Gypsy Creams

Ah, potted beef. I can still taste the memory of it on buttered toast, and it’s probably no mistake that it’s being marketed here as a kids’ food. The tablecloth is a little something for Mum, even if she’s an army wife!

Mmmn Salmon spread sandwiches in soggy old Wonderloaf bread (very peculiar shade of white)

These are still around now an make meat paste, The lids on jars in those days were metal an the jar did not have a screw thread as you had to pierce the top to let the vacume escape, you then pushed the lid off with your thumbs. These lids were yellow as i have dug a few on an old tip.

I love Sutherlands potted beef! :o) NOMNOMNOM! I’ve never been able to find it down here though, the closest I can find is Shipphams Beef (in the tiny jars), the Princes stuff tastes like YUCK!

Yes Jam Shambles the Shipphams and Princes’ stuff does not seem to taste of anything,except chemicals.
but Asda do a nice own range with an Italian name I cant remember right now, very tasty with the more modern flavours of chilli and coronation chicken available as well.
