Seems a good price for a fairly large jar of the stuff.

These are an acquired taste,very salty but nice to melt 3 or 4 into a pasta sauce for extra richness and they don't taste fishy.The price for what you get is excellent as the tins supermarkets sell,ie John West are a lot smaller in size.Sainsburys are selling 100gm jars for £2.39

Nice kilner jar too.

Bargain, lovely on home made pizza too!! Heat added

Awesome! May have to check them out. I love to put them on bruschetta.

Olives and anchovies - poisonous! Hot price for the afflicted though

Great price, believe it or now these go down a treat when roasted with lamb

Great for enhancing the flavour of soups too.

Can't resist eating them neat. Not too many though as they are salty as hell.

thx

Put them in storage for a thousand years, then sell them at auction.

Anyone know how long these will last after being opened? Anchovies are great in small quantities, but my gf is so paranoid it's a wonder anything makes it onto the plate - "Don't eat that! It's been open for 30 seconds!".

Mind you, I don't think the packaging helps - "Refrigerate after opening. Consume within 1 day". Woeful.

Anyone?

Wow! Those anchovies are packed in there like sardines!

Sounds about right to me — I can’t get them to last that long, sometimes.

I think you could split these into smaller quantities and freeze them, I have done that with tins of anchovies on the advice of Jamie Oliver in some of his recipes.

4-6 weeks if you cover them in oil

Freeze them! I stick the leftovers in a tin straight in the freezer.

I used to use anchovies a lot (reduced since the little man arrived). Whilst this is excellent value, it is very hard to use them all up before they go bad (and I think you can stretch to 8 weeks if you keep them in the fridge and keep utensils clean when getting them out).

They do taste good though, on a par with premium ones from main supermarkets.

these stored in brine? suppose could icecube\muffin tray them for storage

other tasty stuff this week is the soederland almond tarts - nice moist bakewell tartish (no jam iirc)
noblissima macaroons (frozen) pretty tasty indeed, expensive/small though - could eat the whole lot myself easily.

Good plan but chances are EBAYs final value fees will be in the region of 97% by then

yuk, the dogs may like them though

Dirty dirty dirty!

Smells like it too?

Nice kilner jar too.


OOOh watch out for the Kilner Policeman on here, I'm still recovering from mentioning Kilner in a garners Pickle deal(_;)

Excellent deal, thanks. Add to anything which turns out a little insipid. Gives a big taste kick to anything, and melts away to nothing, and no fishy flavour. Keep a supply of natural flavour enhances like anchovies, garlic, pancetta, parmesan, chilli powder (a tiny sprinkle livens up anything without being noticable) etc and you'll never have bland food again.

There's only 2 things that smell of anchovies, and one of those is anchovies.

None in my local store. Not even price marker. All the other items, like chutneys and olive oil was on the shelves though.
