Well it depends what you base it on. Worth while?
For the fun of it etc etc etc yes.

But for taste and quality of product then no.
I can't see it making it better in any way so I'll not bother.

Now if your're talking gravy made from fresh beef stock with a teaspoon or two of marmite and a glass of stout....then your on a winner.

I'll have to check out the stock (standard) stuff.
If you have an industry site like this then it's gotta be worth checking out.

You should.

Large slice of crusty bread with loads of butter. Don't over load it at first, just a smeer.

Then try the mature cheddar route.
Also try it in gravy and as a thin rub on a roast beef.
I sent sudmonkey some last year in return for a bottle of pig sauce.

*shudders*

I've never had english food, but I remember the food in Ireland being absolutely awful. You guys eat some disgusting stuff

You know what sounds good? A nice batch of Mountain Oysters.

No.
We (I) eat good stuff, if you don't like it then that's not our(my) problem. Go grab a McDondalds. I'll stick with the Haggis nad Black pudding.

Just giving you a hard time.....no offense meant.

I've seen some pretty horrific food here - McDonalds is among the worst offenders!

Barbeque....nothing like a brisket that's been smoked all day!

Actually, when I did go to Ireland I really enjoyed the pudding. I was really surprised by that. It reminded me of stuffing on thanksgiving day.

I gotta say, I've had black pudding and I wasn't thrilled. Haggis was actually not bad, especially on chicken. Marmite took a bit, but I appreciate it now. Eating baked beans with breakfast was also a new one for a while, but now I can eat them anytime.

Edit: oh, and Coleman mustard is amazing
