I dunno, Dark Matter. Tastes terrible? Mrs P-K loves
the stuff and sits there with her favourite sarny...especially on her midnight rambles to the fridge and sculpts vast sarnies of pickled beetroot slices and lashings of salad cream dripping down her chin.
I have tried to reason with her. I really have tried. I have sung the praises of 'proper' mayonnaise. Real actual mayonnaise. Even brought her real Hellman's Mayonnaise back from the States.
All she says is "Yes but didn't you tell me that when you were a student you practically lived on salad cream sandwiches?"
Ah, fair cop. All too true I reply...you get a doorstop of the unhealthiest white bread you can find. Shovel loads of salad cream onto it. Top it with another unhealthy doorstop. That is it. Dribbles down your forearms a bit but...Absolutely brilliant.
Salad cream never stood a chance of reaching its 'sell by date' when I was on the scavenge and doesn't now when Mrs P-K is having one of her midnight snack attacks.
I still occasionally succumb and raid Mrs P-K's salad cream when she is out. Deja vu
never tasted so sweet!
Now just don't get me started on the shelf life of Piccalili....
