Horse meat? Remember when starling was on the menu?
OH, bless the dear sweet lady who, now at the age of 85 years, wrote in to the Grimsby Telegraph (Friday, February 8) in a letter that carried the headline “meat memories” in which she, after all these years, still remembers with horror that day when she found out that it was in fact horse meat being passed over the counter and not prime cut fillet English beef.
And here’s me thinking that after many years it was the young ones of today that are leading such a sheltered life, thus wrapped in cotton wool from all things that could harm their little grey cells and traumatise them well into an older age.
For where, may one ask, was Kathleen Outhwaite when the likes of starling or sparrow pie were on the menu and hedgehog was baked in clay and rook or crow stew was the delicacy of the week and the only part of a pig you couldn’t eat was the oink?
