The foodie channel.
I thought I'd start a new fred on food.
Whenever you find a nice treat or unexpected surprise when buying your food, groceries, meats or sweets... stick it here so we can all share each other's finds.

Up until a few years ago, I always bought Australian
"Buderim Ginger Marmalade".
I stopped buying it when it seemed to have lost its zing !
The Ginger content being only 16% probably accounts for its tame flavour.

Whilst shopping in IGA a few days ago, I found a Pommie brand of jams that I haven't seen before. Not cheap at seven bucks for a small jar but it's bloody yum with Lotsa Ginger.....52%
Highly recommended.

RE: The foodie channel.
I bought a jar of Buderim Ginger Marm in the last Woolies delivery!

7 bucks is a bit 'privileged' isn't it Tezza? Rolleyes

52% ginger is high caliber too. I use the Bud' ginger marm in some cooking, mostly in stuffing mix for chook.

While we're at it.

Recommendation for Betty Crocker Salted Caramel Cookie mix.
Piccy here https://www.woolworths.com.au/shop/produ...cookie-mix

Easy as to make, 80gms melted butter, one egg, and some stirring effort. Fantastic to eat. ... tip. wait til they come up on special, bit exy at full price.

RE: The foodie channel.
Yum !
Ta for the salted caramel tip Joycy.
I'll grab some tomorrow

Funny how salted caramel and chilli have found their way into our choccies in recent times...
but it works !
BTW....the Pommie ginger jam is "by appointment to Liz".

You don't see Buderims label claiming,
"by appointment to the right honourable member for Cook"
...oh chortle, chortle !1

RE: The foodie channel.
Buderim used to make a ginger & date spread that I loved ..... gone, like Red Skins, Chicos, Coon cheese, etc. Rolleyes

Now I’ve finished my astrology degree, who knows what the future holds?

RE: The foodie channel.
Forgot to mention it in last post, who else grew up with Melon and Ginger jam??

Whatever happened to that? It was pale green from memory so dunno what kind of melon it was. No idea of the brand either.

Maybe they used chokos?? and they just called it melon? It was before the food standards and advertising laws tightened up. My bet would be chokos, Nana could make a huge apple pie out of one Granny Smith apple and 3 big chokoes. And you couldn't taste the difference! She was a hell of a cook and knew a few tricks with the herbs and spices.

RE: The foodie channel.
i remember Melon and something jam back in the day. yep, it was good
it was in a tin back then.
Yep back then they actually used fruit, before that bastard John elliot took the fruit out of IXL jam to save money.
it was cheaper to increase the sugar content.
the average jam is crap these days

RE: The foodie channel.
Yes, it was in a can but Mum used to put it in a glass pot with a lid. We were a bit wary of leaving things in cans but she used butter dishes and such and I think she hated the sight of a can on the table. The first thing she'd clear off the table were sauce bottles, she hated them too.
Bit 'posh' was my Mum, but the rest of us weren't.

Dunno about that .........

Apart from the occasional packing box we had to negotiate here and there, I thought you were quite posh, in a viceregal way. Cool
