Checked out the junket in the local supermarket today. It IS Hansons
brand
but the pic on the pack is different to the one at the website I quoted.


Thanks. With Hansons having ceased production at the end of 2005, it
sounds like the suppliers to your supermarket are drawing from a
stockpile. The tablets should be good for at least 3 or 4 years I'd
say, anyway.


Well I made some up from the pack I had that predates bar codes and the
junket was delicious. Can't think why they'd go off in a sealed pack.

I'm going to experiment with an extract of thistle flowers as an
alternative source of the rennin enzyme. I'd try the nettles, except I
haven't seen any stinging nettles since I was a kid and accidently ran
into a patch of nettles on a farm when a dog chased me as I edged too
close
when admiring its newborn puppies! Do stinging nettles even grow wild
anywhere in Oz?


Yep. Want me to send you some?

Maybe I'll crosspost the results of my thistle investigation to a
survivalism group! :-)


Since most of those people don't appear to be able to cook and only appear
to be interested in guns and knives and other very "boy" things, I'll bet it
drops like a lead balloon. Lord knows how these so called survivalists ever
intend to survive if faced with a veggie garden of things like Jerusalum
Artichokes or Warrigul greens etc. They don't know much about any wild
foods except mushrooms and would starve if left with only their guns and
knives and bug out bags.

I expect that enzymes degrade with time and temperature.

Ah. Here I was thinking they'd be a group interested in surviving on just
cockroaches and thistles ("meat and one veg").

Now my Dad is growing European stinging nettles -- deliberately. They have
leaves up to the size of my hand and they do pack a punch. They are also high
in iron and vitamin C IIRC.


Just curious: where did he get his seeds from? Are the plants perennials
much the same as mint is, needing to be cut back each year?
