Ducks take more than ten seconds in a microwave.
There is no opinion, however absurd, which men will not readily embrace as soon as they can be brought to the conviction that it is readily adopted.

Won't somebody think of the ducks?  :bawl:

I find they don't like being held under a tap then put in the oven...  :o:

I can't see how they'd mind going under a tap.  After all, it would just be water off a duck's back.  :)

Research, research and more research. Shere Khan can't give a figure for their sauces, so we can't try them. We did try the DR meat loaf on Sunday, which I thoroughly enjoyed, but cooked from frozen, it seemed to need an extra 20 minutes or so and it has about 1g per serving.  :cry: Sue's working out her own recipe based on their ingredient list (which has percentages).

I found mine cooked perfectly from frozen.  Well, it seemed like it to me anyway, but I'd never had one before, so I have nothing to compare it with.

I didn't like the link John posted about Shere Khan.  That, and the lack of quantities information, put me off a bit.

Yeah, but I'm still not convinced.  I think Glenn ordered some, didn't he?  I'll wait for his verdict first.  ;)

The Garlic Farm's tomato products actually come from:

where there's a bigger range available. Sampling order placed.  :)
