For many years I've used a particular butcher. I must have spent

Yesterday I asked for something I often buy: beef dripping (it makes
fantastic roasties).
"Don't keep it any more."
"Not many people wanted it." He shrugged and turned away.

Is butcher's dripping any better than the stuff you can buy at
supermarkets, e.g. "Britannia" brand?

It seems to be.

That's too bland for me. I used to
like home made beef dripping, in a pudding basin, with jelly underneath.
A rare treat on bread or toast in a middle class home.

Pork dripping is better for that purpose in my opinion.
