I hope so. If It is then I'll be much happier because I don't even remember when I had butter last time. There was a time I used to eat 50 grams of butter(Home made because we have milk dairy) everyday in the morning. You know, sometime internet is boon and bane, so many different information gets circulated which just baffles. But I have ghee frequently.

I am told South Africans are worse about spotted dick. And what is funny about Cockfosters?

Hahahahahahahaha! We have had shops stopping selling lard in Europe too, but for different reasons; increased demand particularly from people from Central and Eastern Europe has exhausted the supply. If you find Paul Wheaton's other website, there is a post somewhere about how to make lard from a pig. It looks nearly as evil to the pig as a Greenland shark to a seal; the fish can strip the blubber without going inside the seal's ribcage. The lard video also shows how to make pork scratchings or similar.

You aren't pressing me for oil. When I was at school, the biology master had a well‑ripened, dried sunflower and rubbed his finger over it to produce eyes and a mouth rather like the little Weed and said if we ever had children with flowers with faces in their picture books we should tell them we have really seen a flower with a face.
. . . Sunflower seeds are basically like nuts, and like all nuts, can be pressed for oil. . . .

The only olive oil I recommend is extra virgin olive oil. It has a lower smoke point than regular olive oil, but richer for vitamins and minerals.
Wikipedia wrote:Virgin means the oil was produced by the use of mechanical means only, with no chemical treatment. The term virgin oil with reference to production method includes all grades of virgin olive oil, including Extra Virgin, Virgin, Ordinary Virgin and Lampante Virgin olive oil products, depending on quality ...
Wikipedia wrote: Extra-virgin olive oil Comes from virgin oil production only, and is of higher quality: among other things, it contains no more than 0.8% free acidity, and is judged to have a superior taste, having some fruitiness and no defined sensory defects. Extra-virgin olive oil accounts for less than 10% of oil in many producing countries; the percentage is far higher in the Mediterranean countries (Greece: 80%, Italy: 65%, Spain 50%).
