This is a question What Makes You Cry?

That bit in the Railway Children when Jenny Agutter says "Daddy! My Daddy!". Gets me every time. I am 48 years old.

I like this, because before I read it, I was thinking about my first encounter with chillies.
It was at school , and five of us managed to get dried chilli in our eyes. I was thinking of posting about it, but couldn't be bothered, but thinking about it made me think of yellow stew with currents in it, and how I would have to bring it up to show that back then we had no idea what a chilli was.

Whatever happened to what I call English curry? I suppose chip shop curry sauce is sort of similar, but it's not yellow enough and doesn't have enough fruit.

Coronation chicken?
I remember my dad making curries from leftover Sunday roasts, that'd be heavy on the sultanas, but light on any sort of sauce.

Is piccalilli remotely similar?

That was an attempt to replicate Indian pickles, was it not?

but it's yellow and has fruit in it, and I'm clutching at straws here.

No, it was always bright yellow,
and contained chicken,carrots, peas, sultanas and sometimes apple or potatoes. The taste was bland with the slightest hint of curry powder. It disappeared in the mid 80's. I suppose it was around the time Indian restaurants and takeaways and the crappy jars of curry sauce a la Sharwoods started appearing.

Piccalilli hasn't disappeared...
I bought my dad a trio of piccalillis from fortnums as a stocking filler only last Christmas. He said they were ok, ESP the chilli one, but not as good as (frankly terrifying neon yellow) branstons one in his cupboard (probably expiring in 2004. Dad "doesn't believe" in best before dates).

Fortnums is great
for stocking fillers, and day to day groceries, but unnecessary really when Claridges will be able to provide most of the bits you need.

Best Before dates are being abolished
...as too many people confuse them with "Use By", and ditch perfectly good food.

and lest we forget, the Vesta chow mein with it's fry-to-make-fluffy 'noodles'
that you could break a tooth on if you were unwary!

Haha yes I toyed with mentioning Vesta curries
God they were rank. And I really, really want one right now.
