HELLO FORKERS!

I was just going to say 'pigs trotters'  yum, also proper pig's head brawn (a great favourite of Wonky's too).  Also known in Norfolk as Pork Cheese.

Rose hips- culinary varieties

Posted: 11/01/2016 at 17:18

Country children were sent out gathering the hips from R. canina (the wild dog rose of the hedgerows) during the war and afterwards to make rose hip syrup. 

Loads of them out there for free in late summer/early autumn

The hips of Rosa pimpinellifolia are small (think very small hard dry black currants) and of no culinary use that I can imagine - that being said they're gorgeous little roses, lovely in a small vase, and one of my favourites

Hmm MIL takes the D Mail. Today's edition obviously too late for the news about David B, but carries a very ill-timed piece of vitriol by his ex Angie. That's not going to do her image any favours at all. Think DB wins again!
