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? 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.

And in our very much working-class home too.
