Tripe


Tripe on sale in Ashton's Phoenix Market Hall, on R G Fish's stall. The stall also sells cowheel, Bury black puddings, savoury ducks and a range of delicious-looking pies.

    Sam's Dad is a big tripe fan, I shall tell him about this place. When he worked in London he had to pay £15 per pound in Harrods as no where else sold it!

  4. I may be mistaken but I think there was a really good tripe shop on Henrietta St. not far down from the railway bridge at Albemarle Terrace and the outdoor licence shop on the corner. I used to love "trotters" and I wish I could remember the name of the kind of yellowish slices of some kind of potted stuff they sold. Darned if I can remember though! We also had a UCP shop just down from us on Ashton Old Road and often had tripe for a teatime meal! Dad liked tripe stew but I wasn't fond of that. My very favourite was Savoury Ducks though - especially the ones we could get hot outside the greengrocers around bonfire night in Lower Openshaw. More good old days! LOL.

  8. Spinners, I think the tray at the front of the photograph contains "thick seam" not elder. Isn't elder the dense yellow stuff...I always thought it was from the udder?

  11. The first time I saw tripe in Australia was in the canteen where I worked. But it was tripe and onions...cooked in a sort of gravy. It was awful. When I told my colleagues that I preferred it "raw" they thought I was weird!
