Hi All, This topic and comments made sparks many memories for me; Circa the 50's, 60's and 70's - in Ashton.

Contemplation;  Be there for Others, but never leave Yourself behind.

All the best,

The Cup is coming home ...for sure. Never have so many opportunities presented themselves - since the glory of 1966.  We can do it - Go England and the crew.

I think England MAY survive to go through from their Group stage ... but after that - I think it will be another disappointment.  As a dual national, LOL,  I have Australia to support too (But don't think they'll survive their Group stage)

Ah well, it seems like a well run competition..... cheers, Larry E.

Do you remember a black haired lad called Sid, I can't remember his second name but he was well known and quite a tough lad

Nope thats a bit vague for a name (Sid) - perhaps someone else can enlighten us ?

Have a good week...

I was so impressed about member contributions for recipe for 'Tater Ash' I thought I would ask for another popular Item - Back in the Day..?

Can someone please post a genuine recipe for Cheese & Onion Pie ?

All help appreciated.....

I remember tater hash very well and make it as I remember from childhood some 60 years ago. The actual ingredient quantities are variable according to taste I think. I am sure there is no definitive recipe but what I will do is make it again as I usually do but this time measure all ingredients and record timings then send you my method.
I am sure the way I make it will be very similar to the way other Ashton residents have made it but I have no claim to any authenticity as I just make it as it was done at home in Ashton. Burlington.

Made Tater Hash today, so here is my take on it.


700gm of potatoes cut into half golf ball sized pieces
300gm of onions roughly chopped
300gm of carrots sliced into 0.5 thick "coins"
600gm beef mince
1 litre of beef stock ( I used a litre of water plus two Beef Oxo cubes )
Black pepper

1. Brown the mince making sure it is thoroughly broken up.
2. Put all the ingredients, including the stock, mixed thoroughly, into a suitably sized pan and bring to the boil.
3. Reduce to a medium simmer for 15 minutes or until the potatoes and carrots are cooked. Test by pricking them with the point of a knife. They should be soft.
4. Add salt and pepper to taste.

You might need to add more fluid during the cooking process if it seems to be drying up.
Also try adding Worcestershire sauce.

I would be interested to see if this is similar to how other people remember it. Enjoy.

Hi Burlington... and thank you for this contribution I will pass it on to my wife who I'm sure will give it a go soon.

Much appreciated,

Larry E. (kenyon st kid)
