Today I got lost down a Wikipedia wormhole on apples, which led me to clicking on the Norfolk Biffin (how anyone wouldn’t click on that I don’t know). The Norfolk Biffin is a breed of apple, but also some sort of Dickensian Delicacy when slow cooked and squashed - which sounds just yummy.
Apparently in ‘A Christmas Carol’, Dickens writes about them as:
"Norfolk Biffins, squab and swarthy, setting off the yellow of oranges and lemons, and, in the great compactness of their juicy persons, urgently entreating and beseeching to be carried home in paper bags and eaten after dinner"
So Biffins, great name, great treat. Just don’t look for them on Urban Dictionary. I love the British language.
These are my current favourite things to eat. Which is weird, because they’re basically drinks coasters.
You should eat delicious things while you can still eat them, go to wonderful places while you still can.
