    A long handled, silicone edged spoon is in order perhaps, to get it as clean as possible.

    I will order some chia but I know exactly what Mrs JKM response will be.

    "What's this hippy :poop: then?" Shaking bag in bemused fashion.
    "Chia seeds my love, to make poohding with"
    "Are you turning into some kind of millennial or did your imaginary friends on the internet put you up to this?"

    Let her revel in that sense of superiority....
    .... meanwhile you have chocolate..

    Being a hooligan I have my coffee in the same pot in the morning for that 'washing up and mocha' dual-use ethic ..

    They are incredibly sweet. Full of artificial sweeteners.....I used to like it, but had too much and they started to impart a really chemically taste. They cut my sugar use down a lot though....went from 2 teaspoons, to 1/4 in each coffee (with considerable weight savings) Then, I discovered caramel and choc flavoured Stevia drops... been on those ever since in my outdoor drinks.
    Highlight of their use was some 'Rum Choffamel' I invented one night...Rum, Caramel, Baileys, Vodka, chocolate and coffee. Man, that was tasty.

    I think they (Gourmet drops) would be great in Ed's sh**ty gloop recipe.

    Think I’ll stick with me whole nut and call it a luxury item of consumable weight

    When I try this I am going to add some superfine dehydrated orange zest and use "Willie's" Coco, possibly with some additional 95% grated in.

    how much volume do you need? I have a few these tubs lying around, map for scale but I can measure volume if you think it'll be any use. It's not a big tub but *could* be a perfect size. 20190215_211815.jpg

    Around 200mlish I think craige....
    ...is the Skye Trail map included :D?

    Ah, it's 130ml to the brim :(

    You can certainly borrow it. I'll do it again at some point so will need it back.

    Is 440ml too big? The ice cream is a different flavour from what we get in Turkey but it looks to be the same container. We use them for coffee.

    Thanks for the offer...but I'll look through my local supermarket tub collection :D

    William - I'd have to make 3x the amount to fit that!

    Never bothered with tubs until I discovered you lot, you have a lot to answer for. Once spent 2 hours scouring Nottingham for some 28ml tubs, found them and was really pleased with myself. I live alone needless to say.

    Passes the shake--to-mix test well in a 250ml tub..

    @edh should the seeds be grated to get the nutrients out or we digest the seeds? Same as with flax
  23. edh

    They don't need to be grated - still get the nutrients.
    I tried milling them just to see if they made the pudding thicker, but there was no difference.

    If I keep on buying stuff I don’t eat because the pots the right size, I suspect I’ll be living alone as well...

    The family think I’ve gone a bit odd!

    It's the weighing of everything that used to raise eyebrows in this family.

    Since they've had to carry stuff they now 'get it' :)
