In the same way bottled water that's taken thousands of years to reach the surface have.
I will stick with the pies i know.
No sense of adventure!
It could have been the cooking was wrong.
I've heard that the Steak and Kidney ones are particularly vulnerable to insensitive preparation. Maybe they are a bit too advanced for a first attempt?
Fresh silkworm pupae were about the grossest thing I've ever eaten. Could the canned version be even worse?
Try and give an honest review.
Woohoo! First FB pie of the year consumed today in the caravan.
It was a difficult choice between the Steak & Kidney and the Chicken ......... but the S & K won out.
I find it pays to abstain for a while, as you can sometimes have too much of a good thing.
Now available for all our epicurean vegetarian friends.
All that veggie goodness and only a quid.
Would it still be vegetarian if they cut themself opening it?
@Dirk, two for one on the Vegetable Balti in the local B&M's today.
Plus a few others.
Need to try another, just to be certain.
Buy another two tomorrow, in the interests of fair research.
Having not eaten a Fray Bentos pie in my life I thought I should try one, but in the supermarket one caught my eye a steak and kidney pudding I haven't had one for a long time.
After reading the cooking instructions I thought numbnuts could do that so I bought it.
Today Sunday I prepared my two favourite vegetables brussels and cauliflower cheese to go with the pudding at least if the pudding is crap the vegetables won't be and I have lemon tart for dessert.
Well what can I say......not a lot, the nice fluffy suet crust that my mother made years ago was like wet cardboard, I had to leave half of it, the meat and gravy was not too bad with a pleasant taste.
Would I buy again at £1.50 it's good value if you didn't know how to cook, but as I do the answer has to be no, but I'll still give it 5/10 (that's only if I'm not ill during the night)
I might try a pie next week.
I am the same. the one i had was awfall, Am going to stick with Pukka pies, At least they are edible.
An admirable sense of adventure displayed there. It's that type of spirit that won us an empire.
