take out your phone, price for 1Kg = price / weight in Kg

I can usually do the sums in my head but just saying a turkey costs £75 doesn't tell me what the kilo weight is it a 5kg Turkey or a 10kg or a 15 kg............

Probably need to pay a bout 60 baht for delivery. Order a few tins to make it worth while.

Apparently SPAM is hugely popular in Hawaii, nicknamed 'Hawaiian Steak'.  Even McDs have it on their menu.

 

(Probably, coupled with high prices, another reason not to visit Hawaii)

I had a bit of a yearning for some hot smoked salmon. Very nice with lightly pickled cucumber and beetroot with a good quality potato salad. Tops will have it, I reckoned, and sure enough they did at Pattaya's Central Festival food hall. Cost was 360 Baht, more than £9 for 1 piece of salmon. After the smelling salts brought me round I decided to take a pass on the salmon.

I have seen tinned corned beef at under 300 Baht a tin and, because of an endearing love for corned beef and piccallili butties, have sometimes yielded to temptation. Plenty of portions to be had from one tin, so can represent value for money.

And how much was the piccallili? 

 

 

Doesn't Yorkies make both Corned Beef and the aforementioned garnish? Well Eileen used to.

I dont own a factory in Argentina nor a tinning plant.

You must not be British.  My granny's recipe; make a salty curing brine with a little prague powder with pickling spices like mustard seed, allspice berries, coriander seeds, and peppercorns. Then you marinated a beef brisket in the brine, for 5 to 7 days. Once brined, you remove the brisket from the brine and simmer it in water with more pickling spices for several hours until tender.

I can assure you sir that the two are like Chalk & Cheese, absolutely no comparison, may I suggest you buy a tin, chill in the fridge for a few hours, cut some thick slices apply to buttered bread cover with HP or Daddies Brown sauce add the other buttered slice and eat, I think you will agree that the tinned version is superior in every way to that tatty imitation you have posted 😎

I had a steak that must have been 200 grams. 960 baht for it made me feel sick.

Gramps told me they did that during the blitz and later I did it on long distance sailboat races but never at home.  We always had corned brisket of beef for dinner and made hash the next morning for breakfast.
