Shin beef

Boil ye up some lovely stewing beefe. Shinn is mighty goode. Let bubble softlie for halfe of ye hour.

Add a boiling fowle whych hast roamed free all itse mortal days. Also add ye, three or four fyne fat leeks. Leave all to stewe at a temperate heate for three hours or until ye fowle is soft and wont to fall off ye bone. Season most generouslie.

Cook a Leekie

Ten minutes before serving, and when all is cooked, remove ye olde leeks from the pot and cast out. Throwe in 3 fresh leeks, sliced fine, and a goodly handful of prunes, which ye have previously soaked in clear, sweete water.

Remove the fine boiled meats from ye broth, divide into goodly chunks, return to pot, and serve all with fine crusty breade. And may God preserve ye from the pox.

    I have been fretting about the pox lately, so your blessing is much appreciated.

    🙂


  2. Maybe you should call this the veg pox diaries?

    Cripes, you wait for days for Gastropunk to pull his finger out and do some posting – and then three come along at once.

    Know any good recipes that involve red wine and apple macinstoshs?

  4. gastropunk Says:

    the pox does not distinguish between rich and poor, great or humble. for yeah, it shall strike ye down even as ye sleepe. especiallie if ye have partook of ye Bernard Matthews paprika-flavoured turkey twizzlers…

  5. Kinson Says:

    Hmmm – so what exactly do they use for ‘paprika-flavouring’…. On second thoughts, I’d rather not know.


  6. According to the DOH the problem stemmed from the fact that they were using Hungarian paprika…as opposed to the fact that their poor stressed out chemically enchanced fowl hast certainly not ‘roamed free all itse mortal days’

    Hey Gastropunk – where are you? Did you get struck down after all, or are you lying there on the floor with Maths chick, all bloated from the consummation of one veg box too many?
    (I’d like to point out this is the first time I’ve become a desperate reader, and asked for a post. When I read “Julie & Julia” by Julie Powell, I thought those readers were a bit weird. But hey – here I am. No weirder than when I read that book.)

    We miss you, Gastropunk! Do hope the silence is indicative of your developing freelance career and nothing more sinister… in the meantime, how about a beautifully attractive organic vegetable on the front page – no offence, but that lump of raw meat doesn’t do much for us vegetarians!

  9. Henrietta Says:

    Have you left us? I’m sorry not to be getting lovely recipes for Purple Sprouting Broccoli and the like…

    Great to hear you are in the process of becoming the new Steve Jobs. We will wait until you are rich and free to undertake new veg adventures, then.
    Hope the good and abundant work is not depriving you of good and abundant food! (Man doesn’t live on apples alone!)
