I was delighted to discover, in a random Jewel Osco in the middle of nowhere in Illinois, a supermarket section entitled “British and Irish foods”. For a nation whose national dish is curry and whose culinary achievements are usually mocked, I was curious to see what on earth was in there.
Here are the results:
- Heinz beans
- Sarson’s vinegar
I was also tickled to note the price of said beans.
Although the pound may be weak right now, I think I’ll wait until I’m back in Blighty before I indulge with beans on toast.
