres, so how do they get to 15 litres?

found some unheralded 'chargrilled chicken pieces' in the back of fridge #2 - might stare at them for a bit before chucking them in the HazChem bin.

on the opposite topic: 'Anything not good not in your fridge at the mo?' - some celery put in the microwave to keep out the mice has turned into a brown jelly-like substance. Am I well on my way to a Nobel prize?

I've been making sandwiches like a madman this past couple of weeks. Everyone knows how to make a sandwich, but I'm trying to reach gourmet level. It's the cheapest way to replicate proper good restaurant fare, the sandwich.

I've done Crostini Al Tonnos (which is a ciabatta and tuna salad recipe my mum taught me, based on some Italian restaurant she liked in Tunbridge Wells once), nailed the perfect cheese and cucumber sandwich (salt the butter, pre-sliced cheddar, "julienne" the cucumbers), and I'm getting pretty good at replicating the Monte Cristo sandwiches from Disneyland. I like sandwiches that don't fall the fuck apart as soon as you bite into them, which is common with American sandwiches.

That's what my fridge has been full of. Sandwich ingredients. Tonight I'm trying to make a good, honest-to-Dickens French Dip, with a roast and au jus I'll cook myself in the Instant Pot. The Instant Pot, by the way, is something that everyone should own. It should come with every home. Get some chicken breasts or thighs, throw them in there with a jar of salsa, you've got restaurant quality Mexican shredded chicken in less than 20 minutes. It's unbelievable.

Is cum acidic? Why not fire a batch of that into the mix, just to be sure.

Quite the opposite, its alkaline with a pH of 7.2 to 8.

Got to get a pH below 4.5 to prevent the botulism, so cum isn't going to cut it no matter how much you blast in there.
