The swingers? From memory that was a work colleague of his rather than a friend.

No, he's a good workmate who I semi-regularly socialise with outside of work.  There have been no fuck parties since December 2019.

^ That Bouillon is mostly salt anyway; you can get a much better version with a greater proportion of dried vegetable powder in your local Polski Sklep (or Lidl occasionally).

See if you can wean 'em onto Marigold Yeast Flakes (or its Aldi equivalent) instead - I get through tons of this stuff: much tastier and packed with healthy chemicals. Mmmm. Chemicals.



Yea that stuff is the bizz

Because of Bisto shortages?

It's a key ingredient to any self respecting orgy.

Sounds good. Reminds me of my tendency to drink stock when I'm feeling stressed. Then again I do have a sodium deficiency.

So do you just put it on stuff? I've got a tin in the cupboard for when I can't have dairy (Boxing Day problems) but I've not actually opened it because I don't know what to do with it.

Put some bisto best beef and onion on a cheese sandwich as a before bed snack, slipped a bit and thought I'd put way too much on but it was pretty mild, changed the flavour quite subtly without making it taste of gravy. Wasn't amazing, but wasn't remotely bad either, will need to experiment more.

Bet it goes well with something like corned beef and tomato.

When I have people over for drinks, I'll prepare a saucer of Bisto granules and halve some cherry tomatoes for people to dip into it.

Sometimes I pop a Knorr in my anus, as a sharpener.

Yep, you can just bung it on stuff, but my most common Oscar Scabs™ delivery methods are:

Creamy dips/condiments
2-6 heaped teaspoons mixed with 4-6 heaped tablespoons of mayonnaise or mayonnaise creme fraîche mix, salt, as much or as little garlic powder or minced fresh garlic as your significant other can bear on your breath and a squeeze of lemon juice - garlic mayo or Caesar dressing.
Add capers and/or diced gherkins and a hint of mustard to the above for tartar sauce.
Use plain yoghurt instead of mayonnaise, chop cucumber and mint (plus ginger and coriander if you like but I'm not arsed)  - raita.
For variety, I sometimes dial the garlic down a bit and slather with a generous dash of Colgin's Liquid Smoke for a smoky pizza crust dip, or crumble some Stilton in there to give crudités a proper footy waft.

Vinigrette
Just lob some in to your regular salad lubrication - vigorous shaking of the (lidded) container will break up the clumps, but of you're making it in a bowl you may want to crush/chop the flakes into a finer powder before adding.

Soups and sauces
Stir or blend in to home-made soups last of all prior to serving as temperatures over 70ºC greatly diminishes the flavour of Oscar Scabs™. With canned/tub soups, just sprinkle a bit on the top - job's a good 'un. I also add Oscar Scabs™ to white sauce/cheese sauce (including instant mac & cheese), sprinkle on lasagna or moussaka toppings 5 mins before serving. If you've made Indian or Thai curry that's ended up a bit spicier than your consumers can handle, Oscar Scabs™ and a touch of sugar can really take the edge off.

Popcorn, Oscar style
Home-popped, still warm, stir some scabs and maybe a bit of paprika in there. Movie night classic. Did some with garam masala and scabs which went nicely with a plain black lentil dal/daal/dahl (why is there no standard spelling for phonetic foreign grub - same applies to hummus/humus/houmous/houmos?).

I'm going to try this vegan feta recipe next week that includes scabs as an ingredient, though I'll probably replace the miso with tahini.

Partner uses it like substitute cheese.

Savoury, flaky, therefore onto stuff

It does seem quite intriguing.

I maintain, whether using veg/vegan substitutes or not, you've got beef, chicken and veg as the main stocks, and chicken is essentially the o-negative blood of stock, you can't switch the other ones around.

I’ve never done it but I did consider sprinkling some on my chips cos I’d read about chicken salt and how good it apparently is.
