I've had vegetable suet and find it perfectly acceptable.
I'm not a vegetarian but rarely eat meat.

Used Atora but it is not universally available and can be difficult to obtain.

It's OK KP, I don't restrict the diet of others. :wink:

Steve - never seen that stuff, but note it has palm oil, something I try to avoid due to forestry issues. Suspect the flour and pectin are there to make it look like suet when "raw".

According to things I browsed after your previous post, Adam, suet has a melting point around 120C, and while butter is (sort of) a viable alternative, it has a much lower melting point. Veggie suet is nearer that of suet re melting point.

A possible trick is to freeze butter, grate it, dust it with flour and then keep it frozen until needed. No promises that it will meet your needs, but it could be worth a try.

I think the idea behind the flour is more to slow down the palm oil, so the result isn't too greasy.

Just download Grindr; that should see you sorted. :P

LOL at the "Baconnaise". Is it kosher?

Me too... I'm like Steve in that I don't eat a lot of meat but I'd rather eat a bit rather than these alternatives. I bet they're full of nasty chemicals and things like hydrogenated fats which are deadly - I'll bet vegetable suet is lethal...

I eat a very natural diet with no additives as far as I can manage and never felt better. I eat butter rather than these fancy posh spreads as butter is natural - spreads are not.

I know exactly what goes into what I eat and that's how I like it...

:rofl2: :rofl2: At least the bread will be healthy!!!

I like the name 'Citdough' :-D I'll have to put some green food dye into it and then it'll look like an LHM loaf...

Just make some Laverbread. The ingredients are greenish, and it's the same colour as dirty LHM when baked.

A chip butty with it would be weird though. Must have a chip butty actually, not had one for years. Thanks.

Happy to see you keep the XM Jim. Never give up a car that suits your personality :lol:
.
I would have happily cut and shut that for you but for the distance between us.
Can I recommend a Portamig Welder? Had mine 7 years now......lovely machine and made here in UK from girders. I use the medium hobby gas bottles at £60 one off deposit and 30 quid to fill. It can sit there doing nowt and no rental to pay, but you have gas when you need it. Gave up Air Products and Boc as too expensive for small user. Happy welding.
