Fold or scrunch?


#1502

Make it yourself

I have a Victa Corvette (about 1 year old) which only starts first time if I’ve used it within the last couple of weeks.

It doesnt have a primer like my old mower, so two pulls gets it started for some reason.


#1504

Two!

So you’re pretty stuffed by the time you even start mowing.


#1505

Beat me to it.

That sounds like way to much hard work.

Would need a beer on a hot day to quench the thirst.


#1506

Go hunt the pig, kill it, etc?


#1507

Saw a method for Nitrate free curing the other day. Thinking about having a crack at it.

Could Victory Bacon everyday without worry then. :smirk:


#1508

Maybe she means find the pig, capture it, wine and dine it, get a cheap motel room, etc.

A man walked into his bedroom where his wife lay in bed, carrying a duck under his arm.
“This - this is the pig I’ve been screwing, sweetheart”!

“Ah - that’s not a pig, it’s a duck, you idiot”, said the wife.

“Hey”, said the man - “I wasn’t talking to you…”

I was gonna give that a like, but then I thought if Mrs D sees it I would have to deal with her.
At that point I wimped it.


#1511

Scon.

It’s scon.


#1512

You’d never say “Oh fk I got hit in the Sc-oh-n” …


#1513

Yeah but they got their win against us for the year and made us miss finals.

Their feral fans would be satisfied with the season now


#1514

What’s it did with? I’ve always run with the thought of it’s not cured with nitrates it’s just pork…


#1515

What if you had a st-ut-ter?


#1516

Just wait until its g-oh-n.


#1517

May well be right there. More kind of a “corned” Pork. They call it “Wet Cured”

I’m going to check up more on the details when I catch up with him & buy some next Market, ,… but it involved soaking in a high salt brine for a few days, … beetroot, (yes, Beetroot) and then a low & slow smoking “cure”.

Suspect the Beetroot may be involved to replace /reduce what I suspect would likely wind up being a Grey colour to it, as unlike using Celery it contains little to zero natural nitrate.

Proof will be in the eating.

Corned pork hey

Now now … :smirk:
