Tins, Tins, Tins... [Nov. 8th, 2017|05:16 pm]
Tony Grist
Our new kettle has a shorter lead than the old one and accommodating it on the work top involved moving objects around and- because one thing leads to another- taking a long hard look at the store cupboard. So many tins- enough to fuel an Antarctic expedition or keep us going through the zombie apocalypse.

Do we want to take them all with us when we move?

I opened two tins of vegetable curry for lunch and a tin of ratatouille for supper.

Tinned curry always sounded so wrong tome.Is the taste any good?and other concerns .. made me go against the idea of tinned curry.

This wasn't at all bad. Much nicer than I was expecting.

That reminds me of my dad. He was a hoarder of tins of food. A lot of that came from his Great Depression background and when he'd see food staples on offer he'd buy loads of it whether my mother wanted or needed it and store it in the basement on shelves he built for the purpose. When he died and my mom had to go into a nursing home, I helped sort those shelves and there were tins of things that were past their use by date by over a decade and more in some cases...including things I remembered from my childhood.

I'm not quite sure why we've accumulated so many tins. I think it's a case of buying things we think we're going to use and then not using them and allowing them to get pushed to the back of the cupboard.

Do they have food banks in your area, which distribute excess food to those who need it?

Our local bank will take canned food twelve months its expiry date (except for baby food, and food supplements for the elderly, which must be discarded when expired).

Yes we do. We may well take some of our tins to one. Thanks for the suggestion.
