A few years ago I ordered six little diatonic harmonicas from a US shop over the phone at three in the afternoon this end. I was utterly gobsmacked when they turned up at midday the next day by courier....

(They were unavailable this end but the US price was so much cheaper that, even after paying the postage and import duty, I paid no more for them than I would have in a shop here!)

Thank you, Raggytash, but not while the pandemic is still raging. I brought a DVD down to the post office the other day to send to France (don't tell my family: I'm not allowed in shops) and the clerk asked me what it was. When I told her, she shook her head and said "Sorry, we can't take it - only essentials can be sent at the moment."
Even in non-pandemic days, however, the post from England to Ireland is strangely dodgy. If I send a couple of rose cuttings to a friend in Cork I pop them in the postbox for the 5:30pm pickup, and he'll have them at 9am next morning. But I've sometimes waited weeks for books coming from England.

I like the canned kippered snacks (Brunswick kippered boneless herring fillets) but you can't eat them just anywhere. If I ate them at work at lunch I had to stand over the sink at the back of the room (our cavernous office in the basement used to be where various arts were performed to repair books, etc., so there was an industrial steel sink). Pull the ring and open the lid carefully (no splashing of oil!) then eat out of the can with a fork (don't get it on your face, fingers, or clothes). A hefty squirt of dish soap went into the empty can and it was washed in order break down the oil and remove it from the can and wash completely down the drain. Also wash the lid with dish soap, then take the whole can out and discard the recyclable tin in the recycling container on the next floor up in a large open area.

Sounds good to me. If I have a kipper I'll have a real one open like a big butterfly, not one of those pathetic jobs in a plastic bag with a knob of butter that you boil in the bag. That is not food. Due to the aroma (me)/stink (Mrs Steve) of the cooking fish, I'm obliged to cook and eat it outdoors. I have a big old frying pan and one of those ten-quid camping stoves that uses a butane canister. The kipper is done in butter for five minutes, then, all alone, I eat the lot, skin, bones, fins, the lot. My ancestors were probably seals. I even have to bring a bowl of washing-up water outside to clear up.

I have another recipe somewhere for a slightly posher version of mackerel pate that uses those fillets of smoked mackerel you can buy and some chopped-up gherkins, great for a starter if you get people round. I'll see if I can find it.

Nah ............... far better is to nip up the road to Fortune's Kipper House buy two or three kipper fillets. Put these into a food processor add a generous teaspoon of English mustard and a generous teaspoon of Horseradish sauce, a good grind of black pepper and a generous squeeze of lime juice and blend until smooth. Just before you remove it from the blender add a little cream to bind it. Chill before use!! :-)

Drain the mackerel well (two cans) and put into the jug of a hand-blender (or whatever you do to blend). Add one teaspoon of English mustard, one tablespoon of full-fat creme fraiche, a grinding of black pepper, the juice of a generous half a lemon and a *little* splash of Tabasco (or leave it out). Blitz well and whack it in the fridge. I find it tastes much better the day after I've made it. An option is to zest the lemon on top once you've put it into a nice bowl. More than enough there for two. We have it with buttered toast.

I use Morrison's (nearest supermarket) mackerel fillets in olive oil which are 125g. Two of them, well-drained. Definitely just plain mackerel in oil, no fancy tomatoey/chillified jobs! The easiest thing to get wrong is the lemon, usually by adding too much of it. I never add extra salt.

Quick diet this week, got a physical coming up and I like to game the system.

Yesterday lunch was some cuke slices with hummous. Dinner was a swordfish steak with butter and almonds. Day before dinner was broccoli and asparagus in chicken broth. Lunch was salad with tomato cuke crab almonds artichoke hearts. Today lunch will be a duck egg. Not sure about dinner, probably crab and asparagus soup, or a salad with a tin of smoked trout. Yeah, that. That will be lunch, actually, now that I have thought of it. And down to only 3 chocolate-covered almonds, or one dark chocolate almond butter cup, after the meal, from my usual handful. And I should really ramp up the Wii bowling.

Also today a new batch of snail butter will happen. Some will help in the crab and asparagus soup, in which I will skip the corn this time.

Kroger's Private Selection products are, as far as I have tested so far, very good, and quite reasonably priced. I'll have to look into that pizza. If you're dealing with clogged arteries you don't want to go exploring their ice cream selections, but some of those are (literally) to die for.

That lemon-steamed-baked thing does sound pretty awful.

I made a batch of oatmeal cookies last night that came out as good as they ever have. I like the crispy, not soft, and these were crunchy as ever. I added pecans (baked before adding to the mix) and raisins. They are very sweet, but what an amazing flavor. I gave some to the neighbors next door and I'll take some across the street tomorrow.

Today is the one day of the year when I make a dish with Pumpkin in it.

It is a Lamb Stew with Black Eyed Beans using the pumpkin normally left over from making a bonfire lantern.

It is very unusual for me in as much as I simmer the Lamb for an hour before adding anything else to skim off any fat or foam.

So simmer the lamb for an hour, skim add the Black eyed beans and continue cooking, add onion, garlic, tomato puree, thyme, a small splash of oil, mixed spice, black pepper, salt and hot pepper sauce, continue cooking and then add the diced Pumpkin.

I an led to believe this is an Africa dish in origin that in truth should use Mutton which is very difficult to obtain where I live. It has also worked very well with Goat but again I cannot source that were I live.

The pumkin makes a great carrier for the flavours of the other ingredients.

More steaming, this time using the Mehu-Liisa Finnish steam juicer to reduce 7 quarts of frozen strawberries to 3/4 gallon of clear juice and a quart of remaining solids. The house smells wonderful! Freezing the berries before steaming assures the most juice because the cells in the fruit are already ruptured from the cold. Jelly-making is on the schedule this week. I use some of it for gifts and send some to my children who love this.

I started making jelly when my teen-aged son complained about the "lumps" in the preserves I was buying. I made him help me that first time so he could see how jelly is achieved; we did both the steam juicing and the jelly making. He is in his late 20s now, and often surprises me in the things he was paying attention to in the kitchen, such as when he contacted me about how to roast a Thanksgiving turkey when he was 21 and living with friends in a house (after two years in a dorm). I wouldn't be surprised if he's making jelly for himself in his Seattle home. (Despite his protests that he didn't need to know how, just before he left for college I made him participate a couple of times in the making of "real" popped corn, oil in a pan with butter-flavor salt and learning how to let it pop just enough before taking off the heat. The constant jiggling and lifting of the pot is essential to prevent burning. This turns out to have been a wildly popular skill with his housemates over the years.)

I've steamed the second pie pumpkin (cut up into chunks first) and once this one is peeled and mashed I'll keep some of it in the fridge for baking this week. The remainder goes into the freezer.

I have a sweet potato to boil and I'll keep some of that mashed in the fridge also. My pumpkin bread recipe went from great to fabulous when I started adding some sweet potato to the pumpkin. I also use melted butter in stead of oil. I have a bunch of very small baking pans and these loaves are frozen for use later, but with the first batch I'll share with friends and neighbors. I was baking last spring and sharing, but then it got too hot. Now we're back to baking season and this bread with pecans and cut up dates is a great start.

Charmion, I think making yourself a batch of chicken soup will be a wonderful ceremony to start to reclaim the kitchen and your appetite. I made enough that it will last for a few days, and this is the soup that I started by putting all of the cut up but unpeeled vegetables in the Dutch oven in the oven and let them roast. Once the veggies had been in for a while I added a couple of chicken breasts with skin and bones into the pot in the oven and let the meat bake and the chicken fat add to the vegetable flavor.

Once the pot was back on the stovetop I took out the chicken and let it finish baking in the oven and in the pot added water and let it simmer for a while. before discarding all of the solid vegetables. I added the chicken bones and skin to the pot and it simmered a little more and the finished meat cooled and went into the fridge. I bottled the stock with all of the fat and waited a couple of days until I made the soup with a new batch of vegetables (onion, carrots, celery, potatoes sautéed in a little olive oil and several dollops of the retained chicken fat for flavor), a large cube of chicken bouillon (a good brand for the "value added" flavor) and at the end added the cubed chicken and the egg noodles.

It is one of my better batches. It wasn't like making soup from an entire bird carcass, but it came out just as strong.

The hot water unblocks the sinuses, the lemon and honey sooth the throat, the consequent feeling of relief is boosted by the alcohol. After three you'll feel MARVELLOUS.

I pick up rice for a couple of family members when I'm shopping at the Halal market in the university town where I used to work. I bought a bag this time after carefully avoiding the parboiled ones, only to have the recipient look up "super sela" and find it's the same thing, kind of, as parboiling. It's a way to cook ahead in the hull. He would like to exchange, but I think I'll donate that bag to the food bank and try again. Returning items in this time of COVID-19 is difficult.
