Emergency!!!!!!!!

Postby ed » Thu Feb 08, 2018 8:52 pm

LONDON — British shoppers began noticing in recent weeks that hummus prices were up significantly.

Fuck 'em.

The cause: a drought thousands of miles away.
Eat shit and die

Insufficient rains in India have resulted in several years of poor harvests of chickpeas,

and I should care why exactly?
the main ingredient in hummus.

idiots
The country, by far the world’s largest producer of chickpeas,

and home of the most people who drink their own urine.
mostly grows the legume for domestic consumption. But worse-than-expected harvests mean that it has had to buy more chickpeas from growers elsewhere, putting pressure on supplies worldwide and driving up prices.

What the hell is this doing in the times?

Those limited supplies of chickpeas have combined with rising demand for hummus in Britain to send prices higher.

and how have they risen?
Average prices for the dish at supermarket are 12 percent higher than a year ago,

Jesus. What do the idiots over there do for a living, pick lettuce?

according to the trade magazine The Grocer and the research consultancy Brand View. That is significantly more than grocery price inflation of 3.6 percent, and overall inflation of 2.7 percent.

Ah ... the heirs to Sir Issac. 12>3.6>2.7
True genius.

It is the latest example of weather leading to poor harvests in one part of the world, and resulting in shortfalls and price rises at supermarkets far away. And it serves as a reminder of the complexity and fragility of the vast global system putting food on the plates of consumers around the world.


I know, I know ... lets call it "The Butterfly Effect". Wow.

Just wait until arugula goes up by 12 percent - that's when it gets to be a serious [high] societal problem.

Mashed up chickpeas. :Hungry2:

Not unlike the traditional English pease porridge cold, but with chickpeas.

Fuck you, you Kikey, Yankee, Itie Bastard! When we get our country back, we'll all be able to have fish&chips for tea on a Friday again!

With proper vinegar, not that poncy Balsamic rubbish.

And I've ordered a proper, Russian Jews' Harp, yours are crap.

So there, Big Nose.

Incidentally, balsamic vinegar is northern Italian.

Might as well be Swiss or Austrian.

Very likely my Italian grandparents never even heard of the stuff.

Hold on, what kind of vinegar should I be using? Here I was thinking I was being proper about it by not covering it in ketchup or tartar sauce and going ahead with the Balsamic.

I reserve the right to put ketchup on anything I damn well please, but I usually like to try the "right" way to have a food, because often they're on to something.

Malt vinegar. And plenty of it.
