I have often regretted that I never took any photographs as momentos of past employers. This time I decided to make the effort and, on my last day at the warehouse of Messrs Damage & Sendit, slyly smuggled my camera into the building while everyone else was out at his tea break. Here I am mounted on a PPT or Powered Pallet Truck, used mainly for loading pallets onto the trailers of articulated lorries. They are great fun to use.
Damage & Sendit operate this warehouse for a well-known chain of stores ranging in size from village shops to sizeable supermarkets. Because the smaller stores have no unloading facilities and their deliveries have to be taken across the pavement and in through the front door of the shop, goods mostly go out in cages ...pallets being reserved for large stores with loading bays. The cages being assembled here were destined for stores at Thatcham and Tilehurst. The warehouse is refrigerated and divided into two chambers kept at slightly different temperatures. "Produce" (fruit, veg. and flowers) are on one side; "chill" (basically anything you would keep in a 'fridge) and meat are on the other. The orders are assembled heaviest-stuff-first to avoid damage to more delicate items. The cage directly above the forks of the PPT contains the beginning of a produce pick. Produce starts with potatoes and ends with mushrooms and flowers. On either side of it are cages containing the early part of a chill pick. Chill starts with fats and liquids and proceeds to eggs and cream cakes. Those blue and silver things made from spacesuit material are "shrouds" for keeping bananas at correct temperature during transit in refridgerated lorries.
The orange stickers on the cages are handwritten labels. Damage & Sendit's client are not wealthy, big-league players in the supermarket game and the warehouse is not over-provided with such modern conveniences as label-printing machines. Personally I was always glad of this as I enjoy any activity that involves making marks on a blank surface with some kind of writing implement. My labelling was famous for its beauty and legibility. Others were not so conscientious. Anyone who doubts the decline of handwriting, education and literacy need only look at some of the elaborately awful labelling to be found here. I forgive the difficulty of Poles or Kurds with such placenames as Penrhiwceiber or Ynysyddu, but there is no excuse for a native-born Briton who writes "Bercon" for Brecon, or "Western Ho" instead of Westward Ho!".
My psychedelic Lemon Curd
Fruit curd is a dessert spread and topping usually made with lemon, lime, orange or raspberry. The basic ingredients are beaten egg yolks, sugar, fruit juice and zest which are gently cooked together until thick and then allowed to cool, forming a soft, smooth, intensely-flavored spread. Some recipes also include egg whites and/or butter.
In late 19th and early 20th century England, home-made lemon curd was traditionally served with bread or scones at afternoon tea as an alternative to jam, and as a filling for cakes, small pastries and tarts. Homemade lemon curd was usually made in relatively small amounts as it did not keep as well as jam. In more modern times larger quantities are feasible because of the use of refrigeration. Commercially manufactured curds often contain additional preservatives and thickening agents.
Modern commercially made curds are still a popular spread for bread, scones, toast or muffins. They can also be used as a flavoring for desserts or yogurt. Lemon-meringue pie, made with lemon curd and topped with meringue, has been a favorite dessert in Britain and the United States since the nineteenth century.
Curds are different from pie fillings or custards in that they contain a higher proportion of juice and zest, which gives them a more intense flavor. Also, curds containing butter have a smoother and creamier texture than both pie fillings and custards; both contain little or no butter and use cornstarch or flour for thickening. Additionally, unlike custards, curds are not usually eaten on their own.
Other flavor variations also exist using citrus fruits such as limes and tangerines, passion fruit, mangoes, and berries such as cranberries or blackberries. Hundreds of commercial variations are sold globally.
