    Default And Wedwow is no more, make your own

    PECKS
    Ingredients: Fish 67% (salmon, anchovies), water, wheat flour, salt, flavour, acidity regulator (330), colour (172). Redro is produced using only the freshest fish content. Each jar contains anchovies, mackerel, and pilchards and is high in protein and calcium.

    Here’s Carol’s Homemade Fish Paste (UK)

    This recipe is by Carol Gambale, who first shared it with other expats. She says it’s “just as nice as Pecks”:

    • 2 tins of sardines in oil or water
    • 1 tin anchovies in oil
    • 1-2 tablespoons tomato paste
    • Drain sardines and remove any tiny bones
    • Place in blender and blend till smooth, add anchovies including half of the oil – add tomato paste (I add a bit at a time) and blend till smooth. (Check and adjust with more tomato paste if necessary) – keep in fridge.

    Anchovy Paste

    This paste is heavy on the fish taste and very spreadable

    If I put those ingredients in my wife's blender she will kill me.

    But I am prepared to take the chance.

    Went to local PnP this morning.
    They were unaware of the fact that it is supposedly back.
    Maybe only selected stores?

    Seems as if it will be rolled out countrywide bit by bit. Only available in the Western Cape so far. The article states that Pick 'n Pay will be stocking their shelves countrywide over the next two weeks.

    I ate about half a bottle of Pecks for lunch

    Don't ask, needed something very salty.

    One bottle in the cupboard and buying another tomorrow.

    When I had Covid and no taste, this stuff on toast was just about all I could taste, and all I wanted!
