Where is Mr NBC when you need him?
I faced the annual Treacle Danger tonight as I popped the lid of the Black Treacle tin - best before June 2001 - ignoring the dire warnings not to even open an out of date tin and to dispose of it safely. Not so much as a hiss - still the tin is only half used so maybe by 2008 it will have started to react.
Christmas cake made - now 11 hours in the bottom oven of the Aga - should be lovely and moist!
(I know it should have been made bloody weeks ago but I've been busy - at least we have last years Xmas pudding to rejuvenate with spirits - that should be mature now. What do you mean "Best Before"?)
