Patons 3ply equivalent

I found a ball of Patons Fairytale 3 ply in a box and started using it. Now I'd like to add to it and find that it's no longer available. What would be the nearest equivalent by any well-know brand?

Re: Microwaving

In the middle to cook evenly, so I thought.

Microwaving

I recently bought a Sainsbury's digital microwave and when I've tried making a small cake in a cup or an egg in a microwaveable eggcup, they remain uncooked at the bottom, though fully cooked otherwise. If I cook them longer, the larger part will be overdone. It's been ages since I last used a micro...

Bay and Olive

Will my potted bay and olive trees be able to withstand the winter outdoors? I could put them in a shed or cover them with something but I don't have a greenhouse.

Further annoyance

Last year, SERBIA issued a series of stamps commemorating BRITISH HEROINES of WW1 in Serbia, so grateful are they still to the help they received. BTW, a Serb official during the war said something along the lines that, no wonder GB was such a great country with such women. What stamps (during this ...

Training course content

I'd like to know what the contents are of the CIEH Level 1 Award in Food Safety Awareness in Catering to National Industry Standards. The information I've come across so far only shows the syllabus of the course and I'd like to know exactly what someone will have learned from having done it. Does an...

Green potatoes

I kept some potatoes in a carrier bag that I thought would keep out the light, but the potatoes are going green. If I put them somewhere really dark, will the greenness go away?

Fridge freezer

My Bush fridge freezer is a couple of years old and there is ice build up on the ceiling of the freezer. What is the best way to remove it. It turns out that it isn't a brand anymore, just a name that gets stuck on by Argos onto a cheaply produced item. the model number is bsff50144w if that's of an...

Re: Manuring

Re: Striking blackcurrant cuttings

Yesterday, I decide to browse through a Constance Spry recipe book that I bought... last year. Blackcurrant leaves are mentioned in a couple of the recipes. On dealing with the bushes I never noticed anything special about them, but it seems that they have some sort of flavour that makes them worth ...

Re: Striking blackcurrant cuttings

Is there a way you can dry the currants then sell online? The leaves are edible, btw, you could use them instead of vine leaves if you like dolmas. Has anyone used them as a herbal tea? I know raspberry leaves can be used like that.

Re: Rusty bike

Hurrah! Someone did it for me, interestingly, using aluminium foil scrunched up, just on the unpainted areas. It worked a treat.

Re: Swiss cheese plant

Is there a way to encourage a swiss cheese or philodendron to grow faster than simply watering and feeding with commercial plant food? The philodendron was huge but unruly and on trimming, I cut the wrong stem.

Dogs in news

Another attack by a dog owned by a certain type of owner is referred to as a bull-terrier "type" dog - why don't they report accurately then and simply call it a mongrel - what a difference that would make! It's high time they came up with a name for this type of mongrel owned by this type...
