    a preston delicacy. maybe delicacy is the wrong word... black peas boiled up with salt & pepper, served hot with vinegar. in a paper bag.

    They sell rowies in all the supermarkets I usually use in Edinburgh. I wonder how far south this stops being the norm? :D

    about edinburgh, i'd guess.

    Nah I'm sure Morrison's in Kelso had them when I lived there. Must be around the border. Where's @firky when you need him?

    Yes, unless your idea of fun is letting them rest in your mouth for .0001 of a second before spitting them into a gutter.

    I know you get them in Wooler (in the bakers anyway). You probably get them in Berwick too, which is further north than Kelso. Dog''s leg boundary line init.

    We now have an oat-based rowie to tempt us.

    The Banffshire Breakfast Buttery:

    http://local.stv.tv/aberdeen/news/1...ealthy-twist-on-the-traditional-rowie-recipe/

    Less fat and salt apparently but despite being distantly related to the Ross family, I have yet to try one.

    I may have to venture into darkest Banffshire soon to rectify this, or take my ma to their cafe in Inverurie to see if these have made it into Aberdeenshire. :)

    IMe, the further south you go the more sappy, flabby and floppy they get. A change in the recipe from lard to butter maybe?

    I think I may have been in that bakery in Wooler, more than once - up steps from the main road? With an eccentric old bastard of a pharmacist nearby, although he is probably long gone?

    Tsk. That's not very Scottish. Where's the fun in that?

    People use butter? :eek:

    That's almost as disturbing as the time I saw vegetarian lardy cake in Kent.

    Yes, some versions do. The not so good ones IMO.

    i note with christmas round the corner, all the mince pies are advertised as 'all butter' pastry. as if that's a good thing.

    Didn't used to be the norm afaik. I have noticed the ones in Aldi are supplied by a Kilmarnock company! :eek: And are suitable for veggies!!

    Moves are now afoot to get the Rowie awarded PFN (Protected Food Name) status, along with other great delicacies, so there will be no poor foreign imitations! :D
