fantastic roasties).

"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.

A rare treat on bread or toast in a middle class home.

Pork dripping is better for that purpose in my opinion.

And of course we all had Marmite on it as well?
