This time a major blow - no more Fray Bentos pies.

They're too big for the electric opener, and my arthritis is no longer up to a manual tin opener.

The end gets ever nigher!

"Woke up this morning from dreaming/puzzling why the FB tin defeats your opener. So I went to the pantry and looked at said pie-tin..."

That's forum dedication way beyond the expected. I believe that the FE can award an arbitrary award for such service as was the case with VOG last year.You must surely be on his PCA hero shortlist now...;)

Perhaps a suggestion to Fray Bentos and similar companies about fitting pull-rings to their tins might resolve the issue, and also provide a few free samples or vouchers?.

You could also mention the Disability Discrimination Act, and suggest their involved in that?.

I am the first to have recourse to the DDA when required, but I use it for more important things than a pie tin!

"I am awaiting delivery of half a dozen traditional mutton pies later this week, "

My traditional mutton pies arrived as expected.

Didn't think much of them so checked the ingredients - lamb and beef but no mutton.

Complained to the butcher who said that Scotch pies rarely contained mutton these days, which is true.

However, am I expecting too much wanting to see some mutton in a traditional mutton pie?

One assumes it's made to a traditional recipe, which would certainly specify mutton.

A Scotch pie is traditionally mutton, but as the butcher says lamb and beef is replacing mutton. But if I'm sold a pie described as a mutton pie, I would expect it to legally contain 12.5% mutton minimum. Or if the term mutton was a PGI status, I would expect it to have been made in Mutton.

Is there such a place as Mutton? If so is it in the same area as Jeff?
