    Best ever pickles ?

    Hi terry and moorlander, Ok ,I'd love to claim this as my own but wife's mothers recipe, 1/shallots purchased on line from "Parrish farms" medium English shallots ,if these are medium glad I didn't go for large! £7.49 for 4kg method 1/ peel shallots and cover in brine ,1tbl spoon salt to 1 pint water cover bowl with a plate to ensure they stay fully submerged, for 24 hrs, drain but do not rinse! 2/ dry between tea towels when fully dry pack into jars tightly! 3/we use sarsons classic malt pickling vinegar heat gently in pan but do NOT! Boil, add sugar at a ratio of 7dessert spoons sugar to 1ltr of vinegar/ if you prefer a bit more kick add 3 dried red chillies and half tsp of mustard seeds, 4/ allow sweetened vinegar to cool fully then pour over onions ensuring they are completely submerged , 5/ wait around 6-7 weeks and that's it , as you say cold meats on Boxing Day bubble and squeak ect, tend to have ploughmans lunch strong black bomber cheddar crusty bread Saturday lunch drool! Good luck

  8. Thanks for that Al,as blade is not marked I have to say I don't know but based on what you've told me it could well be "martenistic "stainless steel ,hope this helps Perkin steel
  9. Hi, no not stainless steel as far as I can tell I passed a magnet over it and it attracts so possibly stainless steel combined with another? I'm no expert and I'm not sure to be honest cheer Dave .

    Puma knife box

    I'm keeping for now thanks it's not the rarest version but scarce as it has the" awl" I think it's called ? Which is spike hollowed out to allow stitching up carcass I guess, apparently the rare version has a Philips screw driver ,and most common is a corkscrew. this was purchased new in 1979 and is almost like new the previous owner had it wall mounted hence the lost case, your knife sounds nice,I also have a puma "waidblatt" which is a huge knife along same profile as your white hunter ,should you manage to find a spare box that would be great cheers Dave . ps.I tried to post pictures but file is to large
