Without a doubt a lot of the increase in the price of food is due to sheer profiteering by both producers and retailers. The public, as usual, are completely in the dark. :roll::roll:

A portion of fillet steak can cost 2 0r 3 quid; but liver and kidney at around 50p can provide a meal, neither are vegetables particularly expensive; so all round it can be cheaper to eat healthy food, providing an all round cheaper meal than junk alternatives - PROVIDING your prepared to spend time cooking it! :roll: Having said that: the current estimate on food price inflation is that it is around 15%; which puts the lie to the Government's claim to the level of inflation. :shock:

Obs you are obviously a man after my own heart and able to feed yourself well at modest cost. But there are hard pressed people out there who don't have the time to shop economically and they are the ones who have always been ripped off. 8)8)

Don't fancy brain but cooked a great liver and bacon casserole the other night which was increadibly cheap and tasty. As Observer says, buy cheap meat cuts, chuck them in a casserole for a few hours, freeze the remainder for quick, after work meals and you're laughing. It doesn't take long, just a bit of initial organisation and a decent sized freezer. Eat seasonally and locally and whatever you do don't line the pockets of the rip off supermarkets.
