Just eaten some lovely honeycomb tripe with salt and vinegar on and then I log on to this photo - inherited my love for tripe from my mum,God bless her.Although you would have thought that a visit to Sutcliffes tripe works,next to Smiths Dairies in Belle Green Lane would be more than enough to put anybody off.The smell from there was more than ripe !!!Obviously dudn't put me off !Great photo Dave.

Love tripe cold with vinegar, tomatoes and plenty salt and pepper, brilliant, they seem to have everything there except brawn and elder.

Further to my comment re `offal`dear price; price of tripe on this stall is 60p/100g. This is £6/kg. I bought a boneless shoulder of Welsh lamb from a farm on Anglesey, in Asda, last week at £6.68/kg. I was brought up in the late 1920`s on tripe & onions in winter, when price of tripe was about 6d/lb.

A man went into a tripe shop one day and asked for a1lb of honeycomb tripe, with request to put vinegar on and make sure it went into every hole . The shop assistant said him. Youre a Sailor aren't you? He replied yes . How did she know he was a sailor.-------------he had a sailors uniform on!
