Then came the question what do you call the wee bits of batter that get separated from the fish (red arrow)

I'm a Southerner and have always called them "scraps"

The Mrs. is from Yorkshire and knows them as "Bits"

:dunno: anyone ? Scraps or Bits or something else ??

"Batter bits" we always call them. We're both from the West Midlands originally.
Looks like good grub! :thumbright:

Hi,

I agree totally with Mrs wine~o; definitely "bits". :huray:

It must be two years ago Bron and I bought fish and chips from a chippy which was a one off on the way home; we called in at "Friendly Fisheries" in Sowerby Bridge; I was the only customer in the shop and waited ages until they were ready then we ate them in the car; these without doubt were the worst ever fish and chips; they were running with oil in fact I thought I could have given the car an oil change; we've not bought fish and chips from a chippy since. :pukeleft:

Your wife is looking after you wine~o and the fish and chips with mushy peas sure looks good enough to eat but then Mrs wine~o comes from Yorkshire. :huray:

Kind regards, Col.

NAw - scraps. Always.

Lovely sight there wine~o - I'm well impressed and gagging by equal measure (today is a fasting day for me :cb ).

Steak tomorrow though but with this pictorial encouragement it's fish'n'chips Friday for sure :thumbright:

Looks well that wine~o, did you opted for beer batter? I'm Yorkshire and have heard both terms but it's scraps for me, guess that's globalisation for you!

Just to be clear Col, I do the cooking... :mrgreen:

Actually a well chilled dry cider (and cold water) goes in to make the batter mix, I find the cider adds a lightness to the batter.

also about 1/2 teaspoon of schwartz pilau rice seasoning. which adds a little something.

As said as Yorkshire they are "Bits" but other places "Scraps", and in other spots, nothing, they throw them away. Best fish and chips were at Emley and Hinchliffe Mill, why? they were cooked in dripping and more important the ranges were wood fired, and this was in the 80s so not that long ago.

Well said wine~o; sounds like a real Yorkshire lass who's got you nicely sorted. :huray:

Yes proper fish and chips Nos the Yorkshire way cooked in good old dripping; I wouldn't be surprised if dripping was now outlawed under health and safety regulations as being bad to our health?

Bron cooks our fish and chips in the oven which I believe is the healthier way?

Kind regards, Col.
