I've been doing this about once a fortnight this winter, thanks to a large shoulder of pork I got cheap.

I use sour cream not half-fat ladyboy creme fraiche. You can use apple juice instead of cider. Apple juices+sour cream has the sourness-equivalence of this recipe's dry cider+creme fraiche.
I never could stand celery. Carrots works, but I prefer butter beans (lima beans over here, but from dried not tinned). The beans means the sauce thickens naturally in the slow cooker so you don't need the cornflour business, just bung the mustard in towards the end of the slow cook.
You can use bay leaf+ thyme instead of tarragon, which means you can bung the herbs in at the start also, thus meaning none of that saucemaking at the end, just use a slow cooker for 5-6 hours (mustard added with 1 hour to go, sour cream just before serving).

Sounds very tasty, but shouldn't you be cooking steak tonight?

Should it not be MrsF cooking Steak Today?:confused:

After all it is Steak and BJ day.:ok:

Strictly speaking, yes. However I don't mind sharing work - for example I drive to the pub, she drives back; I cook the steak, she does the rest.

Yup. Like the car share. I fill it, she drives it.

As a matter of interest [slight change of subject] what do you guys in Canada pay for a small pot [150mL] of Maple Syrup? Just seen 5.65 in the local Tesco. Outbloodyrageous.

Maple Syrple

Price does vary according to grade and where you get it and if there's shipping involved.

Quart Cdn$20.99

It can be found for less if no shipping is required.

Buy big - lasts almost forever.
