    Great stuff Sandy - very helpful!! Many thanks indeed to your dedicated research.
    Thanks, but that dedicated research is just my form of play!! Strange way to have fun, I guess?

    I'd send you a batch, but I don't think it would survive the 3 weeks in transit!

    No the authorities closed the last abattoirs involved on hygiene grounds last year, the farmers aren't allowed to breed pigs without a contract with an abattoir to sell the meat. Catch 22.

    So the Greek Orthodox community in Istanbul and elsewhere can no longer eat pork, and they've always lived in Western Turkey, after all it was once ancient Greece.

    Well, I'd say at least you're spared bacon ice cream, Ian. That invention could surely only happen once in the world, and it already has...

    No bacon would be having an ill effect on me.

    As a biologist (dim distant past) I became well aware why Pork was deemed an unclean meat by Abrahamic religions, (basically Jews & Muslims).

    Many of the parasites that infect pigs can also infect humans, poorly cooked pork was dangerous, hot climates make matters worse so the best solution was don't eat it . Remember that pig hearts have been transplanted into humans on a temporary basis.

    But Greek culture had some roots & links to Celtic culture where pork was accepted.

    The Ice Cream here in Turkey (and Greece) is excellent, Algida Ice cream is actually the same company as Walls in the UK, but Walls are also sausage manufacturers & in the UK use a lot of pig fat in their cheaper ice creams, but not here in the Aegean/Mediterranean regions.

    I miss bacon & pork though, and Tmax & Delta films
