    Ah, that'd be the traditional diet north of the border - everything battered!

    For me, I most remember Bully Beef Hash, usually with Baked beans - can you still get Bully Beef Hash?

    You must mean Corned Beef Hash? Definitely still on the menu in Northern England in our house at least. But with peas cos we're posh.

    In actual fact spam fritters are a UK wide "cuisine". They originated in the poor diet of WWII.

    It is NOT just a Scottish thing.

    Corned Beef Hash is commonly associated with America. It's thought to have been introduced to the UK during WWII as part of our poor diet over the course of the war .

    North of the border we make Stovies. It's a different thing.

    I am a total food geek (as I am about most things).

    Unbeatable. That was our mid-week treat along with a big glass of Dendelion & Burdock - truly fantastic. I couldn't even imagine eating it now, but back then it was a meal fit for a king.

    Pity shops stopped selling Dandelion and Burdock.

    Oh Mr Chris, how could you eat hash with peas. It has to be beans fella.

    Hey Gav, how about Ham/Spam, Egg and Chips but the chips have to be cooked in lard...! my favourite.

    Awesome!! There's hope for the future yet!

    That was such a part of our childhood, yet to this day I don't know anyone who actually knows what burdock is, except that it tastes great with.. er.. dandelion.

    Curiosity got the better of me in the end and I had to look it up. Apparently, it's an underground tuber of the greater burdock plant that's used as a vegetable and medicinal herb.

    Digging a little further, I was surprised to see it has a number of health benefits:(https://www.organicfacts.net/health-...s/burdock.html)
